About Collected Poems of Nirodbaran (Volume II)
The more than four hundred poems included in two volumes were written between 1936 and 1944 and demonstrate the sure development of Nirodbaran's poetic artistry under the meticulous guidance of Sri Aurobindo. While some of the poems have appeared previously, more than two hundred are published here for the first time. The numbered poems are presented in chronological order, with the original poem accompanied by Sri Aurobindo's corrections and comments followed by the final, revised version. These volumes trace the growth of a poet, reveal how writing poetry became a form of sadhana, and provide a glimpse of Sri Aurobindo's emphatic mastery of poetic feeling and technique. Volume Two contains poem numbers 152 to 424, written between March 1938 and January 1944.
