Notes:  MP3-CD. "Before his ordination, Thomas Merton taught writing classes at Columbia University, where he counted a young J. D. Salinger amoung his students. At the Abbey of Gethsemani, he continued to give talks on literature to the monastic community. With these remastered recordings of his talks, you too can experience Merton's gifts as an English teacher. His dual identity as a monk and literati make him the premier guide to poetic expression."--Container. Contents: Metaphysical Intuition in Poetry -- Mythical Imagination -- The Present State of Poetry -- A Classical Consciousness -- Eliot of Milton: "What Is a Classic?" -- The Classical Outlook.
