Box: 5 Fold: 20 "The Heart of Time" by J. Mambrino (Tranl. by D. Jones)
Datespan: 11/3/75-1/15/76

DESCRIPTION: Contains several AMs drafts (designations given below) of a translation by DJ of a poem by his friend Father Jean Mambrino. Includes 1 ANS and 2 TN by HG annotating the manuscripts which apparently presented something of a mystery initally because both inspiration and style seemed so foreign to DJ's. HG's note on 1/15/76, however, explains the context of the manuscripts:

@ "And what a surprising discovery the authorship is. Bernard Wall was a close friend of Fr. Jean Mambrino who I think died only a few years before Bernard. Bernard often spoke of Fr. Mambrino and showed me some of his letters. I knew he had met David but I did not know - until now - that Fr. J.M. knew David's work as thoroughly as he did; nor that he admired David's writing as intensely as he did.

@ "The Bard of the Passion, he calls him. No one else has said just that. The more one reads David the more it becomes clear that one cannot get very far into the heart of his writing without appreciating the depth and long continuance of his contemplation of the Passion. And the poem becomes highly perceptive when one understands what it is about and that it was a poem written for David. And evidently David by his translation of the poem responded to Mambrino's acute perception."

@ Includes the original AMS of the poem by Fr. Mambrino (in French, inscribed to DJ and dated August 1956) along with a TCS to DJ which reads: "Dear David, Yesterday afternoon was delightful. I wish I could thank you. Here is at least the promised poem, as a vanishing echo of a secret I cannot tell... God bless you. Jean."

@ The manuscripts in this folder have been designated as follows for inventory purposes. The order does not necessarily reflect original intention of the authors.

@ A typed note by HG accompanies the file: "These notes are not yet suitable for inspection by the general public though they contain material which will be of considerable biographical importance; and the passages about painting are of great interest...But in ten or fifteen years the same sensitivities will probably not apply and the notes should then take their place among David's other papers as part of the archive..." dated 1/27/76.
