The breadth Blyth displays in Zen in English Literature and the Oriental Classics is increasingly becoming a necessity as globalization . I gave away my copy and now regret that gift.
The breadth Blyth displays in Zen in English Literature and the Oriental Classics is increasingly becoming a necessity as globalization continues to thrust disparate cultures into one another's arms. The ability to communicate with each other is now a necessity, not a luxury. Blyth, however, anticipated the coming interconnection of East and West and set up a dialogue between the classics of both worlds, fostering mutual understanding, that the Orient and the Occident may be less (forgive the pun) Zenophobic.
This is a remarkable book. With a personal library of some three thousand books, I have found Blyth's Zen in English Literature & Oriental Classics the most valuable, the most inspiring, and the most revealing. A tour of English literature and its relationship to Zen. It highlights the literature with wonderful insight. Am currently rereading it and getting additional insights. Blyth declares religion to be poetry, and poetry to be religion. But that statement is, like all, inadequate. Others have praised this book highly.
Zen in English Literature embraces the literature of Zen in Chinese and Japanese, the Chinese and Japanese Classics . Over 14 million journal, magazine, and newspaper articles.
Zen in English Literature embraces the literature of Zen in Chinese and Japanese, the Chinese and Japanese Classics, and the whole extent of English Literature, with numerous quotations from German, French, Italian and Spanish Literatures.
