        “Silence intensifies sensation, but blurs the sense of time.” Building on this speculation, Maitland’s ambitious, wide-ranging book investigates the varied nature of creativity and dives.   Patrick Leigh Fermor () was an intrepid traveler, a heroic soldier, and a writer with a unique prose style. After his stormy schooldays, followed by the walk across Europe to Constantinople that begins in A Time of Gifts () and continues through Between the Woods and the Water (), he lived and traveled in the Balkans and the Greek : New York Review Books.

        So perhaps a time of silence – a fast from too many words about the mystery – joined with quiet contemplation of that mystery – would do us good. It could help to empty us. This is a fast – and a fast empties our bellies. This is a time of almsgiving, which empties our wallets. "In my opinion one of the finest novels of our time." - Graham Greene Shusaku Endo is Japan's foremost novelist, and Silence is generally regarded to be his masterpiece. In a perfect fusion of treatment and theme, this powerful novel tells the story of a seventeenth-century Portuguese priest in Japan at the height of the fearful persecution of the small Christian community/5.

      On the subject of Buddhism, your second book is written by a Buddhist. Tell us about it. Palmo is a contemporary Buddhist, who has spent a great deal of time, including a solid three-year stint, in complete silence. Silence Summary. Father Rodrigues and Father Garrpe have just received bad news: their former teacher, Father Ferreira, has renounced his faith after being captured by the Japanese government. Upset and confused, the two priests decide to defy the country's ban .

A time to keep silence is a Fortunately for us he did write, and write beautifully. Known as a travel writer, he was far more - his works are full of not only travel, but history, philosophy, art and an overflowing evanescence of language/5.

Time of Silence 5, words, approx. 20 pages Time of Silence by Luis Martín-Santos Luis Martín-Santos, son of a military officer, was born in Larache, Morocco, inand raised in San Sebastian, in the Spanish Basque country. In Luis Martín-Santos he published his novel Tiempo de silencio (“ Time of Silence ”), the first of a projected trilogy.

The novel is about a medical student, Pedro, thrust among inhabitants of the Madrid slums and confronted with their often violent adaptation to. Silence (沈黙, Chinmoku) is a novel of theological fiction by Japanese author Shūsaku Endō, published in English by Peter Owen Publishers.

It is the story of a Jesuit missionary sent to 17th century Japan, who endures persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan ("Hidden Christians") that followed the defeat of the Shimabara : Shūsaku Endō. Madrid speaks, however, in its most ambitious and ambivalent tongue, imparting a degree of power to the novel.

More interesting than arresting, it is at least a welcome break in the silence of translations from contemporary Spain. The Silence is a well written, thoughtful, tense, well-paced thriller that kept me reading later into the night than I normally would.

To my delight he has a large back catalogue and if only a fraction of his work measures up to The Silence then I feel I’m in for a treat with my next few reads/5().
