The book comprises two parts: first is the intrduction of the four most celebrated haiku masters: Basho, Buson, Issa and shiki and second part is the representative works by each haiku poet plus many ohters. The introduction is illuminating and informative and the translation and the selection of haiku is among the best. The entire book is also a collection of amazing photographs of nature done by John Cleare. This is a book that has captured the essence of peaceful and elegant haiku.

I totally enjoyed this book. I wanted to read more about Haiku and this book gave me a wonderful overview of Haiku as well as nice background information about the authors. It sort of takes you to a different "space" where poetry and those who wrote it were so appreciated and revered.

All the Haikus in this are great & one can read them again & again & find a different meaning every time you read it.

Lovely edition.....very reasonable price; as with all good poetry, and especially with a collection so handsomely
produced....."priceless."
