About the Author
Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933) is one of Japan's most beloved writers and poets, known particularly for his sensitive and symbolist children's fiction.
Richard Wilbur on Runners: Runners is full of such engaging poems as 'Porches, ' 'Wood for Winter, ' and 'Witnesses.' In other places such as 'The Fallen' or 'Goat Castle, Natchez, ' there is some deftly conveyed frisson. And then there are admirable poems ('Ravens, ' 'Heron and Trout, ' 'Ending Up in Horse Creek Canyon') which are informed by a large and deep sense of participation in the whole of life. Gerald Hausman has put together a strong, subtle and varied collection.
