Summary:
The Narrow Road to the Interior uses the journey as a metaphor for life. Basho’s observations on his journey to the interior stunningly juxtapose the aesthetic with the spiritual in nature.

Comments:
“Students particularly identify with the journey motif, one they recognize from “road” films and the like. They can pick out the essence of a haiku after reading this.” – SunHee Gertz, Professor of English, Clark University
