Gary Snyder is considered one of the greatest American poets of the 20th century and a key figure of the Beat generation. Stylistically situated somewhere between Tu Fu and Thoreau, his innovative poetry has been influential across the world. This 50th anniversary edition reprints and celebrates Gary Snyder's first ever book of poems, Riprap, published in Japan in 1959 by Origin Press. It also includes Snyder's translations of Han Shan's Cold Mountain Poems, arguably one of the finest translations of that remarkable poet ever made into the English language.
