The Haiku Seasons
Poetry of the Natural World (Out of Print)
THIS TITLE IS OUT OF PRINT
Introduces haiku and its many varieties with explanations and examples: history, meaning, connection with nature, plus examples from around the world to show seasonal and non-seasonal forms. An important work now back in print, by an established expert.
"I read The Haiku Seasons with great pleasure—a really fine book."
—Haruo Shirane, author of The Bridge of Dreams
"In a wonderfully lucid way, The Haiku Seasons presents the historical and modern Japanese usage of seasonal themes in poetry. It shows, as nothing else in the literature has done, the growing dialogue between poets in Japan and other countries. An extremely valuable work!"
—Elizabeth Searle Lamb, retired editor of Frogpond
