Light verse from the floating world : an anthology of premodern Japanese senryu by Makoto Ueda( )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Far beyond the field : haiku by Japanese women : an anthology by Makoto Ueda( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Far Beyond the Field is a first-of-its-kind anthology of haiku by Japanese women, collecting translations of four hundred haiku written by twenty poets from the seventeenth century to the present. By arranging the poems chronologically, Makoto Ueda has created an overview of the way in which this enigmatic seventeen-syllable form has been used and experimented with during different eras. At the same time, the reader is admitted to the often marginalized world of female experience in Japan, revealing voices every bit as rich and colorful, and perhaps even more lyrical and erotic, than those found in male haiku. Listen, for instance, to Chiyojo, who worked in what has been long thought of as the dark age of haiku during the eighteenth century, but who composed exquisitely fine poems tracing the smallest workings of nature. Or Katsuro Nobuko, who wrote powerfully erotic poems when she was widowed after only two years of marriage. And here, too, is a voice from today, Mayuzumi Madoka, whose meditations on romantic love represent a fresh new approach to haiku

The path of flowering thorn : the life and poetry of Yosa Buson by Makoto Ueda( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yosa Buson (1716-83) is a towering figure in the history of haiku. In reputation his only rival is Matsuo Basho, the very "father of haiku," who almost singlehandedly elevated the seventeen-syllable verse to a mature and viable poetic form during the seventeenth century. While Buson considered Basho his mentor and actively participated in the "Return to Basho" movement, he was also aware of his distinctly different temperament and consciously attempted to cultivate it in his poetry. This book presents an overview of Buson's life and poetry, beginning with speculations on the mysterious circumstances of his birth and then tracing the various stages of his career as poet. In the process, the author cites some 180 of Buson's haiku in English translation, and analyzes them from a predominantly biographical point of view. He also discusses Buson's outstanding achievements in renku (linked verse), haishi (long poems in the spirit of haiku), and haibun (haiku prose). The book is illustrated with twelve examples of Buson's work as painter and calligrapher
