Reviews

"There is something so otherworldly and beautiful about Japanese poetry, but especially Japanese poetry about death...poetry and prose regarding death, dreams, and memories have an extra weight and heft to them, whilst still being able to maintain an ethereal, dreamy, nostalgic, cozy warm delivery in their thematic idea exploration." -Traveling Book Nerds
"A wonderful introduction to the Japanese tradition of jisei, this volume is crammed with exquisite, spontaneous verse and pithy, often hilarious, descriptions of the eccentric and committed monastics who wrote the poems."-Tricycle: The Buddhist Review
