The renowned Trappist monk Thomas Merton wrote Thoughts in Solitude in 1953 and 1954, when his superiors allowed him extended periods of seclusion and meditation. What has made this book such an enduring and popular work is that it recognizes how important solitude is to our morality, integrity, and ability to love. Thoughts in Solitude addresses the pleasure of a solitary life, as well as the necessity for quiet reflection in an age when so little is private. One does not have to be a monk to find solitude, notes Merton, solitude can be found in the act of contemplation and silent reflection in everyday life.
