Daily Zen Library
Sun At Midnight – Poems and Sermons of Muso Soseki
Author: Soiku Shigematsu, W. S. Merwin
Long out of print, this reissue is the first translation into English of the work of Muso Soseki, the thirteenth-century Zen roshi and founder of the rock garden. A gorgeous introduction by co-translator W.S. Merwin sets the stage for 130 poems and six letters to the Emperor that combine delicacy and lightness with penetrating plainness. Essential for poets, gardeners, and students of Zen.
