John of the Cross is arguably the central figure in the Western Christian mystical tradition. All his writings are collected in this volume, including his poetry (in both Spanish and English), Sayings of Light and Love, Ascent of Mount Carmel, Dark Night of the Soul, Living Flame of Love, Special Counsels, and his letters. One commentator describes his complex writings as combining ''the imagination and sensitivity of a poet'' with ''the intellectual activity of a theologian trained in Thomist philosophy.'' He was deeply influenced by the Dionysian writings and Gregory of Nyssa, and defined the stages of spiritual life for all later Western spirituality. 814 pp.
