Abstract
 
Description
A spiritual writer of rare intensity and award-winning poet, Nicaraguan Ernesto Cardenal has written one of the great prose meditations of our time. Although this short, seemingly simple book has sold more than a quarter of a million copies in the author's native Spanish (Vida en el Amor), it has yet to have a similar effect on the English-speaking world. In language and imagery of great strength and beauty, Love sings of the irrefutable presence of the love that flows through all things. In the words of Cardenal's friend, Thomas Merton, ?This book is filled with invitations to drink and delight in the banquet of love.... What we meet here is entirely traditional ? it reminds us at times of St. Augustine or of the mystics of bridal union of the German Rhineland ? and yet entirely modern, bearing resemblance to the vision of Teilhard de Chardin.? - from Amzon
