Archipelago
Arthur Sze

By turns, spiritual and creative, meditative and active, Archipelago draws upon both Buddhist and Native American art and culture and is inspired by the Zen garden at Ryoanji. The fifteen poems, like stones set in a sea of raked gravel, are seen only within the context of a larger interdependence. Winner of the 1996 American Book Award in Poetry.

For Archipelago, Arthur Sze

"Sze's fifth collection translates the poet's spiritual quest into memorable imagery."—Library Journal

"There are very few books of poetry that hold such a variety of passion… for language, texture, ideas, morals, suffering, conflicts, and for the world's beauty—in such compassionate and graceful form."—The Bloomsbury Review
