Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
Now then, what do you think of the vision-poem by N K and its illustration by my “noble self”, and its significance? Qu'en dites-vous?1
Very remarkable – the poem, I mean. As for the vision I know it only through your work of art which leaves me stunned with astonishment if not admiration and therefore unable to articulate. Its greatest point is the bird which is a, chef-d'oeuvre.
1 This letter, with my question and drawing, is not dated. Very likely it was written on January 21, 1936 and sent separately from my notebook. Note, in Sri Aurobindo's answer of the 20th, the phrase “noble self”, and my reference, in the letter of the 22nd, to “another poem” of N K.
