Summary
One of the best scholar-translators in the field presents a selection of writings by Tonna (1289--1372), an outstanding medieval Buddhist poet-monk, very little of whose work has been translated until now. Tonna was regarded as the leading Nijo ̄ poet of his day and was known as one of the Four Deva Kings of the Waka. This anthology contains translations of 134 uta, 16 linked-verse couplets, and selections from a prose narrative, From a Frog at the Bottom of a Well, along with an introduction and explanatory notes, a glossary of important names and places, and a list of sources
