Matsuo Basho, perhaps the greatest of all Japanese poets, has been called "Nature's pilgrim." Toward the middle of his career he wrote, "Traveller's my name ...," and travel was, in fact, with haiku, one of the central facts of his existence. He spent much of his life wandering through Japan seeking nature and history, poverty and simplicity, friends and solitude, and poetry: " ... I have lived a life of painful wanderings with wind and cloud, racking my brains over poems about flowers and birds." ... --Grossman Publishers, Inc. Donated by Judy Sackheim, 10/2011

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

8 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 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

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 114 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
