Product Description

One of the most important poets of contemporary Japan, Makoto Ooka's works continue to resonate powerfully among readers today. He speaks to the spirit, not of Japan and the Japanese, but of humanity, and of the world we are a part of. This new edition brings together some of his best work in English translation by Janine Beichman, who worked with Ooka for many years. Also included are the original Japanese poems, the author's own calligraphy and drafts, and selected photographs from his personal life... a book to be savored for a depth and beauty that surpasses any single cultural identity.
