  • Meditations At Midnight

    $9.99

    Dive into the profound and poetic world of humanity’s paradoxical beauty and absurdity with Meditations at Midnight by Gary Jansen–a literary feast that ignites your love for books and leaves you pondering life’s mysteries.

    There are few books that can bring you face to face with your own humanity with all its tragic loveliness and at the same time lift you so high above it that you are able to dispassionately examine mankind’s absurdity and brilliance. Meditations at Midnight, by Gary Jansen, is such a book. Jansen’s stories, verses, and musings are at once familiar, startling, dreamy, funny, and nostalgic. He pays homage to his own favorite writers from Jack Kerouac to Stephen King to Ernest Hemingway to Emily Dickinson to Paulo Coelho and more. This is a book you can devour in one sitting or flip open and just nibble on a thought or a theme that suits your mood. Meditations at Midnight will awaken your love of literature–or inspire

  • Swift Lord You Are Not

    $21.95

    Some poets begin very early to write great poetry. Arthur Rimbaud wrote one of his best poems at 15, Percy Shelley published his first book of poetry at 18. But Kilian McDonnell, O.S.B., did not start until he was 75, after decades of writing as a professional theologian. Now 82 he gives us Swift, Lord, You Are Not, poems of the struggle to find God-waiting for the silence of God to break. He does not write pious verse, or inspirational poetry, but of wrestling with the illusive God. His themes are mostly biblical and monastic. He closes with an essay Poet: Can You Start at Seventy-Five? in which he describes the literary decisions he makes within the monastic context-decisions he needs to make with some dispatch. At 75 he does not have decades to mature. He writes with a new language.

  • Show Yourself To My Soul

    $18.95

    Out of Bengal and the Hindu spiritual tradition comes a Nobel prize-winning mystical poet whose time for broad, popular acceptance has come. William Butler Yeats fell in love with these poems almost a 100 years ago, the Nobel Committee honored them with their literature prize in 1913 and just recently The Utne Reader cited Tagore as one of today’s most overlooked spiritual writers. This new edition is important because its lyrical translation has been made from Tagore’s original Bengali and because it makes the entire collection of 157 Gitanjali, or “song offerings” available to a wider audience for the first time. Rabindranath Tagore wrote with the insight and emotion that so characterizes Kahlil Gibran, with the mystical passion that has made Jalaluddin Rumi so popular and with a simplicity and depth that remains fresh and attractive to today’s seekers.
