Zen Poetry ~ Shinkichi Takahashi and others


Jointly translated by a Japanese scholar and an American poet is The Penguin Book of Zen Poetry the largest and most comprehensive collection of its kind to appear in English. It spans 1500 years – from the early T’ang dynasty to the present day – and offers Zen poetry in all its diversity: Chinese poems of enlightenment and health, poems of the Japanese masters and many haiku, the quintessential Zen art. Japan’s contemporary Zen poet, Shinkichi Takahashi, is also well represented and the volume contains many poems never before rendered into English, as well as numerous examples of Zen painting.

The Penguin Book of Zen Poetry which was described by one reviewer as a truly original and outstanding work, has won The Islands and Continents Translation Award and The Society of Midland Authors Poetry Award. This book is edited and translated by Luzien Stryk and Takashi Ikemoto with an Introduction by Lucien Stryk
