In Here and Now, the lucidity of Dunn's language makes his poems seem effortless. He animates the most quotidian details of domestic life with the sense of awe that characterizes each of his poems. In these poems, resignation, world-weariness, crudeness and self-deprecation coexist with ecstatic love, insight, humor, and sweetness. The most characteristic feature of a Dunn poem is its unpredictability - every line break is surprising. His poems are risky and original, revealing the otherworldliness of our familiar lives and the essential comedy of getting through the day. With a career that spans four decades and sixteen collections of poetry, Dunn's work still surprises

Examining inscriptions on landscape paintings and related documents, this book explores the views of the "two jewels" of Japanese Zen literature, Gido Shushin (1325-1388) and Zekkai Chushin (1336-1405), and their students. These monks played important roles as advisors to the shoguns Ashikaga Yoshimitsu (1358-1408) and Yoshimochi (1386-1428), as well as to major figures in various michi or Ways of linked verse, the No theatre, ink painting, rock gardens, and other arts. By applying images of mountain retreats to their busy urban lives in the capital, these Five Mountain Zen monks provoke reconsiderations of the relation between secular and sacred and nature and culture.
