4.0 out of 5 stars A seminal work on haiku, but not for easy reading. 11 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Anywhere you go to find out more about Haiku, this series of books is mentioned. Book One focuses mainly on the philosophy behind Japanese haiku - Zen, worship of nature etc - giving plenty of examples from masters like Buson, Issa and of course Basho. If you want to learn about the history and philosophical significance of haiku, then this book is an excellent, even essential starting point. If you want to learn more about the practice of haiku in the west, or even in modern Japan, then this is NOT the book for you.
