The Mountain Poems of Stonehouse Reviews
If I was on an island and could have only 3 books with me, this would be one of them--but this version only (rather than the reprint), by sheer force of the handsome production of this book from Empty Bowl Press. Long out of print, this hand-sewn version is remarkable to hold. If you can't spring for a used (rare) copy of this book, at least pick up the reprint, as the poems of Stonehouse are an amazing gift. Red Pine, as always, offers precise and deeply moving translations. I cannot imagine my life without Stonehouse, a little known Zen poet hermit. I ask that you not imagine yours without him too.
Fascinating snippets of mountain Zen. Stonehouse writes these as a mountain hermit in the twilight of his life, having retired from the formal Zen order only to become more Zen as he plants his wild garden and lets his white shock of hair grow long. Anti-materialist, anti-money nature poems. Something we could all appreciate. Extremely immediate. Translated successfully by Red Pine.
This collection of fourteenth century poet Stonehouse is a blessing. He writes his Mountain Poems for himself and yet for us all, finding peace in the humble living. Translator Red Pine provides a touching and insightful introduction and commentary along with the Chinese. It's one of those rare books that you know you will come back to and never give away except to someone you love. Stonehouse lived a humble life, moving from the monastery where he taught meditation to the monks, back into the Zen mountain hermitage where he felt most at home and taught us to be at home with our lives. Red Pine proves a brother to Stonehouse and to his readers.
This is a personal favorite of mine. I bought the original Empty Bowl Press, hand-bound edition in La Conner, Washington, back in 1987, and have carried it with me over the years. I peruse it regularly. It's provided precious direction for me, personally, in my own writing. It softly breathes the scent of pines and cool mountain breezes from its pages. The book is an alive experience, not an esoteric tome of musty old writings. It is a sweet bouquet for the night stand, a friendly companion on the road. I recommend it heartily to anyone who likes poetry or enjoys moving about in the natural world.
I know I'm getting a collection of my all time favorite books in my reviews but this little volume of poetry translated by Red Pine is exquisite, and I'm not a big fan of poetry. I read over these poems and they have a very calming effect on me. I guess I identify with the poet and the Zen quality of the poetry. I'm a big fan of Red Pine's translations and have four other of his translations. This edition which I have I think is out of print. It is hand bound. Lovely to hold and read.
I finally got around to finishing this one, and am glad to say it was well worth it. The poetry is simple and beautiful, and the translation and commentary is top notch. If you like the way that Eastern-style poetry feels, you should definitely add this one to your collection.
A terrific book.
