Bashō's haiku : selected poems by Matsuo Bashō by Bashō Matsuo( )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and Catalan and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Basho's Haiku offers the most comprehensive translation yet of the poetry of Japanese writer Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), who is credited with perfecting and popularizing the haiku form of poetry. One of the most widely read Japanese writers, both within his own country and worldwide, Basho is especially beloved by those who appreciate nature and those who practice Zen Buddhism. Born into the samurai class, Basho rejected that world after the death of his master and became a wandering poet and teacher. During his travels across Japan, he became a lay Zen monk and studied history and classical poetry. His poems contained a mystical quality and expressed universal themes through simple images from the natural world." "David Landis Barnhill's book strives for literal translations of Basho's work, arranged chronologically in order to show Basho's development as a writer. Avoiding wordy and explanatory translations, Barnhill captures the brevity and vitality of the original Japanese, letting the images suggest the depth of meaning involved. Barnhill also presents an overview of haiku poetry and analyzes the significance of nature in this literary form, while suggesting the importance of Basho to contemporary American literature and environmental thought."--Jacket

Moon woke me up nine times by Bashō Matsuo( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vivid new translations of Basho's popular haiku, in a selected format ideal for newcomers as well as fans long familiar with the Japanese master. Basho, the famously bohemian traveler through seventeenth-century Japan, is a poet attuned to the natural world as well as humble human doings; "Piles of quilts/ snow on distant mountains/ I watch both," he writes. His work captures both the profound loneliness of one observing mind and the broad-ranging joy he finds in our connections to the larger community. David Young, acclaimed translator and Knopf poet, writes in his introduction to this selection, "This poet's consciousness affiliates itself with crickets, islands, monkeys, snowfalls, moonscapes, flowers, trees, and ceremonies ... Waking and sleeping, alone and in company, he moves through the world, delighting in its details." Young's translations are bright, alert, musically perfect, and rich in tenderness toward their maker

Classic haiku : an anthology of poems by Bashō and his followers by Bashō Matsuo( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the utmost economy and skill, the haiku poet paints a vast mural on a narrow canvas. Working within the strict 17-syllable limits of the traditional Japanese form, Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) and other masters evoke elements of the natural world -- cherry blossoms, harvest moons, snow, nightingales -- to conjure up timeless moods and emotions. This volume features dozens of Basho's poems (he is considered the greatest haiku poet), as well as works by his predecessors and ten of his disciples -- Kikaku, Ransetsu, Joso, and Kyoroku among them. Intended principally for readers with no knowledge of Japanese literature, this carefully selected treasury includes a transliteration of the original Japanese for each verse; most poems also include a brief explication
