One robe, one bowl : the Zen poetry of Ryōkan by Ryōkan( Book )

19 editions published between 1977 and 2006 in English and Japanese and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hermit-monk Ryōkan, long beloved in Japan both for his poetry and for his character, belongs in the tradition of the great Zen eccentrics of China and Japan. His reclusive life and celebration of nature and the natural life also bring to mind his younger American contemporary, Thoreau. Ryōkan's poetry is that of the mature Zen master, its deceptive simplicity revealing an art that surpasses artifice. Although Ryōkan was born in eighteenth-century Japan, his extraordinary poems, capturing in a few luminous phrases both the beauty and the pathos of human life, reach far beyond time and place to touch the springs of humanity. -- From product description

A poet-priest of the late Edo period, Ryokan (1758-1831) was the most important Japanese poet of his age. This volume contains not only the largest English translation yet made of his principal poems, but also an introduction that sets the poetry in its historical and literary context and a biographical sketch of the poet himself. Originally published in 1981. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.

Ryokan is one of the most cherished figures of Zen and Japanese literature and, along with Basho, one of Zen writing's best-known figures. This is a collection of his poems, created by the man renowned for his beautiful verse and calligraphy, as well as his eccentricity of character
Great Fool : Zen master Ryōkan : poems, letters, and other writings by Ryōkan( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great Fool is the first study in a Western language to offer a comprehensive picture of the legendary poet-monk and his oeuvre. It includes not only an extensive collection of the master's kanshi, topically arranged to facilitate an appreciation of Ryokan's colorful world, but selections of his waka, essays, and letters. The volume also presents for the first time in English the Ryokan zenji kiwa (Curious Accounts of the Zen Master Ryokan), a firsthand source composed by a former student less than sixteen years after Ryokan's death. Consisting of anecdotes and episodes, sketches from Ryokan's everyday life, the Curious Accounts is invaluable for showing how Ryokan was understood and remembered by his contemporaries. To further assist the reader, three introductory essays approach Ryokan from the diverse perspectives of his personal history and literary work
