Master Dôgen (1200-1252), founder of the Sôtô school of Japanese Zen and author of Shôbôgenzô, is also a monk-poet whose talent is expressed in the collection of waka entitled Sanshô-Dôei, literally "Praise of the Way at the Summit of the Umbrella Pine”. In this work, Dôgen expresses another facet of his personality, his secret garden, where you can feel a uniquely Japanese sensibility and the influence of the traditional Shintô religion. This reference work presents a complete and commented translation of all of these poems as well as an introduction to the links between Zen and poetry. An enlightening stylistic study gives access to a finer understanding of this poetic universe. Yoko Orimo is the translator of Shôbôgenzô (complete bilingual edition in 2019) for which she received a medal from the Académie des Belles-Lettres in 2020, as well as the special prize for translation from the Konishi Foundation in 2021. She is also the author of Like the moon in the middle of the water, prefaced by Christian Bobin.
