The Merton Annual Volume 22 – The Poetry of Thomas Merton
“The authors of the essays presented in this volume have explored, discovered, and articulated insights gained from their study of Merton’s poetry — insights that will enhance our understanding and appreciation of Merton as a poet whose message needs to be heard today as he opens for our world at the outset of the twenty first century a road less traveled yet far more promising than any of the ones on the horizon.” From the Introduction by David Belcastro.
The Merton Annual publishes articles about Thomas Merton and about related matters of major concern to his life and work. Its purpose is to enhance Merton’s reputation as a writer and monk, to continue to develop his message for our times, and to provide a regular outlet for substantial Merton-related scholarship. The Merton Annual includes as regular features, reviews, review-essays, a bibliographic survey, interviews, and first appearances of unpublished or obscurely published Merton materials, photographs and art. Essays about related literary and spiritual matters are also considered.
