By Kenneth Rexroth

It is amazing that any Westerner—even so fantastic a poet as Kenneth Rexroth—could have captured in translation loads of the delicate essence of vintage jap poetry: the intensity of managed ardour, the austere splendor of fashion, the compressed richness of imagery.

The poems are drawn mainly from the conventional Manyoshu, Kokinshu and Hyakunin Isshu collections, yet there also are examplaes of haiku and different later kinds. The sound of the japanese texts i reproduced in Romaji script and the names of the poets within the calligraphy of Ukai Uchiyama. The translator's creation offers us easy historical past at the heritage and nature of eastern poetry, that's supplemented by means of notes at the person poets and an in depth bibliography.
