Summary
"A graphic novel portrait of the wild antics and legendary poetry of the "Laughing Pair"--Han Shan and Shih Te, two of China's greatest poets--Han Shan (known as "Cold Mountain") and Shih Te--who reportedly lived during the Tang dynasty (618-906 CE). They were critics of authority (both secular and religious) and champions of social justice who left their poetry on tree trunks and rocks. They were also reportedly monastics, drunks, cave dwellers, immortals, and many other wild and wondrous things. There is much delightful uncertainty about this "Laughing Pair"--including whether or not they actually existed. What is known is that the poetry attributed to them was greatly influential in both China and Japan, and to the Beat writers in the United States during the 1950s and '60s. Acclaimed manga creator Sean Michael Wilson has brought these renegade poets to life, showing the places they went and the philosophical and meditative aspects of their lives, as well as revealing their humor and wackiness and their penetrating insights into the human condition. Their poetry is interwoven throughout--translations by J. P. Seaton, one of the most respected tranlsators of Chinese poetry in the United States"--
