Abstract:

This collection gathers the essays, travel journals, letters, poems, and translations of one of the influential voices of the twentieth century. The author has been a cultural force in America for five decades, prizewinning poet, environmental activist, Zen Buddhist, Earth householder, and reluctant counterculture guru. Having expanded far beyond the Beat scene that first brought his work to the public ear and eye, he has produced a broad ranging body of work that encompasses his fluency in Eastern literature and culture, his commitment to the environment, and his concepts of humanity's place in the cosmos.
