San Francisco. 1970. Four Seasons Foundation. 1st Of This Particular Edition. Previous Owner's Name Penned In Front, Otherwise Very Good In Wrappers. 44 pages. paperback. 0877040036. keywords: Poetry America Nature. inventory # 24558. FROM THE PUBLISHER - During the period between 1956 and 1969, Gary Snyder went back and forth between California and Japan, studying Zen, working on translations with Ruth Fuller Sasaki, and finally living for a while with a group of other people on the small, volcanic island of Suwanosejima. His previous study of written Chinese assisted his immersion in the Zen tradition (with its roots in Tang Dynasty China) and enabled him to take on certain professional projects while he was living in Japan. Snyder received the Zen precepts and a dharma name (Chofu, ‘Listen to the Wind’), and lived sometimes as a de facto monk, but never registered to become a priest and planned eventually to return to the United States to 'turn the wheel of the dharma'. He was married from 1960 to 1965 to Joanne Kyger, who lived with him in Japan. During this time, he published a collection of his poems from the early to mid '50s, MYTHS & TEXTS (1960), and SIX SECTIONS FROM MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS WITHOUT END (1965). This last was the beginning of a project that he was to continue working on until the late 1990s. Much of Snyder's poetry expresses experiences, environments, and insights involved with the work he has done for a living: logger, fire-lookout, steam-freighter crew, translator, carpenter, and itinerant poet, among other things.
