Haiku in English (808.8141 Haiku)
I first encountered the Japanese haiku form of poetry as a junior high assignment. We had to write a poem in English-17 syllables in three lines on any topic. I’ve admired the effort involved ever since. “Haiku in English: the first 100 years” includes a summary of the haiku’s history and 800 poems originally written in English by 200 poets. The poets’ skills in this short format are amazing and a pleasure to read and savor.
