Abstract: In many ways, The Road to Silence, the slim second volume of autobiography by the Cork-based poet Sean Dunne, conforms to the "circular" pattern of spiritual biography as theorized by David Leigh and other critics. This article argues that this is one of several ways that Dunne's memoir can profitably be read as an intertext with Augustine's Confessions. However, Dunne's book differs markedly from many of the conventions of both classic and contemporary spiritual autobiographies. Prominent among these differences are its brevity; its dispassionate tone; and the manner in which it scrupulously maintains a distinction between the author's interior life and his life in the world
