Book Overview
This essential collection of Japanese poetry contains nearly two hundred haiku by the four most celebrated haiku masters of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, as well as a delightful seasonal interlude by several other leading haiku poets. Sometimes known as the Great Four of haiku poetry, Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki began mastering the subtle craft of the haiku as far back as 1670, capturing fleeting moments from life and nature with almost photographic clarity in just 17 Japanese syllables.
 
 Featuring a deluxe cloth cover with a foil blocked sticker, over 80 gorgeous accompanying images by renowned photographer John Cleare, and an in-depth introduction by noted anthropologist and poet Tom Lowenstein, this comprehensive and beautifully packaged collection is the perfect gift for the poetry lover in your life.
