Publisher Description

A critically-acclaimed Japanese poet and translator reveals his life story in captivating verse.
 
Acclaimed Japanese poet Yorifumi Yaguchi has turned his literary focus to his own experiences as a child growing up on the island of Honshu in the late 1930s and ’40s. When life became incomprehensible, Yaguchi put those experiences into poems. His audience grew beyond Japan—and included Robert Bly, Denise Levertov, and William Stafford, who soon became his friends.
 
Recognized in Japan as a major poet and also as an outspoken advocate for peace, Yaguchi’s Wing-Beaten Air uses his extraordinary voice to tell his life story in prose and poetry.
