If you are interested in Eastern philosophy, particularly Daoism, and its relationship to the artist's way, this book will provide you with solid scholarly material to ponder.
The 29 page glossary reveals Qiu's linguistic prowess and is extremely helpful both for reading this book and for studying Chinese or Japanese poetry, especially haiku.
I wasn't sure if I should spend the $63.00 for this book but it provided me with a deep and thorough study of Basho and the religious and philosophical underpinnings to his creative genius.
