An essay I’ve just added to the Essays page is “Unfolding Destiny: Harold G. Henderson’s The Bamboo Broom.” This essay recently appeared in the Haiku Foundation journal Juxta, and assesses Henderson’s 1934 book, asserting that much of its content is still relevant today, even if the translations (with their rhyme, titles, and convoluted syntax) are severely dated. Read this essay to see the amazing information about haiku that Henderson first made available in English through this groundbreaking early book.
