Defining Haibun

New on the Essays page, and available through the Haibun page, is “Haibun: Definitions of Light,” an overview of various historical definitions of this distinctive and chiefly autobiographical sort of prose that integrates haiku poetry. This essay was first published, in a significantly different form, as the introduction to the haibun anthology, Wedge of Light, which I published in 1999, and was recently updated and published in Contemporary Haibun Online.
