37 of 37 people found the following review helpful By William J. Higginson on May 18, 1999
Format: Paperback
Pat Donegan is a serious American poet who has taught with Allen Ginsberg and others at Naropa Institute and studied haiku in Japan with the then-leading Japanese master, Seishi Yamaguchi. Her co-translator, Yoshie Ishibashi, is descended from an old line of poets and artists and served as Seishi's and Donegan's translator, absorbing a deep appreciation for haiku in the process.
Ishibashi's research and Donegan's excellent sense of the English needed for the translations, plus the many rich extras in this carefully designed and organized book (full kasen by Chiyo-ni and colleagues, excellent intro, etc.) all combine to make this a must-have for any serious student of haiku. Goes a long way toward redressing the unwarranted bad rap laid on Japanese women haiku poets.

As much as I love and respect the works of the well-knownmasters, especially Issa and Basho, I must admit that the haiku of Chiyo-ni,to me, rings truer!I treasure this outstanding collection, and how fortunate we are to have these at our disposal.Donegan and Ishibashi are to be congratulated and thanked.So perfectly clear and stunning is each poem that I read only a few at a time - to savor them.Highly recommended for anyone interested in haiku, and anyone who desires a complete collection of great haiku.

I really enjoyed this beautifully written biography of Chiyo-Ni, as well as the the banquet of her exquisite haiku. In addition, there are many examples of drawings/paintings done of her by her contemporaries. I would highly recommend this book, and have re-read the haiku many times. Chiyo-Ni is truly a master of her art and it is so fortunate that her works have survived for our enjoyment.

This biography of woman haiku master Chiyo-ni is interwoven
with beautiful translations of her haiku as well as intelligent background material on the form itself. A must-have.
