What People are Saying About This

Amy V. Heinrich

Makoto Ueda has given us several great gifts with his book on women haiku poets: introductions to a host of writers previously unknown to readers in English; concise and eloquent translations of their work—Ueda's translation simply gets better and better with each book and makes it look easy—and a revised view of the history of haiku. Its richness increases with every reading.

Sonja Arntzen

This book breaks new ground and provides an important entrée into the subject of women's haiku for English readers. Deeply moving, amusing, insightful, thought provoking, and breathtakingly beautiful by turns, the poems in this volume cover a wide range of human experience. They reveal both the continuity of a haiku sensibility over the centuries and individual difference. And how good it is to see the women haiku students of Basho getting their due!
