Haiku may be the most popular and widely recognized poetic form in the world. In just three lines, a great haiku presents a crystalline moment of image, emotion, and awareness. Collected here are over two hundred of the best haiku of Japanese literature, written by the great masters of the genre from the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries and translated by one of America’s premier poet-translators.
