Thomas Merton: An Introduction
That description of Thomas Merton by his English headmaster influenced this captivating introductory look at the monk-writer and his works. Merton scholar William H. Shannon presents Merton's life story "to suggest that this mid-twentieth-century writer can speak meaningfully to women and men now several years into a new century, to develop some of the themes that make their way through his writings, and to suggest a possible order for reading his books as one enters into the huge library of Mertoniana ."
