“Here is a breathtaking millennium of Buddhist poet-monks.”—Inquiring Mind

THE CLOUDS SHOULD KNOW ME BY NOW

Buddhist Poet Monks of China

Mike O’Connor Red Pine Andrew Schelling

This unique collection presents the verse, much of it translated for the first time, of fourteen eminent Chinese Buddhist poet monks. Featuring the original Chinese as well as english translations and historical introductions by Burton Watson, J.P. Seaton, Paul Hansen, James Sanford, and the editors, this book provides an appreciation and understanding of this elegant and traditional expression of spirituality.

“So take a walk with…these cranky, melancholy, lonely, mischievous poet-ancestors. Their songs are stout as a pilgrim’s stave or a pair of good shoes, and were meant to be taken on the great journey.”—Andrew Schelling, from his Introduction
