Thoughts in Solitude

by Thomas Merton

CD-Audio Publication Date: 15/10/2014

 
As timely now as when it was originally published in 1956, "Thoughts in Solitude" addresses the pleasure of a solitary life, as well as the necessity for quiet reflection in an age when so little is private. In thoughtful and eloquent prose, Merton writes of our inalienable right to solitude and interior freedom. Society, he tells us, depends for its existence on the personal solitude of its members. Merton writes: When society is made up of men who know no interior solitude it can no longer be held together by love: and consequently it is held together by a violent and abusive authority. But when men are violently deprived of the solitude and freedom which are their due, the society in which they live becomes putrid, it festers with servility, resentment and hate." "Thoughts in Solitude" stands alongside "The Seven Storey Mountain" as one of Merton's most enduring and popular works. "
