The Golden Blade 1984 Work and Worklessness

The Golden Blade 1984
Work and Worklessness
Japan and the West

Edited by Adam Bittleston and Daniel Jones

Ten people, with wildly varying occupations, describe what their work means to them, or has meant in the past. They include an eurythmist, an actor, a research worker, a dustman, a plumber, a priest and a cook. Two other people write about the value of work in general for a human being, and how through a true vocation something like an inner Sun dawns in the soul.

Within a small compass, an attempt is made to give a picture of the great cultural traditions of Japan, and her present place in the world. Twenty-seven of the greatest haiku are included, understandingly translated by Dr R H Blyth.
