A new addition to the Essays page is “Beat Haiku and My Discussion with Jack Foley.” It presents an overview by Jack on “Beat Haiku” from a 2003 Haiku Society of America meeting, followed by an extensive email discussion he and I had about his essay, particularly Allen Ginsberg’s (mis)understanding of haiku poetry and the nature of haiku itself.
