9780060654788: A Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life (The Journals of Thomas Merton, vol.3)

Merton writes candidly of his yearning for silence and contemplation, of conflicts with superiors and monastic routine, and his exploration of Zen, existentialism, Latin American culture, and Marxism. These restless, compelling reflections show him wrestling with how to live a contemplative life. The journal ends with arrangements afoot for the hermitage and retreat center where Merton would eventually live as a hermit.
