ImprintNew York : New Directions. 1965
QuotationI walked in the woods (D[erby] D[ay] place) for a while; read some bits in a selection of Protestant Mystics - liked Rufus Jones and especially an anonymous Anglican woman called Aurelia who seems to be right on target! Then read more Montale. The "Eastbourn" poem. His motets are exquisite - one, a still life of Pompeian souvenirs, is as pretty as Mozart
Quotation SourceLearning to love: exploring solitude and freedom. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 6, 1966-1967.; Edited by Christine M. Bochen. / [San Francisco] : HarperCollins. 1997, p. 114-15
