How to Write a Haiku provides a concise introduction to the art of the haiku and takes the beginner through the process of capturing the fleeting moment or a high point of experience. This practical guide gives examples of haiku newly translated from the Japanese, as well as original haiku in English, and illustrates how the raw material of experience and recollection can be shaped into both formal and informal versions of the traditional haiku.
