Notes:  Taken from all Merton Archive CD's from Reel 180 and 178-3. "Join Thomas Merton in exploring one of the world's greatest poets, Rainer Maria Rilke. Perhaps no poet has as great an influence on Merton as Rilke, who was born to a devout Catholic mother in eighteenth-century Bohemia. Deeply influenced by the spiritual figures of his time, Rilke explored God through the imaginative possibilities of poetry. With Merton as your guide, you will come to understand the abiding power of poetry." -- Container / Disc 1. Introduction by Dr. Michael W.
