Product Description

St. John of the Cross' poetry has won nearly endless honours. "So sublime is this poetry that it scarcely seems to belong to this world at all; it is hardly capable of being assessed by literary criteria," M. C. D'Arcy writes in the Preface to this volume, quoting Marcelino Menéndez y Pelayo, the illustrious Spanish historian and critic, in praise of the Mystical Doctor's poems: " The Holy Spirit has flowed through each of these poetry, enriching and sanctifying them along the way." Roy Campbell expertly delivers the same mystical freshness and intensity of the Dark Night of the Soul and the Spiritual Canticle in these twenty-two poems, first published in 1952 and lauded by Roger Scruton as an icon of "passionate Christian mysticism."

These poems, in conjunction with the Preface by M. C. D’Arcy and the Afterword by Conrad Pepler, O.P., constitute an occasion to enter the inexhaustible mystery of the Divine.
