Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Traditional Japanese verse. Translated by Lucien Stark.

Synopsis:

By combining the ideals of "karumi" - lightness of touch - and oneness with nature, Basho (1644-94) rose above the artificiality of previous haiku poets to become the new master of the genre. A perfectionist, he constantly strove to express himself in the purest possible form.
