Boek Narrow Road to the Interior and other Writings - Matsuo Basho (vertaald door Sam Hamill) (B-010-1-177)
Here is the most complete single-volume collection of the writings of one of the great luminaries of Asian literature. Basho (1644-1694) - who elevated the haiku to an art form of utter simplicity and intense spirital beauty is best known in the West as the author that recounts his journey through the far nothern provinces of Japan. This volume includes a masterful translation of this celebrated work along with three other less well-known but important works by Basho: Travelogue of Weather-Beaten Bones, The Knapsack Notebook, and Sarashina Travelogue. There is also a selection of over 250 of Basho's finest haiku. In addition, the translator has provided an introduction detailing Basho's life and work and an essay on the art of haiku.
