As Dr. Granados writes “This talk will discuss an allegorical poem by Spanish Renaissance author and mystic San Juan de la Cruz (1542-1591). I will explain the literary devices used by the poet to communicate his otherwise ineffable mystical experience. ‘Noche oscura’ describes the poet’s interior journey in search of God, who dwells in the center of the soul. The poem is about love, not human love, but divine love.”
