First, let me make it clear, I dislike the book not because of its content, but because of stupid technical issues I had with it. Haikus are soothing, minimalistic and thought provoking; its their nature to be so. However, the book utterly destroys the serenity of the poetry by displaying the poems in black text super-imposed on Crimson sheets of paper. Elsewhere there are white sheets that have RED lines of poetry written on top. I can't be alone in thinking that the Red color's highly stimulat [...]

Este libro es más bien una linda edición de una brevísima introducción al mundo de los haikus. Los haikus, como la literatura japonesa, están llenos de escenas cotidianas y funcionan casi como microrrelatos. No hay metáforas intencionales ni grandes figuras retóricas. Lo más lindo de este libro es la edición y la introducción con la explicación. Creo que el haiku traducido, alejado del alfabeto japonés original pierde mucho su magia. La idea de la ambigüedad de la construcción de c [...]

Fijne introductie met toegankelijke informatie die wel degelijk een beetje de diepte in gaat. Ook goed zijn de lijnen tussen de behandelde dichters die duidelijk weergegeven worden. Ik vond de vormgeving echter teleurstellend: sommige foto's lijken een beetje op van die typische stock-foto's. Daardoor komen sommige Haiku's niet tot hun recht (tenzij je heel goed je best doet om de foto's te negeren maar ja, dan hadden ze er net zo goed NIET in kunnen staan, toch?! toch?!!).

This is a nice bedside book, a book to pick up and enjoy in small doses. It begins with an introduction that includes a history of Japanese haiku and biographies of Matsuo Bashō, Yosa Buson, Kobayashi Issa, and Masaoka Shiki. And because the publisher probably thought that a book of haiku poems alone might not sell well, it is loade with landscape photographs by John Cleare. Nice photos, but distracting.My favorite haiku is from Buson.A paper kite fliesJust where it wasIn yesterday’s sky.

I've always been intrigued by this ancient Japanese form of poetry. The simplistic use of 17 syllables in 3 lines where each line has a 5-7-5 syllable count, with lines/ideas linked by very visual words, thoughts and emotions. This book starts with a brief background to the evolution of this poetry firm and then 4 of its most famous originators (Bashō, Busson, Issa and Shiki). It then provides examples of their most famous works. One can see the evolution in haiku writing style from one era to [...]

I love how haiku can perfectly place you in a moment. Some of my favorites:Plovers on the beach.The wolf's tracksare crossed out and rewritten.--FumikuniLittle snail,slowly, slowly,climbs Mount Fuji.--IssaThose distant mountains reflected in theeye-jewels of the dragonfly.--IssaDon't cry, little insects!Love involves parting.It even happens among the stars.--IssaAfter I'm dead, tell people I was a persimmon eaterwho also loved haiku.--ShikiPoets moved by the monkey's cry:what would you feel for [...]

No soy de leer poesía habitualmente. Pero este libro me llamó. Paseaba por una biblioteca y me lo encontré, a la altura de mis ojos. Lo cogí sin pensar.Me fascina cómo consiguen crear imágenes tan potentes con tan pocas sílabas. Aunque muchos de los haiku no los entiendo o los comprendo, los que sí son aplastantes.Puntos en contra para esta edición, que sólo trae los haiku traducidos al castellano. Lo sé, la versión en japonés antiguo sería ilegible, pero sería precioso verlos cal [...]

I haven't had much interest in poetry on any kind. I picked up this book mostly because I knew it wouldn't take long to read and I could pick it up and put it down. And I was right and wrong.The introduction was very helpful, it gave me a sense of what the haiku were trying to tell me and an idea of what shaped the people who wrote them. Without it I would probably have little appreciation for the haiku in the book.For me, reading haiku needs a mind at peace and rest. I was hurrying through the [...]

I want to like haiku more than I do. Some of the poems in this collection did have a certain depth, a turn of phrase that I found deeply satisfying. But most of them simply didn't speak to me. The introduction to the book gives a little background on the history of haiku and the poets included in the volume. I would have liked more information on how the particular poems were selected and arranged.The book is visually stunning, with original nature photography serving as a background to the poet [...]

Empecé el libro con muchas expectativas porque había oído hablar de la belleza de estas composiciones, pero salvo algunos, la mayoría me han dejado bastante frío.Sin lugar a dudas, al menos por lo que he leído en este libro, me quedo con la poesía occidental.La selección de fotografías que acompañan los poemas es lo mejor del libro, y la edición es muy buena.

The amount of haiku in this collection was somewhat sparse, tho powerful. I enjoyed the informative section on the life of each of the selected poets, as well as the art of haiku in general. I would have liked to seen more work from each of the selected poets represented--as is, some of Basho's best poems (even ones mentioned elsewhere in the preface) were not included in the body proper.

A nice intro to a deeper understanding of haiku. We rarely read about the nuances involved in writing a true Japanese haiku, simply grabbing the easy structure.
