The Sound of Water: Haiku by Basho, Buson, Issa, and Other Poets (Shambhala Centaur Editions)

The Sound of Water: Haiku by Basho, Buson, Issa, and Other Poets (Shambhala Centaur Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Haiku may be the most popular and widely recognizable poetic form in the world. In just three lines a great haiku presents a crystalline moment of image, emotion, and awareness. Elements of compassion, silence, and a sense of temporality often combine to reveal a quality of mystery. Just as often, haiku may bring a startling insight into the ordinary, or a flash of humor. Collected here are over two hundred of the best haiku of Japanese literature — written from the seventeenth century to the early twentieth century by the great masters.
