COLD MOUNTAIN Transcendental Poetry

by Wandering Poet

COLD MOUNTAIN Transcendental Poetry Synopsis

COLD MOUNTAIN Transcendental Poetry is a revised and expanded edition containing 77 original translations of poems by the T'ang Zen poet, Han-Shan. The introduction includes a brief biography of the poet, taken from the poems themselves. The poems were found written on rocks and trees in a remote, mountainous region on the China coast south of Shanghai and Hangchou. They tell the story of a gentle recluse who lived in a cave and foraged for food. Though simple and childlike, the poems are majestic and have the power to lift the reader to share a moment in the poet's heaven. These translations are as accurate and close to the originals as I can make them. And they are close to the heart of Cold Mountain. Each has been carefully translated and polished. I hope you enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed the process of bringing them to you. Wandering Poet
