on sarinagara

I came across with this phrase which means “and yet” in Japanese via a book called Sarinaga by Phillipe Forest. That book really impressed me. He named the book after an haiku by Kobayashi Issa:

the world of dew is 

the world of dew

and yet, and yet.

Really, read the book here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Sarinagara-Philippe-Forest/dp/1562791346
