In this concluding volume of autobiography, Kathleen Raine reflects on the profound significance of Indian philosophy and wisdom, the 'India of the imagination'. When she visited India for the first time at the age of seventy-four, she brought with her the eye of a poet and the mind of a scholar-philosopher long steeped in the spiritual vision of both East and West. In this vivid and engaging narrative of her travels the poet speaks of those human depths that are beyond all superficial divisions, invoking the timeless order that is the culture of India, and which holds an urgent message for the spiritual renewal of humankind.
