Poems containing the memories, reflections, and whimsy of a monk long practiced in the stark details of the monastic life open up the interior world of the monks and give insight into its importance. The religious habit, the hood, and the scapular are viewed from within by one who moves about in a habit and makes sense of it in some individual and unpredictable ways.
Paul Quenon, a monk since he was 17, became a novice under Thomas Merton when he entered the Abbey of Gethsemani. He is the author of Monkscript and Laughter: My Purgatory. He lives in Trappist, Kentucky.
