During his Cambridge days Sri Aurobindo was considered to be a brilliant scholar in Greek. His interest in this classical language was not merely academic, his relationship with Greek literature and culture was very intimate.
In this book K.D. Sethna, true to his inquisitive spirit, gives an account of how "Greece lived with a power not only intimate but also creative" in Sri Aurobindo. With his customary penetrating observation and analysis, the author shows this relationship between Sri Aurobindo and Greece, as it manifested in many forms in Sri Aurobindo's varied creative fields all of which makes a very interesting study.
