The voices of 14 eminent Chinese poet monks whose works span 12 centuries (AD 700-1900) are here presented both in the original Chinese and English translation. The collection includes 136 poems and is divided into 6 sections with translators' introductions to each poet and his work.

It includes the works of Chia Tao, Ch`i-Chi, Chih Yuan, Han Shan Te-ching, Shih-shu, and Ching-An.

"So take a walk with these cranky, melancholy, lonely, msichievous poet-ancestors. Their songs are stout as a pilgrim`s stave or a pair of good shoes and were meant to be taken on the great journey."Andrew Schelling.

"These Zen monks, writing between the T`ang Dynasty and the early 20th century, and until now virtually unknown in the West, are among the exemplars of one of the world`s richest and most influential literary traditions. The poems, translated by some of the most knowledgeable and talented scholars anywhere, are luminous and elegant in their simplicity, resonating with the wisdom of sages. This is an indispensible book." Sam Hamill.
