QuotationYesterday's copy of the German edition of your Psalms [English translation, The Psalms of Struggle and Liberation, published in 1971] came in, and reminded me that it is a very long time since I wrote to you. The translation seems to me very good and I liked the "Postfac" which I thought was understanding and will do you a lot of good with German readers. I wanted previously to interest Hans Urs von Balthasar in your work, and sent him [Stefan] Baciu's article about you in German, but don't know what he thought about it.
