Rexroth translations

One of my favorite poets is Kenneth Rexroth and some of my favorite poems among his work are his translations from the Chinese and Japanese. For National Poetry Month New Directions has issued two new, handsome, pocket-size editions containing a selection of these translations, Songs of Love, Moon, and Wind and Written on the Sky. Both are perfect to carry with you about town.
