Thomas Merton and the Counterculture

A Golden String

Authored by Ron Dart

Thomas Merton and the Counterculture: A Golden String is meant to introduce readers to the cast of literary characters that Merton dialogued with in his all too human journey. The sheer breadth of Merton's interests and commitments meant that Merton interacted with a wide range of creative artists, but his thoughtful engagement with the counterculture (including the Beats) has not been covered in the depth it could be-Thomas Merton and the Counterculture: A Golden String, from a diversity of perspectives and in a suggestive manner, adds a few more pieces to the larger puzzle of Merton's controversial and on the edge life and writings.
