Shy and sheltered as a young woman Kathleen Norris wasn t prepared for the sex drugs and bohemianism of Bennington College in the late s b b and when she moved to New York City after graduation it was a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire In this chronicle Norris remembers the education she received both formal and fortuitous the influence of her mentor Betty Kray who shunned the spotlight while serving as a guiding force in the poetry world of the late th century her encounters with such figures as James Merrill Jim Carroll Denise Levertov Stanley Kunitz Patti Smith and Erica Jong and her eventual decision to leave Manhattan for the less crowded landscape she described so memorably in Dakota This account of the making of a young writer will resonate with anyone who has stumbled bravely into a bigger world and found the poetry that lurks on rooftops and in railroad apartments b b and with anyone who has enjoyed the blessings of inspiring teachers and great friends, Why would a married woman with a thoroughly Protestant background and often more doubt than faith be drawn to the ancient practice of monasticism to a community of celibate men whose days are centered around a rigid schedule of prayer work and scripture This is the question that poet Kathleen Norris asks us as somewhat to her own surprise she found herself on two extended residencies at St John s Abbey in Minnesota Part record of her time among the Benedictines part meditation on various aspects of monastic life i The Cloister Walk i demonstrates from the rare perspective of someone who is both an insider and outsider how immersion in the cloistered world its liturgy its ritual its sense of community can impart meaning to everyday events and deepen our secular lives In this stirring and lyrical work the monastery often considered archaic or otherworldly becomes immediate accessible and relevant to us no matter what our faith may be br br A New York Times bestseller for weeks br A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, In this insightful and deeply personal work Kathleen Norris an award winning poet and author of both Dakota A Spiritual Geography and The Cloister Walk draws on her life experiences her poetry and her love of the Benedictine tradition to discuss the mysterious way that the daily or quotidian can open us to the transforming presence of God This volume is the text of the Madeleva Lecture in Spirituality sponsored by the Center for Spirituality at Saint Mary s College Notre Dame Indiana, No description available
