"These poems have magic."--Willis Barnstone, author of Sweetbitter Love: Poems of Sappho "Ko Un's work springs from a passionate dedication to the task of making whole again the narratives of the disrupted lives of Korea's people. No one has done more for what is coming gradually but ever more clearly to be recognized as Korea's literature of the twenty-first century."--David McCann, Director of the Korea Institute at Harvard University "Ko Un is a crucial poet for the twenty-first century and this is an enormously fresh and vivid translation."--Robert Hass

Back on the Fire

Following The Practice of the Wild, this new collection of essays by Gary Snyder blazes with insight. In his most autobiographical writing to date, these essays employ fire as a metaphor for the crucial moment when deeply held viewpoints yield to new experiences, and our spirits and minds broaden and mature. Snyder here writes and riffs on a wide range of topics, from explorations of southwestern European Paleolithic cave art to his own personal poetic history with haiku; from reminiscences of youthful West Coast logging and trail crew days to talks given in Paris and Tokyo on art and archetypes. He honors poets of his generation, like Philip Whalen and Allen Ginsberg, and meditates on art, labor, and the making of families, houses, and homesteads. This is a work that requires us to make friends with impermanence and error — to make "wildfire" a partner — and to keep burning the hazardous, the excess, and even one's own dreams and attainments, over and over again. The final impression is holistic: We perceive not a collection of essays, but a cohesive presentation of Snyder's life and work expressed in his characteristically straightforward prose.

I intend to offer the reading society and individuals varieties of pieces to ponder. This book captures (thoughts) only what my spoken words cannot. I believe that to obtain a balance in our minds and in our hearts we must explore the perimeters of our existence.From despair to happiness, we must look inside to inevitably know ourselves. Literature is a quiet language of its own, that must be manifest in books. We must cherish literature. The title: Sunday In The Body Of The Garden Of Tyme sums up a day in the life of the author that lasted twenty years. I assure you that he lived the research. Is it poetry? Useless montage? You decide. The subjects and ideas I represent are commonly grim or disconnected from hope. This book reveals my battles w/ in & out. I do favor traditional styles of poetry. However, I am somewhat idiomorphic w/ these small stories. I fear God and am constantly learning things from the least mundane to the most divine. True poetry never fills a page or a book -it forms a conscience far from the pages, far from our hands. I do wish that my readers find in this inaugural book: Humor, intellect, question and relevence -for these are scripts that we may all relate to in one way or another.
