Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Playful, thoughtful, and important, the 28 poets found in The Wisdom Anthology of North American Buddhist Poetry offer innovations on traditional and time-honored Buddhist poetic forms.

This unique collection brings us African Americans reading the Black diaspora through the eyes of exiled Tibetan monks; Americans of Vietnamese and Tibetan heritage wrestling with the cultural norms of their parents or ancestors; Zen and Dada inspired performance pieces; and groundbreaking writings from the pioneers of the Beat movement, so many of whom remain not just relevant but vital to this day.

With its eclectic mix of acknowledged elders and newly emergent voices, this landmark anthology vividly displays how Buddhism is influencing the character of contemporary poetry.

Includes biographical notes and historical introduction by the editor, enhancing its value for workshop and classroom use.

Includes works by:
  • Diane di Prima
  • Lawrence Ferlinghetti
  • Norman Fischer
  • Sam Hamill
  • Jane Hirshfield
  • Mike O'Connor
  • Gary Snyder
  • Eliot Weinberger
  • Philip Whalen
  • Michael McClure
  • Leslie Scalapino
  • and more...
