Basho's Narrow Road reviewed at Reader Views

Basho's Narrow Road: Spring and Autumn Passages, the elegant Stone Bridge Press edition of "Narrow Road to the Interior" and the renga sequence, "A Farewell Gift to Sora," both by Matsuo Basho, was recently reviewed at Reader Views. From the review:

"Without the annotations, I would have enjoyed Basho’s story, but I would not have understood much of what was written...a beautiful story about Basho’s travels...the beauty of the countryside and the spirit of the people that he encounters."
