The present book on Sri Aurobindo's Savitri is a significant effort to explore the main line of symbolism of the epic. While relating the philosophy of the Yogi-poet to post modern issues, the author also links the legend to its original source of the Mahabharata of Vyasa. There is a short account of the history of composition of Savitri and a detailed study of the poetic style of Sri Aurobindo. Taking note of the various charges leveled at the opus, the author has attempted to defend the poem against these charges. Some complex and profound issues have been made comprehensible by the simple language and easy style of the author and this makes the book immensely readable.
