Poetry. Asian Studies. Translated from the Japanese by Christopher Drake, Robert Brady, Odagawa Kazuko, Eric Selland, William I. Elliott and Kawamura Kazuo. This anthology contains the books of five poets--Fujii Sadakazu, Hirata Toshiko, Matsuura Hisaki, Yoshida Fuminori, Inagawa Masato--who emerged in the 1970's and 1980's as the voice of a new tradition--asserting an individual voice against the tide of "masu komi" media expression that has created a psychological and spiritual void in today's Japan.
