Tusar N. Mohapatra Says: May 10th, 2007 at 10:46 pm Glad to know Marko, you are a connoisseur of poetry as well. Doesn’t matter if Dante “did not write from the perspective of a teaching” but the way you relish the original lines in Old Italian is supremely spiritual, and that is far more important. There is a very fine book captioned Dante and Sri Aurobindo: a comparative study of The Divine Comedy and Savitri by Prema Nandakumar, Publisher: Madras: Affiliated East-West Press, . Savitri is a poem in blank verse, i.e. iambic pentameter with usual variations. You have rightly insisted on the poetry aspect than any teaching and I hope you will allow yourself a little more time to delve into it before passing any judgment.
