Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: mild rubbing and faint, but pervasive soiling-or perhaps toning-the the white background field of the wrapper covers; the pages are not exactly tanned, but are no longer as bright as the must have been when the book was new; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean. Structurally sound and tightly bound, showing only minor wear: clean, sturdy, presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 120pp. First Edition Thus, Second Printing. Trade Paperback. Rexroth must be praised for two reasons. One: his translations are razor sharp (in the Japanese style), yet retain all the profundity and the humanity of the poem. And two: the selections are excellent. For all poetry lovers, and indeed for all poetry non-lovers, this is THE collection. You can't go wrong with Rexroth. Rexroth's brilliant translations, though at times very liberal, do much better at expressing the real meat of each poem than do more traditional, academic translations steeped in dated language. His other translated collections of Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Greek poetry are equally beautiful.
