It is extraordinary that any Westerner—even so tremendous a poet as Kenneth Rexroth—could have captured in translation loads of the sophisticated essence of vintage eastern poetry: the intensity of managed ardour, the austere beauty of fashion, the compressed richness of imagery.

The poems are drawn mainly from the conventional Manyoshu, Kokinshu and Hyakunin Isshu collections, yet there also are examplaes of haiku and different later kinds. The sound of the japanese texts i reproduced in Romaji script and the names of the poets within the calligraphy of Ukai Uchiyama. The translator's advent supplies us uncomplicated history at the historical past and nature of jap poetry, that is supplemented by way of notes at the person poets and an intensive bibliography.
