    The Tribute is translated here for the first time. Peter Haskel's introduction places Tosui in the context of the Japanese Zen of his period - a time when the identities of early modern Zen schools were still being formed and a period of spiritual crisis for many distinguished monks who believed that the authentic Zen transmission had long ceased to exist. Abiographical addendum offers a detailed overview of Tosui's life in light of surviving premodern sources.

    What makes Henry David Thoreau's Walden one of the fundamental benchmarks in the canon of American literature and philosophy? What role has the book played in the development of modern thought, and what relevance does it have for today's reader? Noted scholar Daniel G. Payne (SUNY, Oneonta) ponders these and other questions, and in the course of his meditation considers Henry Thoreau's influences and inspirations along with his biases and priorities.
