Sull'Autore

Born in France, Thomas Merton was the son of an American artist and poet and her New Zealander husband, a painter. Merton lost both parents before he had finished high school, and his younger brother was killed in World War II. Something of the ephemeral character of human endeavor marked all his mostra altro works, deepening the pathos of his writings and drawing him close to Eastern, especially Buddhist, forms of monasticism. After an initial education in the United States, France, and England, he completed his undergraduate degree at Columbia University. His parents, nominally friends, had given him little religious guidance, and in 1938, he converted to Roman Catholicism. The following year he received an M.A. from Columbia University and in 1941, he entered Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky, where he remained until a short time before his death. His working life was spent as a Trappist monk. At Gethsemani, he wrote his famous autobiography, "The Seven Storey Mountain" (1948); there he labored and prayed through the days and years of a constant regimen that began with daily prayer at 2:00 a.m. As his contemplative life developed, he still maintained contact with the outside world, his many books and articles increasing steadily as the years went by. Reading them, it is hard to think of him as only a "guilty bystander," to use the title of one of his many collections of essays. He was vehement in his opposition to the Vietnam War, to the nuclear arms race, to racial oppression. Having received permission to leave his monastery, he went on a journey to confer with mystics of the Hindu and Buddhist traditions. He was accidentally electrocuted in a hotel in Bangkok, Thailand, on December 10, 1968. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Il volume presenta l'edizione critica dell'ultimo manoscritto lasciato da Merton, riveduto in parte dall'autore ma mai pubblicato. Solo dopo la sua morte avvenuta nel novembre del 1967, viene alla luce questo volume riportando tutte le correzioni e la parti aggiuntive indicate dall'autore. Thomas Merton, il prolifico monaco la cui autobiografia La Montagna dalle Sette Balze introdusse la contemplazione cristiana nel 20° secolo, spiega cosa si intende per contemplazione cristiana, acquisita o infusa, proponendo per la prima volta l'insegnamento dei maestri dello Zen buddista e i metodi di meditazioni orientali.… (altro)
