Description
Although haiku originated in Japan, this highly distilled poetic form has found a welcome home in the English-speaking world, as proven in this anthology of more than 800 superb examples originally written in English. Introduced by former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins, the book ranges from the first fully realized haiku in English, Ezra Pound's "In a Station of the Metro," to examples by such haiku virtuosos as John Wills, Marlene Mountain, Nick Virgilio, and Raymond Roseliep and haikus by eminent poets like John Ashbery, Allen Ginsberg, and Seamus Heaney. Here too are organic form experiments by E.E. Cummings and Michael McClure, evocations of black culture by Richard Wright and Sonia Sanchez, and the seminal efforts of Jack Kerouac.
