Through its linguistic artistry and its philosophical subtlety, the Shobogenzo presents a thorough recasting of Buddhism with a creative ingenuity that has never been matched in the subsequent literature of Japanese Zen. With this translation of thirteen of the ninety-five essays, Thomas Cleary, a longtime resident of Japan and lecturer in Oriental thought and religion, attempts to convey the form as well as the content of Dogens writing, thereby preserving the instrumental structure of the original text. Together with pertinent commentary, biography, and notes, these essays make accessible to a wider audience a Zen classic once considered the private preserve of Soto monks and Buddhologists. Readers from many fields in the sciences and humanities will find themselves richly rewarded.
