I’ve been reading as much as I can lately as part of my continuing explorations of haiku. To that end, I bought these three books:
Bashō. Bashō and His Interpreters: Selected Hokku with Commentary. Edited and Translated by Makoto Ueda. Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, 1992.
Goldberg, Natalie. Three Simple Lines: A Writer’s Pilgrimage Into the Heart and Homeland of Haiku. Novato, CA: New World Library, 2021.
Wojnicki, Tad, ed. Sucking Mangoes Naked: Erotic Haiku. Los Angeles: Writers & Lovers Studio, 2022.
Indermaur, Katherine. IǀI. Geneva, NY: Seneca Review Books, 2022.
I recently read an article about this hybrid memoir in Poets & Writers. It sounded intriguing enough that I decided to buy it.
