Step into a series of dazzling, funny, melancholy, and joyous moments with this collection of haiku masterworks. Translators Peter Beilenson and Harry Behn approached this volume with the twofold goal of crafting a book of haiku accessible to anyone and rendering their best guess at what the poets would have written in English. Their translations preserve the sublime spirit of each verse, conjuring vivid visual and emotional impressions in spare words.Haiku icon Basho is represented amply here, as are imagery-virtuoso Buson and wry, warm, painfully human Issa. The verses of Shiki, Joso, Kyorai, Kikaku, Chora, Gyodai, Kakei, Izen, and others also appear, illuminated by lovely woodblock prints. From the playful (Oh, that summer moon!/It made me go wandering/Round the pond all night Basho) to the bittersweet (Everything I touch/With tenderness, alas/Pricks like a bramble Issa) to the fondly amused (It is not easy/to be sure which end is which/of a resting slug Kyorai), this collection will stir your senses and your heart.
