Bought this as a present for my boyfriend. He is a Japanese Zen Buddhist and he absolutely loves this book. I find the translation myself very easy to understand and the poems are very beautiful. This is a must buy!!

Ryokan was an intriguing character who truly lived Zen. His poetry reflects this - his carefree love of life, his love of nature and the simple things in life. I must admit that I do prefer some of the translations offered in One Robe, One Bowl (translated by the same person), but this book is still worth 5 stars as it is full of wonderful poetry!

A nicely produced book, and the poems are great, but there aren't many of them, and the introduction is very short, and not very helpful.

A shame but I couldn't get excited about any of these poems, they seemed sentimental and without that sharp jab one gets from so much else in Japanese poetry.
