Thomas Merton

All true poetic genius tends to generate prophetic insight. The poet cannot help but listen to awakening voices that are not yet audible to the rest of men. – Thomas Merton, from “Rubén Darío,” The Literary Essays of Thomas Merton. (New Directions Publishing Corporation March 1, 1985)
