'Desiderata', that world-famous poem that begins, 'Go placidly amid the noise and haste', must be one of the best-loved poems in the English language, revered by millions as the ideal philosophy. Few people realise that it was written, not on a gravestone in an old churchyard, but in 1927, by the Indiana poet Max Ehrmann who died in 1945 and whose work, until the 1960s, was largely forgotten. This beautiful little book brings together more of the writings of this remarkable man, revealing a love of the world and a concern for its social problems that mark him as one of the greatest spokesmen of the twentieth century. Ehrmann was not afraid to express his thoughts about the evils and scandals he saw around him, and in his quest for contentment he turned to nature and the eternal passage of the seasons: his philosophical thoughts are a search for social truth and peace.Biographie de l'auteur :
Max Ehrmann was born in Terre Haute, Indiana and graduated from De Pauw University, going on to do postgraduate studies in law and philosophy at Harvard University. After practising law for several years he joined the family business, but retired ten years later to concentrate on writing. He died in 1945 and it was only in the late '60s, when 'Desiderata' became a cult poem of the new generation, that his work began to be better known.
