Poems of John of the Cross

Translated by David Lewis

Narrated by Denis Daly and Sarah Bacaller

Although his output was small, John of the Cross (1542 - 1591) is considered one of the most important figures in Spanish poetry. All his verse explores the same theme: the seach of the soul for union with its creator and the glory of the resulting 'mystical marriage.'

This selection of twenty poems opens with his most famous poem, 'The Obscure Night of the Soul' and concludes with a free translation of Psalm 137 (By the Waters of Babylon).
