Cassian and the Fathers : initiation into the monastic tradition by Thomas Merton( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cassian and the Fathers, the initial volume in the series of Novitiate Conferences of Thomas Merton, contains Merton's insights on patristic and monastic figures preceding the time of St. Benedict, above all John Cassian, the most significant bridge between the early desert fathers and the monastic life of the West. They reveal the continuing relevance of their teachings for contemporary monastics and other Christians." "Long visible in his works written for publication, the "public" Merton has recently been complemented by the "interpersonal" Merton disclosed in his correspondence and the "intimate" Merton revealed in his journals. These class notes prepared by Merton for teaching young men beginning their monastic life at the Abbey of Gethsemani cast light on Merton the teacher, novice master, and monk. They provide a privileged standpoint for observing Merton as an integral and important member of his monastic community. While these lectures need to be used critically in evaluating Merton's own perspectives, the dialectical relationship between Merton's public and private statements, including those made during the novitiate classes, makes evident a more complex and richer picture of his monastic and personal identity.

Journal by Henry David Thoreau( Book )
in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In hundreds of dated entries, Thoreau reported on the natural and social world as he saw it. His interest ranged over an incredibly wide area: birds and flowers, Greek classics, writing as an art, mammals, early Americana, Oriental literature, grasses; and his Journal includes them all. We can read his views on slavery and on the problem of the individual's relation to the State, views that every day become more pertinent. Furthermore, the Journal is still an untapped mine of information on mid-19th century American word usage, folklore, regional proverbs and social mores."--Jacket
