BASHO THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH PDF

One bit that stood out to me was in regards to his next major project: Someone asked Porter about his next project, one that finally got him a Guggenheim last year, after seven failed applications. Having only read passages, which is a point of shame since it is only about 46 pages , I have had the pleasure of spending the evening reading it translated from the Japanese by Nobuyuki Yuasa and thought I would offer some thoughts on it. So are the years that pass by. Those who steer a boat across the sea, or drive a horse over the earth till they succumb to the weight of years, spend every minute of their loves traveling. There are a great number of ancients, too, who died on the road.

One bit that stood out to me was in regards to his next major project: Someone asked Porter about his next project, one that finally got him a Guggenheim last year, after seven failed applications.

So are the years that pass by. Those who steer a boat across the sea, or drive a horse over the earth till they succumb to the weight of years, spend every minute of their loves traveling.

There are a great number of ancients, too, who died on the road. I myself have been tempted for a long time by the cloud-moving wind — filled with a strong desire to wander 97, from the Penguin edition.

The gods seemed to have possessed my soul and turned it inside out, and roadside images seemed to invite me from every corner, so that it was impossible for me to stay idle at home Thus unable to resist the yearning of his heart he sets out for a three thousand mile journey that will take him across Japan, visiting shrines and sights that constitute the political, historical and artistic culture of the land. Along the way he converses with other poets, writes and leaves to the wind his own haikus.

Given translation some are obviously better than others. When a country is defeated, there remain only mountains and rivers, and a ruined castle in spring only grasses thrive.

The gods seemed to have possessed my soul and turned it inside out, and roadside images seemed to invite me from every corner, so that it was impossible for me to stay idle at home. Even while I was getting ready I was already dreaming of the full moon rising over the islands of Matsushima. It is a very charming book.
