In the introduction to “New Selected Poems” Shuntaro Tanikawa is described as a “poetic volcano,” but a volcano, like the proverbial hedgehog, only does one big thing; Tanikawa offers something new in every book.

“New Selected Poems” draws on more than 60 years of work, from the disarming enthusiasm of his first collection “Two Billion Light-Years of Solitude” (1952) to the muted and introspective “Kokoro” (2013), inviting us to seek the poet in the flow of reinvention itself.
