Mountain Poems of Stonehouse, The
Bill Porter (aka Red Pine)

Stonehouse was a fourteenth-century Buddhist monk who became a mountain hermit at the age of forty. His poems ring with beauty and clarity as they illuminate a life at the extremes of austerity and satisfaction, and in this revised bilingual Chinese-English edition, the award-winning translator Red Pine recovers Stonehouse's captivating spirit. Lighthearted and witty, devout and profound, The Mountain Poems of Stonehouse is a joy to read again and again.

"I love Stonehouse's heart," says Red Pine, and this love infuses his scholarship. His decades of immersion in Eastern art and philosophy inform his essential running commentaries as well as the revised preface.
