Thomas Merton – Intro Reading Guide to His Books

Thomas Merton Books

Sunday is the birthday of Thomas Merton, born 31 January 1915.

Merton was a monk who not only wrote elegantly about contemplative life, but also was a gifted poet and social critic. Here is an introductory guide to some of the Best Thomas Merton books . I’ve included an excerpt, where possible with each of the books.

3. The Collected Poems of Thomas Merton

This is a massive, and expensive, volume (and not available in ebook format), but it is worth every single penny of its price (and more), and understanding Merton as a poet really helps to bring the rest of his work into perspective.
