The Mahabharata: Essays and Translations by Sri Aurobindo
Look Inside the Book
Description
Publisher's Note

This book contains all Sri Aurobindo’s independent prose writings on the Mahabharata, as well as all his translations of passages from the epic. These writings and translations were done at various times between 1893 and 1902, when Sri Aurobindo was living in Baroda. A few paragraphs on the Mahabharata, written in Pondicherry in 1920, have been included in an appendix.

The essays and translations in this book (with the exception of the Gita translation) were first published together in 1991 in a book titled On the Mahabharata. The present work is a revised version of that book, brought out under a new title.

 

Back of The Book

This Book contains all Sri Aurobindo’s independent prose Writings on the Mahabharata, as well as all his translations of passages from the epic, including the first six chapters of the Bhagavad Gita. In his main, essay, Sri Aurobindo examines Vyasa's poetic style and Brings Out his “peculiar appeal to humanity."

"Vyasa is the most masculine of writers. He has that is to say the masculine qualities, restraint, dignity, indifference to ornament, strength without ostentation, energy economised, a strong, pure and simple taste, a high & great spirit, more than any Writer I know.

"the style of this powerful writer is perhaps the one example in literature of strength in its purity; a strength undefaced by violence & excess yet not weakened by flagging and negligence."
