Inspired by the work of Emily Dickinson, American monk Brother Paul Quenon composed his latest poetry collection, Afternoons with Emily. The pieces are often contemplative and speak to the joys of the outdoors as well as monastic life, but also often overflow with humour and a whimsical sensibility.

About the author

Paul Quenon, OSCO, is a monk of the Abbey of Gethsemani. Brother Paul cooks, sings a lot in and out of choir, hikes and meditates outdoors. He puts words together into something like a poem, and shoots a camera at something like a picture. Some say he’s only something like a monk, but he has stopped guessing about that after 50 years in the monastery. He is the author of Terrors of Paradise, Laughter: My Purgatory, and Monkswear.
