Classic Haiku: A Master's SelectionClassic Haiku: A Master's Selection by Yuzuru Miura

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A collection of the classic poetry form including major figures like Basho, Issa, and Buson as well as more contemporary writers. The translator (wisely, in my opinion) chose to translate the poems more for expression, not trying to stick to the syllable pattern. The original Japanese is included as well. The poems are divided up into sections based on the seasons and there is biographical information about the poets included. A strong anthology.
