About this Item

**Inscribed and signed by both the author and translator on the title page. Hardcover in As New condition.Probably the only printing.Beautifully designed pristine book. "The Wind from Vulture Park is a compelling reading. The translations of _waka_ which are given close readings are nothing short of breathtaking. They set a new standard for translation of japanese classical poetry, conveying, as they do, not only the semantic content (i.e., they are ' accurate') but also the compelling poetry of the poems. This in itself is an enormous contribution to the field and should inaugurate a new era in the translation of classical Japanese poetry." --- Laurel Rasplica Rodd, translator of "Kokinshu : A Collection of Poems.".
