I recently started readying Haiku through Patricia Donegan's Haiku Mind

I recently started readying Haiku through Patricia Donegan's Haiku Mind. I was looking for another book which dealt primarily with North American writers as I found these were my favourites in her book. This Anthology comprises 850 haiku and senryu written in English by 89 poets, including the top haiku writers of North America past and present.

Whenever the name of Cor van den Heuvel is mentioned, most people would think of "the" anthology. The book is becoming an essential reference book of haiku lovers in the world.

The Haiku Anthology book. The book just came to me this weekend while I was on a haiku retreat in Seabeck, W. and it's awesome. In all seriousness, this book may be the only case in which I read the introduction before I actually started reading the rest of it. And I actually enjoyed it.

As the book says "It is simply the best, most extensive collection of English language haiku in existence and I agree.

This is a wonderful Haiku book to learn from.

It is very hard to discuss the quality of haiku since its ability to resonate in our emotions through imagery is so subjective. Let me just say that I discovered new poets I never heard of before who made a powerful impression on me. That alone is worth five stars to me.

Loved it. For van den Heuvel is a master poet and collector, and this collection really stands out. A must for any haiku fan eager to see how contemporary masters do it.

I love it! I had never thought of purchasing an anthology before this one, I am very glad I did. It gave me new insight into writing and reading Haiku. There are several more I plan on purchasing.

5-7-5 is not the standard for most of the best haiku practitioners in English. The only place where 5-7-5 is the majority is in the classroom when taught by English teachers who've made no study of the form beyond: "5-7-5, season word." For one thing 5-7-5 onji in Japanese is not the same as that number of syllables in English. Some aim for 3-5-3, as closer to the length of the Japanese poem, or want a poem that can be said in one breath. A rigid adherence to 5-7-5 often leads to poems that are stretced and squeezed in unnatural ways to fit, and also to poems being considered haiku because of the syllable count. You learned 5-7-5 in grade school. You're a little older now. :>
Books were in excellent condition even though they were classified used. Arrived in very good time. Thank you.
