Familiar with Teresa, the founder of the Reformed Carmel, Thérèse drew upon her writing, especially The Way of Perfection. But she drew a greater and intimate inspiration from the poetry of John of the Cross. Both of these Spanish mystics also showed her the way of inner trial and adversity, but her voice remained her own. This chapter establishes how she was informed by Carmel tradition, but went her own way with it.
