Comment: This is actually a brand new copy of this $160 title, but slightly "hurt". At some point, the book was closed improperly, and the top corners of pages 401-410 bent back, leaving creases on the corners, visible from the top edge. Pages 333-338 also slightly affected similarly, more slightly visible from the top edge, but appearing more as rounded corners than creases internally. Other than these page corners, the book is pristine, and we are offering it at half-list.

Format: Paperback
Translated with an introduction by award-winning translator Hiroaki Sato, Japanese Women Poets is an anthology of Japanese women's poetry from the earliest folk songs to the 7th century up through the close of World War II. The translations include extensive notes that explain subtle references, such as "knowing what fine feelings are" as an allusion to a tale in which having children is equated with the development of fine feelings such as compassion. A handful of black-and-white illustrations grace this "must-have" addition to international poetry shelves. Highly recommended.
