Description
The incomparable poetry of Han Shan and his sidekick Shih Te, the rebel poets of the T'ang era (618907) who became icons of Chinese poetry and Zen, has long captured the imagination of poetry lovers and Zen aficionados. Popularized in the West by Beat Generation writers Gary Snyder and Jack Kerouac, these legendary figures are portrayed as the laughing, ragged pair who left their poetry on stones, trees, farmhouses, and the walls of the monasteries they visited. In the simplest verse but in a completely new tone, their poetry expressed the voice of ordinary people. Translator J.P. Seaton takes a fresh look at these captivating poets, along with Wang Fan-chih, another "outsider" poet who lived two centuries later and who captured the poverty and gritty day-to-day reality of the common people of his time.
