THOMAS DAY Sandford and Merton Thomas Day was born in London on June 22, 1748, and educated at the Charterhouse and at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Entering the Middle Temple in 1765, he was... More > called to the Bar ten years later, but never practised. A contemporary and disciple of Rousseau, he convinced himself that human suffering was, in the main, the result of the artificial arrangements of society, and inheriting a fortune at an early age he spent large sums in philanthropy. A poem written by him in 1773, entitled "The Dying Negro," has been described as supplying the keynote of the anti-slavery movement. His "History of Sandford and Merton," published in three volumes between the years 1783 and 1789, provided a channel through which many generations of English people have imbibed a kind of refined Rousseauism.< Less

Thomas Merton was a pioneer in recovering the classical western contemplative path. The Beats of the North Cascades (Rexroth, Snyder, Whalen, Kerouac) pointed the way to the contemplative trail,... More > also. There has been little discussion on the relationship between Merton and the Beats of the North Cascades. The correspondence and interaction between these men is legendary and thick with insight and wisdom. Thomas Merton and the Beats of the North Cascades highlights how and why these lookout prophets and sages attempted to reverse centuries of addiction to the vita activa and American manifest destiny and replace such a way of being and doing with the vita contemplativa. The mythic meaning of peaks and mountains, lookouts and valley loomed large in the life and writings of Merton and the North Cascade poets. This missive examines and probes how and why such rock spires and snow capped peaks spoke to the depths of these writers, and how such vistas and ancient trails can still draw us ever upwards.< Less

More > collection of short stories for children that Maria Edgeworth continued some years after Honora died. He eventually expanded his original short story into the first volume of The History of Sandford and Merton which was published anonymously in 1783; two further volumes subsequently followed in 1786 and 1789. The book was wildly successful and was reprinted until the end of the nineteenth century. It retained enough popularity or invoked enough nostalgia at the end of the nineteenth century to inspire a satire, The New History of Sandford and Merton, whose preface proudly announces that it will “teach you what to don’t.” Collection of connected stories which follows Tommy Merton from a spoiled boy into a virtuous man, thanks largely to the influence of the honest Henry Sandford (a poor farmer's son).< Less
