Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk living in solitude, without phone, radio or television, and at the same time, through his writings, correspondence and visitors, a man deeply engaged in the world and its troubles, from racism to war. His books, best-sellers in many languages, continue to be widely read and discussed.
