LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Berkeley.: Stone Bridge Press.. (c.1996).. Translated from the Japanese with Annotations by Hiroaki Sato. 186pp, index of poets, paperback. "Basho (1644-94) is considered Japan's greatest haiku poet. Narrow Road to the Interior (Oku no Hosomichi) is his masterpiece. Ostensibly a chronological account of the poet's five-month journey in 1689 into the deep north and west of the old capital, Edo, the work is in fact artful and carefully sculpted, rich in literary and Zen allusion and filled with great insights and vital rhythms. In this lavishly annotated volume, poet and translator Sato presents the complete work in English and examines the threads of history, geography, philosophy, and literature that are woven into Basho's exposition. He details in particular the extent to which Basho relied on the community of writers with whom he traveled and joined in linked-verse (renga) poetry sessions, an example of which, A Farewell Gift to Sora, is included in this volume."
