Merton’s Thoughts in Solitude shares the author’s reflections on a solitary life, as well as the importance of quiet reflection. Merton writes that inner solitude is closely tied to personal integrity, and thus implies responsibility and freedom.

Thoughts in Solitude is a timeless book, as society affords people increasingly less privacy. Merton argues that inner solitude is both a necessity for personhood and acceptance of God’s gift free of grace.

This timeless work will be enjoyed by anyone seeking to understand solitude or deepen their practice of quiet reflection.
