Collected Haiku of Yosa Buson by Buson Yosa( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first complete bilingual translation of the entire Buson Kushu (Buson Collection, 1899), a comprehensive collection of the haiku of Yosa Buson (1716-83) originally published in Japan in the mid-eighteenth century. The translators worked for nearly a decade to co-translate these poems, filled with philosophical inquiry and wisdom about the natural world. Also included are notes and commentary on the context of the poems and the collaboration process along with source notes for those interested in delving deeper.--Adapted from publisher's website

The river of Heaven : the haiku of Bashō, Buson, Issa, and Shiki( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known to many as the study of quiet stillness and introspection, Zen Buddhism distinguishes itself through brilliant flashes of insight and its terseness of expression. In The River of Heaven these concepts and pillars lend themselves to an exploration of haiku, one of the most delicate and interpretive poetic forms in the world. The haiku verse form, with its rigid structure and organic description is a superb means of studying Zen modes of thought because its seventeen syllables impose a limitation that confines the poet to vital experience. In haiku as in Buddhism, the silences are as expressive as the words
Japanese haiku by Yosa Buson( Book )

4 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Step into a series of dazzling, funny, melancholy, and joyous moments with this collection of haiku masterworks. Beloved translator Peter Beilenson's goal was twofold: to craft a book of haiku accessible to anyone, and to render his best guess at what the poets would have written in English. His translations preserve the sublime spirit of each verse, conjuring vivid visual and emotional impressions in spare words.Haiku icon Basho is represented amply here, as are imagery-virtuoso Buson and wry, warm, painfully human Issa. The verses of Shiki, Joso, Kyorai, Kikaku, Chora, Gyodai, Kakei, Izen, and others also appear, all illuminated by lovely woodblock prints. Ranging from exquisite (In the sea surf edge/Mingling with the bright small shells.../Bush-clover petals -Basho) to bittersweet (Dead my fine hopes/And dry my dreaming, but still.../Iris, blue each spring -Shushiki) to silly (Dim the grey cow comes/Mooing, mooing, and mooing/Out of the morning mist -Issa), this collection will stir your senses and your heart

Basho escribio cinco diarios de viaje con bocetos, impresiones y apuntes. Un ejemplo perfecto de un genero en boga, del cual el es uno de los grandes maestros. Esta es una coleccion de veloces dibujos verbales, subitas alusiones y signos de inteligencia. La poesia se mezcla a la reflexion, el humor a la melancolia, la anecdota a la contemplacion

Le Haiku by Bashō Matsuo( Book )

11 editions published between 1974 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les haïkus sont des poèmes très courts venus du Japon, composés traditionnellement de dix-sept syllabes, agencées selon la règle 5-7-5. Ils visent à raconter l'évanescence des choses. Les haïkus sont inspirants, déconcertants, et parfois grivois, légers ou plus graves. Dans ce recueil magnifiquement présenté (avec reliure chinoise), nous retrouvons les haïkus des poètes classiques les plus célèbres, comme Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694), Yosa Buson (1716-1784), Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828) et Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902).
