Description - Four Huts by Burton Watson

Four evocative literary works explore the joys of living a life of simplicity and solitude by four classical poet-writers. The short works collected in FOUR HUTS give voice to one of the most treasured aesthetic and spiritual ideals of Asia - that of a simple life lived in a simple dwelling. The texts were written between the ninth and the seventeenth centuries and convey each author's underlying sense of the world and what is to be valued in it.
