Learn new facts about Merton from this book! Dec 5 2013
By Claudia.PoetryPainter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is quite good in its coverage of Thomas Merton's life and I learned some new details such as "what kind of surgery did Merton have when he was in the hospital and met the student nurse?

The comparison with William Blake's life was also a uniquely covered topic and I was glad to see the similarities in their lives.

Also the clear deliniation of Merton as a heretic was interesting and helped to explain how becoming a Catholic saved Merton from destructive behaviors, how he needed the protection of the monestary's structure as an orphan and also from living in so many places in Europe and in the United States... he needed a physical "center"....

Well worth the read!
Highly recommended
