Ryokan (1758-1831) was a Zen monk, poet, master calligrapher, and hermit. He is one of the most beloved peots of Japan.
Just as Ryokan's life is inseparable from his poetry, the translation's clarity of diction is inseparable from the sensitive brushwork on each page. A book to be gazed into again and again.-Charlotte Mandel, Small Press
