--Nandai (1786-1817) 南台, Japanese poet. This is the translation of Yoel Hoffman in Japanese Death Poems (1986). Professor Hoffman says that in Japan there is a tradition of writing a poem, jisei 辞世 [farewell to the world] at the moment of death.
I am not sure of the correct transcription of the Japanese. If you have a copy of the original poem, could you let me know?
