Poetry. Asian Studies. Translated by Larry Smith and Mei Hui Liu Huang. One hundred poems by Japan's great poet Taigu Ryokan (1758-1831) included in English, original Chinese, and in Japanese, translated by poets Mei Hui Liu Huang and Larry Smith. With an introduction, "Taigu Ryokan: Great Fool," by Larry Smith. "These poems, wise and direct, have been rightly treasured for centuries because of the way they expand the mind and refresh the spirit. That is their nature in their original language, and Smith and Huang have managed, with great care and affection, to recreate that nature in English"--David Young, poet and translator.
