St. John of the Cross (1542-1591) was a Carmelite friar. The Living Flame of Love is one of his most famous works, and was published around 1585.
St John of the Cross was a Carmelite friar and mystic who lived in Spain in the second half of the sixteenth century. He helped Teresa of Avila with her reform of the Carmelite Order and was imprisoned for political reasons. He wrote this beautiful poem on the love between the soul and God while in prison in Toledo. The work consists of the poem and a prose commentary on it. ‘Justly celebrated as a milestone in Spanish literature as well as a spiritual classic.’ (Baroness Cox, from the Introduction)

In 1564, St. John of the Cross, a Spanish mystic, was arrested and banished to a remote Andalusian monastery for his involvement in leading the Carmelite order to reform. During his captivity, he had frequent visions of God and composed many mystical poems. Two of the greatest are "The Dark Night of the Soul", which explores the pain of his felt absence of God, and "The Living Flame", a paean to the joy and peace experienced by the soul after reunion with God.

Those who turn to spiritual classics for guidance and inspiration often find their style daunting. The original texts still have much to offer but their diction and idiom, chosen for another era and audience, pose an obstacle to many contemporary readers. John of the Cross Living Flame of Love for Everyone is the second in a series that aims to make some of the greatest Christian teachers accessible to all. John of the Cross, an acknowledged master of spirituality, wrote The Living Flame not for his fellow Carmelites but for a layperson, a widow whom he had befriended. He reveals that the way of union is open to everyone, an especially powerful insight for a contemporary audience. The Living Flame, short though it is, contains a complete synthesis of his teaching.
Gerald Brenan is well known for his 'expository' works on Spanish history and literature, and, in this 1975 book, returns to an early interest in the Spanish mystics to produce an absorbing study of St John of the Cross, one of the foremost of Catholic mystics and poets.
