Unforgotten Dreams: Poems by the Zen Monk Shotetsu (Translations from the Asian Classics Series) by Steven D. Carter, Steven D. Carter, Steven D. Carter

This volume presents translations of over 200 poems by the master of The Way of Poetry, who is generally considered to be the last great poet of the classical uta form.

-[This is] a collection which captures and preserves something of what must have been the illuminating lyric contrast, the unexpected merging, which is of all poets. This fine edition comes with an introduction, a glossary, a source list and an index of the first lines of all the poetry included. -The Japan Times -These translations, along with Carter's earlier contributions to our understanding of Shotetsu, should lead other scholars and students to further intensive study of this great poet's work. -Edward Kamens -Yale University
