Overview

This anthology, jointly translated by a Japanese scholar and an American poet, is the largest and most comprehensive collection of its kind to appear in English. Their collaboration has rendered translations both precise and sublime, and their selection, which span 1,500 years, from the early T’ang dynasty to the present day, includes many poems that have never before been translated into English. Stryk and Ikemoto offer us Zen poetry in all its diversity: Chinese poems of enlightenment and death, poems of the Japanese masters, many haiku — the quintessential Zen art — and an impressive selection of poems by Shinkichi Takahashi, Japan’s greatest contemporary Zen poet. With Zen Poetry, Lucien Stryk and Takashi Ikemoto have graced us with a compellingly beautiful collection, which in their translations is pure literary pleasure, illuminating the world vision to which these poems give permanent expression.

*Walks in, tired, with the outsider's blue blood splattered on his labcoat.* "Everyone seems in a fantastic mood," He says, sarcastically. "Anyone have a napkin?"

The Marksman silently walked in. He wore a hood and protective suit (just like from destiny.)

This was okay. It wasn't worth the money though. I wish I could sell it. I really didn't like it. It was a bit confusing at times. Also, the book was very short and not entertaing, fascinating, or what I expected. I WOULD NOT RECOMED THIS.
