Basho's haikus are widely read and admired by poetry lovers in the Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches (Penguin Classics), Basho describes the beauty of nature that he experienced and observed while on his journey through Japan in this edition which has been translated by Nobuyuki Yuasa, Basho's haikus are accompanied with an introduction to the haibun style by Yuasa, which sees poetry and prose working side by side.

Simplicity is inherent in the poetry of Matsuo Basho. While writing this particular collection, he was a student of Zen Buddhism and had decided to travel through the country, getting away from the material world around him. What he sought was nature in its elemental form, wherein he could write and capture the true essence of nature in his work. He wrote of the four seasons and their change into the other and his words depict the way in which he was enlightened by the neutrality of it all. Simple things like the brightness of the moon and a waterfall served as Basho's inspiration and he produced words that would be read posthumously.

In the Narrow Road to the Deep North, it is not just poetry that is striking, it is the sense of serenity that is inherent in Basho's work. He tries to acquaint his readers with his notion of the transient beauty that he saw all around him. The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches (Penguin Classics), written by Matsuo Basho and translated by Nobuyuki Yuasa, was published by Penguin UK in 1967. This reprint edition is available in paperback.

"புறநானூற்றுப் பாக்கள் மன்னர்களின் கால வரிசைப்படியோ, தினை அடிப்படையிலோ, பாடிய புலவர்களின் வரிசைப்படியோ தொகுக்கப்படவில்லை. ஒரு மன்னனைப் பற்றிய பாடல்களும் கூடத் தொடர்ச்சியாக அமையாமல் அங்கொன்றும் இங்கொன்றுமாக அமைந்துள்ளன. இதனால் கற்போர்க்குத் துன்பம் உண்டாகிறது. இதனை உணர்ந்து அறிஞர் பெருந்தகை சாலமன் பாப்பையா அவர்கள் தமிழக வரலாற்றுப் புதையலான இந்நூலினை வரலாற்றுப் பார்வையிலும் இன்றைய வாழ்க்கைக்கு வழிகாட்டும் வகையிலும் வரிசைப்படுத்தியுள்ளார். இது புதுமையாகச் செய்ய வேண்டும் என்னும் நினைப்பில் எழுந்த பதிப்பன்று. புறநானூற்றுப் புரிந்துகொள்ள உதவ வேண்டும் என்னும் உயரிய நோக்கில் உருவான பதிப்பு." - முனைவர் தெ.ஞானசுந்தரன்

Natural Supernaturalism (Norton Library (Paperback))

Natural Supernaturalism (Norton Library (Paperback))

In this remarkable new book, M. H. Abrams definitively studies the Romantic Age (1789-1835)-the age in which Shelley claimed that "the literature of England has arisen as it were from a new birth." Abrams shows that the major poets of the age had in common important themes, modes of expression, and ways of feeling and imagining; that the writings of these poets were an integral part of a comprehensive intellectual tendency which manifested itself in philosophy as well as poetry, in England and in Germany; and that this tendency was causally related to drastic political and social changes of the age. But Abrams offers more than a work of scholarship, for he ranges before and after, to place the age in Western culture. he reveals what is traditional and what is revolutionary in the period, providing insights into those same two forces in the ideas of today. He shows that central Romantic ideas and forms of imagination were secularized versions of traditional theological concepts, imagery, and design, and that modern literature participates in the same process. Our comprehension of this age and of our own time is deepened by a work astonishing in its learning, vision, and humane understanding.

The Portable Jung (Portable Library)

This comprehensive collection of writings by the epoch-shaping Swiss psychoanalyst was edited by Joseph Campbell, himself the most famous of Jung's American followers. It comprises Jung's pioneering studies of the structure of the psyche—including the works that introduced such notions as the collective unconscious, the Shadow, Anima and Animus—as well as inquries into the psychology of spirituality and creativity, and Jung's influential "On Synchronicity," a paper whose implications extend from the I Ching to quantum physics. Campbell's introduction completes this compact volume, placing Jung's astonishingly wide-ranging oeuvre within the context of his life and times.

Why Look at Animals? (Penguin Great Ideas)

Why Look at Animals? (Penguin Great Ideas)

John Berger broke new ground with his penetrating writings on life, art and how we see the world around us. Here he explores how the ancient relationship between man and nature has been broken in the modern consumer age, with the animals that used to be at the centre of our existence now marginalized and reduced to spectacle. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Against Interpretation and Other Essays (Penguin Modern Classics)

Against Interpretation and Other Essays (Penguin Modern Classics)

A series of provocative discussions on everything from individual authors to contemporary religious thinking, Against Interpretation and Other Essays is the definitive collection of Susan Sontag's best known and important works published in Penguin Modern Classics.

Against Interpretation was Susan Sontag's first collection of essays and made her name as one of the most incisive thinkers of our time. Sontag was among the first critics to write about the intersection between 'high' and 'low' art forms, and to give them equal value as valid topics, shown here in her epoch-making pieces 'Notes on Camp' and 'Against Interpretation'. Here too are impassioned discussions of Sartre, Camus, Simone Weil, Godard, Beckett, Lévi-Strauss, science-fiction movies, psychoanalysis and contemporary religious thought. Originally published in 1966, this collection has never gone out of print and has been a major influence on generations of readers, and the field of cultural criticism, ever since.

Susan Sontag (1933-2004) was born in Manhattan and studied at the universities of Chicago, Harvard and Oxford. She is the author of four novels - The Benefactor, Death Kit, The Volcano Lover and In America, which won the 2000 US National Book Award for fiction - a collection of stories, several plays, and six books of essays, among them Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors. Her books are translated into thirty-two languages. In 2001 she was awarded the Jerusalem Prize for the body of her work, and in 2003 she received the Prince of Asturias Prize for Literature and the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade.
