Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Some 120 haiku by such masters as Basho, Issa, and Buson--all written on themes of animals, birds, and insects--are combined with the woodblock prints and paintings of such artists as Hokusai, Sesson, and Kano Tan 'yu. The poems appear both in skillful English translation, as well as the original Japanese. Lovely poems, lovely art, and lovely production by Weatherhill. A great gift. Annotation c.

    This is an excellent book of haiku poetry to read from the master of the craft. The book is arranged into four major sections and addresses nature in the following fashions: walkers, flyers, crawlers, and swimmers. The haiku poems are written about animals, fowl, insects, creatures and the like in four major classifications. The connection between nature, mankind and the elements is blended together in this masterpiece. The next section of the book gives a biographical sketch of the artists who contributed their wonderful illustrations. Their artistic abilities cover animals and creatures, fowl, and insects from the four major areas of walkers, flyers, crawlers and swimmers. The final section is about the poets who are the featured writers in the book. Haikus from the masters, such as Basho, Issa and Buson will touch your soul. The book also gives a biographical sketch of some of the major female haiku poets who are discussed. The illustrators are listed by page as well. This is an excellent haiku book to read and enjoy. It is easy relaxing reading, not complicated, and is soothing to the mind, body and soul.
