FIRST & ONLY EDITION SCARCEThis excellent monograph covers the chronologicl survey ofSenryu, from Genroku to Meiji, Taisho, Showa, a Year of Sen-ryu, and subject matter of the Senryu, with full text inEnglish, Japanese characters & Romanized characters. Blythrightlyi claims Senryu as true poetry & truly representativeof the Japanese spirit. The whole of Japanese life is revea-led in these pages.Way cool. Reginald Horace Blyth isalways R A R E !****A very well written, readable set of books. The celebratedZen master D.T. Suzuki described Blyth as "one of the mosteminent exponents of Japanese culture."****ZEN AND HAIKU:Blyth's studies on Haiku, Japanese humor and Zen are "uniquecontributions towards East-West understanding." Blythlived & worked in the east 40 years, until his death in1964. The history of Zen is the history of moments. Itcannot be, like the history of ideas, or even the history ofthe freedom of thought, an account of development,systematization, criticism, modification, replacementand so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes,shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is noprogress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in thesense of being a list of names of great men in theattainment of great and so forth. Zen seems to become deepersometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but thereis no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history onlyin the sense of being a list of names of great men in theattainment of great Buddha-hood.*BLYTH'S CONTRIBUTION:Blyth lived and worked in the East for forty years, untilhis death in 1964 at the age of sixty-six. From the time ofhis internment in Japan during World War II, Blyth wroteassiduously. In the 1950's, his "ZEN IN ENGLISH LITERATURE"and "ORIENTAL CLASSICS" and "HAIKU" reached enthusiasticreaders in America and Europe. Aldous Huxley describesBlyth's work as "illuminating." As William J. Higginsonwrites in his "HAIKU HANDBOOK," thanks to Blyth "a newinterest in Japanese Haiku began to grow among poets of theimmediate post World War II generation.".Blyth's Contribution to cross-cultural understanding wasmanifold. In 1945, Blyth assumed a post as professor ofEnglish at Tokyo's Gakushuin University, the former Peers'School. For almost twenty years he tutored Crown PrinceAkihito, the present Emperor. Blyth played a leading role inEmperor Hirohito's historical declaration of January 1,1946, that he was a human being rather than a god. Blythedited numerous writings from English and Americanliterature, making them available to avid Japanese readers.****BIBLIOGRAPHY:*Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics, TheHokuseido Press, 1942 Haiku, 1949-1952, in four volumes:Vol.1: Eastern Culture.Vol.2: Spring.Vol.3: Summer-Autumn.Vol.4: Autumn-Winter.
