Antanas Ramonas

The Hill of Calm

    The selection of works by A.Ramonas "The Hill of Calm" presents his essays, stories, a tale "Mikelis" and his thoughts about literature.
    A.Ramonas speaks softly. He is not passionate, does not rise his voice even at the moment of most disastrous tragedy; it seems that he is playing chamber music. Nevertheless his unaffected style is really suggestive, genuine, and impressive. The intimacy and closeness is invigorated by a very tender and sensitive handling of the spiritual life of a man, from which the writer never relinquishes.
