Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Unswept Path is a diverse gathering of American poets who have chosen the haiku as one of the forms in which they write. This anthology presents the many faces of the haiku. Each poet chosen has worked the territory of the haiku into a personal landscape, and they offer a panorama of images and sound, joy and sadness, recollection and thought. The Unswept Path is wonderful introduction to the art of the haiku for the writer and reader alike.

Contributors include: Christopher Herold, Elizabeth Searle Lamb, William Higginson, Penny Harter, Margaret Chula, Edith Shiffert, Michael McClure, Diane DiPrima, Sonia Sanchez, Steve Sanfield, Patricia Donegan, John Brandi, and Cid Corman.

Cara Holman, September 30, 2011 (view all comments by Cara Holman)
What really distinguished this haiku anthology from the many others I have read is first, that each collection of haiku is prefaced by an essay written by that collection's author, giving a glimpse into the poet's mind, and secondly, that the thirteen haiku poets showcased in this volume represent a wide range of voices, from traditional to experimental.
