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

15 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only collection of haiku by Japanese women, this volume includes translations of 400 haiku written by twenty poets from the seventeenth century (Bashos school) to the second half of the twentieth. By reading chronologically, the reader comes away with an overview of the way in which this seventeen-syllable form has established itself from its inception to the present. For each poet, Ueda provides a brief biographical and critical headnote, followed by twenty haiku for each. This collection goes a long way toward countering the marginalization of the women writers of Japan

Modern Japanese haiku : an anthology by Makoto Ueda( Book )

32 editions published between 1975 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The West has become familiar with Japanese haiku predominantly through the works of classical masters such as Bashõ, Buson, and Issa. If the leading haiku poets in modern Japan are unknown in the West, it is simply because translations of their works have not been available. This anthology presents, in English translation, twenty haikus each from the work of twenty modern poets. The writers have been selected to exemplify the various trends that have dominated Japanese haiku in the last hundred years, but the individual haiku have been selected for literary merit; more than anything else this is intended to be a book of poetry. In the introduction Professor Ueda traces the development of the verse form to the present. Brief biographies of the twenty poets are also provided. Haiku, by its very nature, asks each reader to be a poet. Thus, for each haiku the poetic translation is accompanied by the original Japanese and a word-by-word translation into English, and the reader is invited to compose his own poem, to enter into that private relationship with the poem that haiku demands

The second is to make available in English a wide spectrum of Japanese critical commentary on the poems over the last three hundred years. The hokku are arranged in chronological order, so the reader can trace the

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
