Read The Narrow Road to the Deep North, and Other Travel Sketches by Bashō Matsuo. A serious student of Zen Buddhism and composer of haiku in Edo Japan of the 17th century, Bashō sets off on a journey designed to strip away the trappings of the material world and bring spiritual enlightenment. These travel writings not only chronicle Bashō's perilous journeys through Japan but also capture his vision of eternity in the transient world around him.
