Review:

What a beautiful translation! Starr offers us an entryway and a path into this sixteenth-century mystic s mind, and gives us a fine, personal introduction to begin our luminous journey. Natalie Goldberg, bestelling author of Writing Down the Bones

Mirabai Starr s admirably modernized translation restores to us a classic in all its unflinching candor. Andrew Harvey, bestselling author of The Direct Path

I am grateful for Mirabai Starr s fluid, inviting translation of this important text. from the Foreword by Thomas Moore, bestselling author of Care of the Soul

Starr, who teaches philosophy and religious studies at the University of New Mexico, offers an engaging and evocative new translation of John's most famous treatise, Dark Night of the Soul. Starr's lyrical translation and her thoughtful introduction bring new life to John's powerful treatise on the life of the soul. Publishers Weekly

When the ordeals of higher stages of the path of love begin, the seeker will find no more astute or accurate guide to their meaning and mystery than St. John of the Cross s Dark Night of the Soul.

Mirabai Starr s admirably modernized translation restores to us a classic in all its unflinching candor. Andrew Harvey, bestselling author of The Direct Path

What a beautiful translation! We all have used the title as an expression dark night of the soul but few of us have gone further. Starr offers us an entryway and a path into this sixteenth-century mystic s mind, and gives us a fine, personal introduction to begin our luminous journey. Natalie Goldberg, bestelling author of Writing Down the Bones

I am grateful for Mirabai Starr s fluid, inviting translation of this important text. He translation allows me to adapt John s words to my life with an immediacy I ve never felt before in relation to this work. With this marvelous English version in hand readers might discover their spiritual calling here and make the all-important shift from curing the personality to caring for the soul. from the Foreword by Thomas Moore, bestselling author of Care of the Soul

Not only beautiful, it is remarkably sensual. --Los Angeles Times
