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.
