Cold Mountain Poems

ZEN Poems of Han Shan, Shih-TE, and Wang Fan-Chih

annotated ed

€ 20.95

Popularized in the West by Beat Generation writers Gary Snyder and Jack Kerouac, China's 'outsider' poets Han Shan (known as Cold Mountain) and his sidekick Shi-Te, who lived in the T'ang era (618-907), have long captured the imagination of poetry lovers and Zen aficionados. These legendary figures of Chinese literature and Zen-portrayed as the laughing, ragged pair who left their poetry on stones, trees, farmhouses, and the walls of the monasteries they visited and then disappeared into a cave forever-expressed in the simplest verse but in a completely new tone, the voice of ordinary people. In "Cold Mountain Poems", the premier translator J. P. Seaton takes a fresh look at these captivating poets, along with Wang Fan-chih, another outsider poet who lived a couple of centuries later and who captured the poverty and gritty day-to-day reality of the common people of his time. "Cold Mountain Poems" is a vibrant, wide-ranging collection that will immediately resonate for the contemporary reader. Seaton is a live ly commentator and his comprehensive introduction and notes throughout give a fascinating context to this collection.
