    Although best known for his Zen discourses and his role establishing Zen practice in Japan, Dogen was an excellent poet too. Quiet moments of insight expressed in a bare minimum of lines. One of my favorites.

    A rich survey of the poem's of Japan's most famous monk. Heine's analysis is impressive and draws out the connections between Dogen's Shobogenzo and his poetry in an effortless manner. I am not sold on the organization, however, which might have benefitted from shorter, more frequent chapter divisions. A rich survey of the poem's of Japan's most famous monk.
