This is a wonderful little publication - both the Haiku and Jane's writing. Highly recommended. My wife is learning to use the Kindle so she can read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief, illuminating, moving, 2 Aug 2013

This review is from: The Heart of Haiku (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This short book is not diminished by its size; Hirshfield manages to both describe Bashō's life, the history of haiku and his place in Japanese tradition, and to explore and analyse some of his poems, simply and insightfully. It is an enlightening and at times moving read, and a wonderful introduction to both Bashō and the form of haiku.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inside the heart of haiku, 10 April 2014

This review is from: The Heart of Haiku (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
I bought this as I came across it on the list of Kindle Singles and was intrigued to know more about this beautiful form of poetry. The single is an expertly researched article on the life and works of Basho, a 17th century Japanese poet, and his art form, the haiku. Beautifully written and just long enough to keep your attention, this is recommended for anyone interested in the culture of Japan or poetry.

I really enjoyed the unfolding of the poet's life story and also the examples of his work. I will reread this book and dip into the haikus with pleasure and will look for more of his work.
