Book Overview
A beautiful translation of one of the most-loved classics of Japanese literature. Bashō (1644-1694)--a great luminary of Asian literature who elevated the haiku to an art form of utter simplicity and intense spiritual beauty--is renowned in the West as the author of Narrow Road to the Interior , a travel diary of linked prose and haiku recounting his journey through the far northern provinces of Japan. This edition features a masterful translation of this celebrated work. It also includes an insightful introduction by translator Sam Hamill detailing Bashō's life and the art of haiku, three other important works by Bashō-- Travelogue of Weather-Beaten Bones , The Knapsack Notebook , and Sarashina Travelogue --and two hundred and fifty of his finest haiku, making this the most complete single-volume collection of Bashō's writings. This book is part of the Shambhala Pocket Library series. The Shambhala Pocket Library is a collection of short, portable teachings from notable figures across religious traditions and classic texts. The covers in this series are rendered by Colorado artist Robert Spellman. The books in this collection distill the wisdom and heart of the work Shambhala Publications has published over 50 years into a compact format that is collectible, reader-friendly, and applicable to everyday life.
