Overview


Stonehouse has been called “the greatest of all Zen monks who made poetry their medium of instruction.” His works have rarely been available in English, but now all of the hermit monk’s poetry, including the major poetic works, “Mountain Poems” and “Gathas,” as well as his most illuminating instructional dharma talks, can be read in Red Pine’s superb translations.

With Red Pine’s personal discovery in 1991 of the site of Stonehouse’s former hut, this edition provides rare firsthand understanding of the spiritual and physical realm of Stonehouse’s era. The Zen Works of Stonehouse is one of the classic texts of Zen, essential for anyone interested in Zen practice and tradition.
