At once a stirring meditation on the intersection of spirituality identity creativity and existence this record of Milosz and Merton s decade long correspondence serves as a fascinating insight into the lives of two individuals attempting to thoughtfully engage with the tumultuous currents of the global climate of the 1960s The juxtaposition of lives of these two men as expressed through their letters reveals a kinship of souls and a desire to be heard and to listen to learn and to grow together Whether probing into the nature of the cultural impact of television s ascension in America or discussing the role of thoughtful activism amidst the ideological and military conflicts of their day they persist in their mutual pursuit of an examined life deeply engaged with both the temporal and the eternal Through it all they demonstrate a considered and compelling striving towards being by which I found myself inspired and convicted

There is a strange combination of exhilaration and disappointment when two of one s heroes conduct a correspondence Will the veil of the temple be rent Will a breakthrough resulting from the greatness of the individuals involved result in new modes of thought Well yes and no Thomas Merton was a French born Trappist monk who wrote books of poetry religion and assorted other subjects Czeslaw Milosz on the other hand was a Lithuanian born poet who lived much of his life in Poland before coming to the United States to teach at Berkeley He is a Nobel Prize winner in my opinion Merton should also have been so honoredBoth men were Catholics Milosz in an anguished and alienated Eastern European sense and Merton having bought the farm so to speak on an eternal pendulum between the institution of Catholicism and its occasional banality Yet both writers come alive particularly in the earlier letters Here is Merton writing some words about his belief in God that would never receive an imprimatur from a Catholic censorhis is the thing that finally hit me My darkness was very tolerable when it was only dark night something spiritually approved But it is rapidly becoming exterior darkness A nothingness in oneself into which one is pressed down further and further until one is inferior to the whole human race and hates the inferiority Yet clings to it as the only thing one has Then the problem is that perhaps here in this nothingness is infinite preciousness the presence of the God Who is not an answer the God of Job to Whom we must be faithful above all beyond all But the terrible thing is that He is not known to others is incommunicableHere in one paragraph is my own religious credo which I have never seen better expressed Toward the end of the correspondence the two drifted further apart with Merton hectoring Milosz for unpublished poems from Polish poets to appear in one of the many journals with which he was associatedMilosz writes from a different point a view as a man who has learned to distrust ideologies because he lived where they were so freuently manipulated One disagreement between the two was over the issue of peace movements Merton was very involved while Milosz hung backAs to the efficacy of calls for peace picketing etc they probably rather increase the danger as I said 1 by exasperation and polarization of opinion into two hostile camps which is a boon for rightwing radicals 2 by a possible miscalculation over there in the Kremlin a possibility of making one step too far in the blackmailThe letters span a ten year period during the Cold War between 1958 and 1968 when Thomas Merton died of a heart attack in Bangkok while conferring with Asian religious leaders Milosz died in 2004This collection of letters does touch upon greatness at times but it also shows how events such as the Free Speech Movement at Berkeley and Merton s continuing interest in Catholic liturgy affected their friendship During that time they met face to face only twice Would that I were a fly on the wall for either of these meetings
