About the Author:

Kenneth Rexroth (1905-1982) was one of the world's great literary minds. In addition to being a poet, translator, essaysist and teacher, he helped found the San Francisco Poetry Center and influenced generations of readers with his Classics Revisted series.

Review:

By turns revolutionary and conservative, simultaneously spiritual and worldly, Asian and Western, Kenneth Rexroth created what must surely be regarded as the most original synthesis of transcendent metaphysical and erotic verse ever written by an American poet.... He achieved something almost impossibly simple--a glimpse of sacramental grace within our temporal flesh in a fragile, perishing world. -- From the introduction
