In America, Johannes Bobrowski is best known (though as yet insufficiently) for his hushed, elliptical, incantatory poems, which respond as specifically as Paul Celan's to the devastation wrought by the Third Reich. In the course of a brief career (released from a Soviet POW camp in 1949, he died in 1965), Bobrowski also produced a significant body of prose. Like his poetry, the short pieces collected in Darkness and a Little Light combine a sense of reserve before the unspeakable with a complete simplicity of tone. Often no longer than a page, they remind the reader of the burden of history, loss, and violence that haunts even the most seemingly ordinary of everyday acts.

Joyce Rupp explains to us that only in accepting our darkness will we be able to grow in love and truth.
This is not an easy task to explore, much easier to keep on going in the same direction and not face our "demons". Carl Jung calls this our "shadow self". Man and His Symbols Joseph Campbell names it "our mask". The Hero with a Thousand Faces (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)
There will be no new life in us unless we settle the old life that has been lingering and building up resentments and hurts.
