Thomas Merton, the Trappist monk who died in 1968, was one of the greatest spiritual writers of the twentieth century. His published works include a hundred volumes in many genres. But it was perhaps in the essay form that Merton found his natural element. This volume is the first to provide a broad cross-section of Merton’s work as an essayist, collecting characteristic examples of his astonishing output and the range of his interestsfrom Faulkner and Zen to nuclear war and the contemplative life.
Patrick F. O’Connell is professor in the departments of English and theology at Cannon University, Erie, Pennsylvania. A founding member and former president of the International Thomas Merton Society, he edits The Merton Seasonal and is coauthor of The Thomas Merton Encyclopedia.
