Reviews

Born in 1939, influential and innovative, Gozo is widely known for his visual art and performances.
He became famous for his avant-garde work, which employs chance operations and other techniques, pushing Japanese poetry in radically new directions.
Gozo's poems often explore, like Basho's, moments in journeys that are at once physical and spiritual. His work sprawls, expanding and contracting like the universe.--Forrest Gander
