Jointly translated by a Japanese scholar and an American poet, this collection spans 1500 years - from the early T'ang dynasty to the present day - and offers Zen poetry in all its diversity: Chinese poems of enlightenment and health, poems of the Japanese masters and many "haiku", the quintessential Zen art. Japan's contemporary Zen poet, Shinkichi Takahashi, is also well represented and the volume contains many poems never before rendered into English, as well as numerous examples of Zen painting.
