Product Description

Product Description

This book can be used to explore the subtle beauty of haiku poetry, as a guide to meditation, or to appreciate the reproduced paintings that accompany the poems. The paintings are in brilliant color and each features the Japanese parasol.

Matsuo Basho (1644 - 1694) was born Matsuo Kinsaku during the early Edo period in Japan. During his lifetime, Basho was recognized for his work in a poetic form that was a precursor to the haiku. Over the course of time, Basho became recognized as an unparalleled master of the haiku. His work is internationally renowned, and his poems are reproduced at many historical sites in Japan.

A beautiful mix of poetry and impressionist painting. the poems are arranged thematically by season, and so it is easy to dip into the book and find a morsel to entertain you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting! 29 Aug 2013
By Mr. Simon Paddon VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this gravely. Each Haiku is deep and thoughtful, and I found each one to be a point of reflection. The illustrations add little or nothing sadly, but the verse stands up for itself.

Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Japanese references whatsoever 30 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book consists purely of English versions of Basho's haiku : no Japanese script, no romaji transliteration, no reference to originals! Not even a single Japanese themed illustration let alone a genuine Japanese print. The illustrations are just romantic, not quite pre Raphaelite women.
No use if you are at all interested in genuine Haiku.
