SUMMARY

Shisendo is an elegant hermit's retreat in Kyoto designed & built by the great poet Ishikawa Jozan (1583-1672). Renowned as one of Kyoto's loveliest & most intimate gardens, it has the tranquility & sad, soft beauty that was the aesthetic ideal of Jozan & his time. This unique book is an exciting collaboration among scholars of Jozan's poetry, his calligraphy, & his design prowess. In addition, it includes a richly imagined biography of Jozan, a detailed description of his garden & the architectural features of his retreat, & a new translation of Schuichi Kato's intriguing short story about Jozan. Illustrated with 16 full-color & 65 beautiful monochrome photographs of the garden & hermitage over the year's seasons, this book is a visual & intellectual treasure worthy of its subject.Rimer, J. Thomas is the author of 'Shisendo Hall of the Poetry Immortals', published 1991 under ISBN 9780834802414 and ISBN 0834802414.
