Sun At Midnight
Poems and Letters
W. S. Merwin

Out of print for two decades and reissued in this updated edition, Sun at Midnight is the first translation into English of the work of Muso Soseki, a Zen roshi of the fourteenth century and father of what we now think of as the Zen rock garden. These sublime translations reveal W.S. Merwin's own resources as a gardener; the heart of both his and Soseki's endeavors can be seen with clarity through these inspiring poems and letters. Intensely lyric and rich with the concrete details of sight, sound, and scent, deeply immersed in the great philosophical questions, the work is transformative and full-spectrum. From a telling smile and handshake in "the one wind" to "something beyond happiness / inside the gate / of this mountain," the infinity in a moment can be found everywhere.
