The lake by Yasunari Kawabata( Book )

This story traces a man's sad pursuit of an unattainable perfection, a beauty out of reach, admired from a distance, unconsummated. Homeless, a fugitive from an ambiguous crime, his is an incurable longing that drives him to shadow nameless women in the street and hide in ditches as they pass above him. For their beauty is not of this world, but of a dream-the voice of a girl he meets in a Turkish bath is "an angel's," the figures of two students he follows seem to "glide over the green grass that hid their knees." Reality is the durable ugliness that is his constant companion and is symbolized in the grotesque deformity of the hero's feet. And it is the irreconcilable nature of these worlds that explains the strangely dehumanized, shadowy quality of the eroticism that pervades this novel
Sengai : master Zen painter by Shōkin Furuta( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sengai: Master Zen Painter is the portrait of a Japanese Zen priest of the mid-eighteenth century whose work embodies the essence of humor in the Zen tradition. Sengai was a Zen master with a profound insight into life, but more importantly he was able to express this insight in ink paintings and calligraphy that are replete with wisdom, simplicity, and humor." "Sengai is a revealing look at his entire life - from his childhood when he was placed in a Zen temple because of family financial difficulties to the time of his retirement as abbot of the historical Shofukuji temple. The focus is on the humor that characterizes not only his work but Zen itself, the symbolic representation of enlightenment in his work, and the lessons that he has to teach modern man." "For those interested in Zen, calligraphy, or art, Sengai is the fascinating story of how these disciplines can be fully integrated in the being of one remarkable man."--Jacket
