    1. Jeffrey Bumiller says:

      Pefect for autumn Wonderful and exhaustive overview of the Haiku

    2. Parrish Lantern says:

      To most people haiku is a three line poem, following a 5 7 5 syllable formula, but Stephen Addiss argues that this does no than prick the surface of this fascinating poetic form He goes on to state that, rather than constrain with rigid definitions, it may be useful to discuss guidelines that the majority of haiku follow Haiku in Japan are generally written or printed in a single column Nevertheless, until the twentieth century, most traditional Japanese haiku fell into the 5 7 5 formula, alth [...]

    3. Nicholas Klacsanzky says:

      My favorite haiku book to date, as it covers a comprehensive history of haiku, haiku painting haiga , tanka, waka, and supplies great examples of haiku by the great masters throughout its history I keep reading it over and over again for inspiration and knowledge.

    4. Peter Crofts says:

      Probably the best starting point for an English treatment of Haiku out there In fact, not only is it a great sourcebook for the most famous haiku and practitioners, it spends a significant amount of time providing and talking about the poetic forms out of which haiku evolved The chapter introducing tanka poetry is highly valuable in itself There are also 20 odd pages of picture of famous haiga, the scroll paintings which some poets created to contain poetry within suggestive visual elements All [...]

    5. Nick says:

      A book that gets the balance right lots of haiku, with just enough exegesis The book also makes the point that a good deal of haiku needs to be understood in the context of its calligraphy and art, with pictures and commentary that nicely elucidate this point A thoroughly satisfying history of the great of haiku, up to the beginning of the modern era.

    6. Ray Zimmerman says:

      If you enjoy short poems or delightful visual art, this book is for you It was my first introduction to haiga, visual art specifically created to accompany haiku Addiss illustrates his work liberally with exemplary poems and samples of visual works created to accompany them, stressing the point that they were created to be enjoyed together He traces the history of short form poetry in Japanese society, beginning with tanka, a five line form poem popular early in the previous millennium and conti [...]

    7. William says:

      I got what I wanted out of the book, but really the first few chapters are enough A bunch of history which is interesting, but not necessary I guess, as a teacher, I didn t feel taught, I felt told some things But I do know better what a haiku is and how I plan on writing them Not bad, but certainly not great, either, as a teaching tool.

    8. Patricia says:

      What a wonderful book From the great masters to the little known poets at least in the Western world , this collection is rich in the history of haiku the background, the beautiful and whimsical images, the various transformations through the years, and the way it branched out to take many forms A book I will treasure and reread in years to come.

    9. GONZA says:

      I would have so loved to have the printed form of this book and not the e book Anyway it was a good and interesting reading but you have to have a passion for this type of poetry anywayANKS TO NETGALLEY AND SHAMBALA PUBLICATIONS FOR THE PREVIEW

    10. Walter Burton says:

      This a good book to not only provide an extensive range of Haikus, the background and history of the form and poets for it.s roots in earlier forms The plate of actual artist tanzaku work from Basho to Buson are great addition.
