Reading this book was like living _IN_ Mr. Keating's classroom in Dead Poet's Society. Rarely does a book really reach out and touch me as The Genius of Haiku did. Blythe does an incredible job bringing together descriptive information about Haiku poems and subjective information about living life to the fullest. His insight into the lifestyle of Zen and of how this is revealed in English and Japanese literature.
If you love reading haiku, if you love learning what makes haiku significant (in itself and in the greater scheme of literature), if you love inspiring messages on how to see life from another perspective, you MUST read this book.

The books of Blyth are rare and it is difficult to find them. So it was an excellent idea to give in a small book the main ideas of Blyth on world poetry and chiefly on this special Japonese poetry, the Haiku.
