The Art of Haiku by Stephen Addiss. The Art of Haiku: Its History Through Poems and Paintings by Japanese Masters. I have to say, it’s been a long time since I’ve been so sorry to finish a book. As Addiss’s overview progresses, he offers brief biographies of the various poets along with samples of their best haiku - mostly just a small handful or even two to three. That’s enough, though, to give the Western reader a flavor, perhaps, of the many different poets who contributed to the haiku’s development.

ABSTRACT: Traditional Japanese poems with strong nature themes are still very relevant today as relatable statements of environmental consciousness and the value and appreciation of nature, and can be a useful tool for environmental education. This paper is a brief study of various aspects and elements of these poems, particularly the related aesthetic and philosophical perspectives of wabi-sabi and Zen Buddhism and the importance of nature and season, with the goal of developing greater appreciation for their relevance and communicative power.

12 Haiku Poems from the Japanese Masters.

In the past hundred years, haiku has gone far beyond its Japanese origins to become a worldwide phenomenon—with the classic poetic form growing and evolving as it has adapted to the needs of the whole range of languages and cultures that have embraced it. This proliferation of the joy of haiku is cause for celebration—but it can also compel us to go back to the beginning: to look at haiku’s development during the centuries before it was known outside Japan. This in-depth study of haiku history begins with the great early masters of the form—like Basho, Buson, and Issa—and goes all the way to twentieth-century greats, like Santoka. It also focuses on an important aspect of traditional haiku that is less known in the West: haiku art. All the great haiku masters created paintings (called haiga) or calligraphy in connection with their poems, and the words and images were intended to be enjoyed together, enhancing each other, and each adding its own dimension to the reader’s and viewer’s understanding. Here one of the leading haiku scholars of the West takes us on a tour of haiku poetry’s evolution, providing along the way a wealth of examples of the poetry and the art inspired by it.

The Art of Haiku
Stephen Addiss

If you enjoy short poems or delightful visual art, this book is for you. It was my first introduction to haiga, visual art specifically created to accompany haiku. Addiss illustrates his work liberally with exemplary poems and samples of visual works created to accompany them, stressing the point that they were created to be enjoyed together. He traces the history of short form poetry in Japanese society, beginning with tanka, a five line form poem popular early in the previous millennium and continued into the present day, and contrasts it with the Chinese style poetry which was popular in the imperial court. He follows this with biographies of the three acknowledged masters of Haiku and Haiban, Basho (17th century), Buson (18h century)and Issa (19th century). The chapters on these three include illustrations of their artwork, as do the sections on Zen poets and early 20th century haiku poets. He ends the work at World War II, stating that Haiku has since become a world wide phenomenon, and a description of it in recent years would fill another book. I found it a delightful read.

I did experience some difficulty navigating between the text and the illustrations on my Kindle Fire. Apparently the publishers originally placed the illustrations in the center of the book and the clickable links in the Kindle edition were difficult to operate with touch screen. The screen size also made some of the illustrations difficult to view. I will try looking at it with the Kindle App on my laptop,

I have now acquired a hardbound copy. Although I am happy with the other books in my kindle library, I like the size and accessibility of the illustrations in the bound copy better than the ebook, in this particular case.

This is an excellent book. It takes you into the history of Haiku showing the graphics that the traditional Haiku pioneers used when producing the poetry. It was an eye opener. Taught me a lot even though I have read many other Haiku books. Also, it is just an enjoyable book to read.

This is a scholarly work so well written and illustrated that the reader is treated to a learning experience about Haiku while enjoying the hundreds of delightful poems the author presents and describes. By far, the most enjoyable book of and about Haiku that I have read.

Thank you! Very pleased!

This is hands down the best history of haiku that I've read (and I've read a few now). It is comprehensive while other books only include pieces of the story. It is readable and avoids fawning over the subject. The additional information on calligraphy and painting in conjunction with haiku completes the picture. The outlines of the lives of the haikuin included provide the human aspects of this art. If you are interested in the subject, this book is a must have.

beautiful book, i highly recommend it. 3 line poem that paints a picture to your mind. very relaxing.
This is such an informative book; fabulous illustrations as well as a wealth of haikus and other "goodies" This book took LOTS of effort and research to compile and I'm so glad I purchased it!
