Product Details

Praise

“A short, indispensable collection of sometimes crushingly sad poems from a Japanese master, expertly translated. Ignoring Hagiwara is like ignoring Eliot, except maybe worse.” —Flavorwire

“Sakutarō Hagiwara is the ultimate modern Japanese poet–the first to perfect the use of colloquial language as a medium for poetic expression. Always rhythmic, his poetry represents a scintillating verbal and spiritual adventure, particularly in the lucid and elegant translations created
by Hiroaki Sato.” —J. Thomas Rimer

“Sakutarō Hagiwara is not just the most influential poet of his generation–his body of radically expressive work inspires the most innovative Japanese poets writing today. He is the big cheese, and Hiroaki Sato, the master translator, has the gifts necessary to render his incomparably sharp taste.”   —Forrest Gander
