    DescriptionStonehouse has been called 'the greatest of all Zen monks who made poetry their medium of instruction'. Until now his works have rarely been available in English. Now all of the hermit monk's poetry, including his major poetic works, 'Mountain Poems' and 'Gathas', as well as his most illuminating instructional talks (delivered while serving at imperial request as abbot of a Zen monastery), can be read in red Pine's superb translations.
