This revised and expanded second edition includes, in addition to several other enhancements, 470 selections from Hagiwara’s poems, prose work and fragments from his notebooks. It has been designed to function as a one-volume handbook on the poet, with background information on his life and rough sketches of the terrain providing the context of his oeuvre. Sakutarô remained an ‘underground man’ for us all, says Richard Luecke in the foreword to the first edition,' bringing back from sojourns in hell new revelations and haunting music... It is a pleasure to commend a book that will convey "the father of modern Japanese poetry" to readers of English'.
