Heartland II : poets of the Midwest by Northern Illinois University( Book )

9 editions published between 1967 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Planning the book, I felt that one of its most important purposes would be to offer proof that what appears to many a colorless region is to some rich, complicated, thrilling. That, in short the Midwest is made up of the stuff of poetry. And once those living in it begin to see the details--cornfields, skyscrapers, small-town streets, whatever--with the help of their poets, they will find it not only possible to live with some measure of contentment among its particulars but even, miraculously, begin to love them and the poems they fill."--Introduction p. xxiii

Triumph of the sparrow : Zen poems of Shinkichi Takahashi by Shinkichi Takahashi( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shinkichi Takahashi is one of the truly great figures in world poetry. In the classic Zen tradition of economy, disciplined attention, and subtlety, Takahashi lucidly captures that which is contemporary in its problems and experiences, yet classic in its quest for unity with the Absolute. Lucien Stryk, Takahashi's fellow poet and close friend, here presents Takahashi's complete body of Zen poems in an English translation that conveys the grace and power of Takahashi's superb art. "A first-rate poet ... [Takahashi] springs out of some crack between ordinary worlds: that is, there is some genuine madness of the sort striven for in Zen."'Robert Bly; "We visit places in Takahashi that we once may have visited in a dream, or in a moment too startling to record the perception ... You need know nothing of Zen to become immersed in his work. You will inevitably know something of Zen when you emerge."'Jim Harrison, American Poetry Review
