About the book:

While imprisoned in a tiny prison cell for his attempts to reform the Church, sixteenth-century Spanish mystic John of the Cross composed many of his now classic poems of the souls longing for God. Written on a scroll smuggled to him by one of his guards, his songs are the ultimate expression of the spiritual seekers journey from estranged despair to blissful union with the divine

After escaping his captors, John fell into a state of profound ecstasy and wrote Dark Night of the Soul. Later, he added an important commentary to his poem to guide other searching souls along the arduous path to communion with God. Here, for the first time, a scholar unaffiliated with the Catholic Church has translated this timeless work. Mirabai Starr, who has studied Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism, lends the seekers sensibility to Johns powerful text and brings this classic work to the twenty-first century in a brilliant and beautiful rendering
