Feliks (dzerzhinsky) I thought for some time that this was a title printed by Penguin Classics. But I can't find it listed there, or anywhere. The author may be 'Li Bai'. But I've never pinned it down fully, and I want to make sure I have it in my 'Read' list.

Its a slim book of classic Chinese or Japanese (?) poetry, from some long-ago dynasty; and the cover features a drawing of mountains.

The title would be something like:

'The Mountain Way'
'The Mountain Path'
'The Narrow Path'
'The Narrow Mountain Way'
'The Narrow Mountain Path'

halp! :)

D.M. Dutcher  | 340 comments Basho wrote Japanese haiku combined with a travelogue called "Narrow Road to the Deep North." Or "The road to the interior." Li Bai is also known as Li Po, if it helps.


Feliks (dzerzhinsky) aha! That is it! My sincere thanks!
