Publisher's Note

The Future Poetry was first published in the monthly review Arya in thirty-two instalments between December 1917 and July 1920. These instalments were written immediately before their publication. Sri Aurobindo twice undertook to revise The Future Poetry. During the late 1920s or early 1930s he revised seventeen chapters; in 1950 he dictated changes and additions to twenty chapters, thirteen of which had been revised earlier. The work of revision was never completed and The Future Poetry was not published in the form of a book during Sri Aurobindo’s lifetime. In 1953 the Arya text of The Future Poetry was brought out as a book, with only two passages of the later revision added. In 1985 an edition incorporating all available revision was published.
On Quantitative Metre was published in 1942 as an appendix to Collected Poems and Plays and as a separate book. It was written shortly before its publication. This edition of The Future Poetry with On Quantitative Metre has been checked against the author’s manuscripts and the original printed texts.
