About The English of Savitri: Volume 2 (Book Three – The Book of the Divine Mother)

Like the first book in this series, this one is also based on transcripts of classes held at Savitri Bhavan. The author's aim in those classes was to read the poetry as correctly as possible, according to the natural rhythms of English speech, to gain a basic understanding of the vocabulary, sentence structure, and imagery used by Sri Aurobindo, and thereby gain a better understanding and appreciation of the poem. This volume covers the four cantos of Book Three, The Book of the Divine Mother. As the previous volume covered Book One and this one resumes with Book Three, a brief summary of Book Two is given in an introductory section to provide some continuity to the series.
