Gozo Yoshimasu

Gozo Yoshimasu Born in Tokyo in 1939, Gozo Yoshimasu has orbited post-war Japanese poetry since the publication of his first book Departure in 1964. Moving through unexplored regions with over thirty collections of poetry and prose, which include Devil's Wind, A thousand Steps and Osiris, God of Stone, Yoshimasu overturns daily language through the art of soku-zuke, a form of renga or linked verse.

"My body, was, wrapped, in, a light blood color.
  Where, I was, walking, I've, already, forgotten."

As a leading literary critic wrote:
"To think about Yoshimasu is to think about change."

Gozo Yoshimasu lives in Tokyo.
