Poetry. Asian Studies. Translated from the Japanese by Richard Arno and others. Anyone who has ever heard the extraordinary Yoshimasu Gozo's mesmerizing readings will never forget him. Yoshimasu breaks away from linear pseudorealism to offer a range of alternative voices and models which challenge our postmodernist passivity--"souls running/running genealogy of a scream/this hell/I confess precisely/from Shinjuku to Kanda/when this paper touches air it burns." "It cuts suddenly like a searchlight, which, turning, reveals some of pride-hungry postwar Japan's most seductive fantasies"--from the introduction by Iijima Koichi.
