Book DescriptionThe appreciation of Zen philosophy and art has become universal, and Zen poetry, with its simple expression of direct, intuitive insight and sudden enlightenment, appeals to lovers of poetry, spirituality, and beauty everywhere. This collection of translations of the classical Zen poets of China, Japan and Korea includes the work of Zen practioners and monks as well as scholars, artists, travellers and recluses, and covers fifteen centuries of Oriental literature with poets ranging from Xie Lingyun (5th century) through Wang Wei and Hanshan (8th century) and Yang Wan-li (12th century) to Shinkei (15th) Basho (17th) and Ryokan (19th).

UK Kirkus Review » Presenting the most transparent Zen poetry within a nicely compact Hardback format, Zen Poems is pleasingly meditative and anti-intellectual - and set within a recognizably Japanese landscape of moon, mountains, tress, clouds, weather and the seasons. While the book plays down the more rarefied and challenging paradoxes of Zen belief, repeated readings reveal more than at first meets the eye. Essentially, this is nature poetry, all the more effective for the sparseness of its imagery. (Kirkus UK)
