Front Panel This volume contains letters written by Sri Aurobindo on poetry, literature, art and aesthetics, and their relation to the practice of Yoga. Before the present volume, collections of Sri Aurobindo's letters on poetry and art had been published in three different books. In this volume they are appearing together for the first time. Moreover, it contains about 500 letters that did not appear in any of the previous collections. In these letters Sri Aurobindo speaks about his own poetry, the poetry of his disciples, and the works of the world's great poets. He speaks about the various levels of poetic inspiration and the process of poetic creation. To aspiring writers he offers practical guidance. To spiritual seekers he explains the value of literary, artistic and musical activities in the practice of yoga. Within the intimacy of private correspondence,these letters reveal Sri Aurobindo's vision of the role of poetry and the arts in human development.
