Haiku in English: The First Hundred Years
An anthology of haiku in English, from Ezra Pounds early experiments to the present-day masters.Although haiku started as a Japanese art form, it has found a welcome home in the English-speaking world. With an introduction by former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins, Haiku in English features more than 800 brilliantly chosen poems from over 100 years. By covering a century, the anthology allows readers to reflect on the genre's unique evolution. The poems range from Pound's ""In a Station of the Metro"" to Jack Kerouacs seminal efforts, to contemporary work, where poems by such widely known poets as Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, and John Ashbery share space with haiku masters including Nick Virgilio, John Wills, and Raymond Roseliep. The first anthology to chart the full range of haiku in the English tradition, Haiku in English is the perfect collection of this spare and elegant genre.
