Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0942668049, Paperback)

Poetry. Asian Studies. Translated from the Japanese by Robert Epp. Selected for the UNESCO Collection of Representative Works. Winner of the Yomiuri Prize in 1966. Kinoshita Yuji (1903-1965)was born in the small provincial town of Miyuki, near Hiroshima, where he worked for many years as a pharmacist, despite an early passion for French literature. A perfectionist who wrote fewer than 400 poems, his crisp, vivid imagery often expresses the tension between his rural life and his urge to be a sophisticated modern and urban poet. Preface by Ooka Makoto.
