Under the Weight of Heaven

The Abbey of Gethsemani is one of the most famous monasteries in the world. In this new Black Moss anthology, poet John B. Lee has pulled together a remarkable collection of writing about the Abbey by authors who have stayed there and by monks who have lived there. Against the backdrop of this writing is the presence of the late poet and philosopher Thomas Merton who made this Abbey famous with his book Seven Storey Mountain.
