Reviews

Lucid and engaging, this translation, a gift of careful attention, does not separate poetry from spiritual practice. Basho becomes our guide on the way of insight. Such is the magic for a fine translation. --Margaret Gibson, Tricycle Sam Hamill achieves a kind of luminosity of language that I find unparalleled in other translations. --Burton Watson
