Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Haiku Moment is a landmark work [which] is recommended for anyone who wishes to read some of the best examples of haiku written in English."—Professor Makoto Ueda, Editor, Basho and His Interpreters

"Haiku Moment is an impressive collection of haiku authored by the largest group of North American haiku poets…ever assembled in one volume."—Cor van den Heuvel, Editor, The Haiku Anthology

"In addition to the superb collection of haiku,…the editor's Introduction is a masterful essay on North American English-language haiku and the intrinsic attributes of Japanese haiku that should be incorporated in our Western haiku."—Robert Spiess, Editor, Modern Haiku

"Bruce Ross has done a remarkably thorough job…"—George Swede, Editor, Canadian Haiku Anthology

Synopsis:

Haiku Moment is the most comprehensive volume of contemporary North American haiku written in English.

It contains over 800 haiku by 185 poets. Most of the haiku in this collection are nature poems, some of these merely nature sketches overlaid with recognizable human emotion. In general, these haiku are meant to reflect either the style of the Basho School of haiku with its emphasis on the preservation of temporal loneliness and emotional objectivity or the haiku of Issa with their joyful evocations of the liveliness and empathic resonance found in the natural world.

Noteworthy haiku poets include:

  • Charles Dickens
  • Patricia Donegan
  • Adele Kenny
  • Matthew Louviere
  • Bruce Ross
  • Miriam Sagan
  • Ruth Yarrow

Synopsis:

This extraordinary collection is the most comprehensive volume of contemporary North American haiku written in English, containing over 800 haiku by 170 poets.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. xxxiv-xxxv) and index.
