A bilingual Japanese-English presentation of Shuri Kido's
poetry, co-translated by Pulitzer prize-winner Forrest Gander
Shuri Kido, known as the "far north poet," is one of the
most influential contemporary poets in Japan. Names and Rivers brings the poems
of Shuri Kido to readers in North America for the first time, thanks to star
translator team Tomoyuki Endo and Pulitzer Prize winner Forrest Gander. Drawing
influence from Japanese culture and geography, Buddhist teachings, and
modernist poets, Kido presents a mesmerizing view of the world and our human
position in it. This is a world "that isn't ours"-where the trees are sirens
while the people are silent, where snow lingers while language crumbles. Names
and Rivers is made of crossings, questionings, and mysteries as unanswered and
open as the sky. Bilingual Japanese-English production.
