Robert Aitken’s River of Heaven

Post date: Nov 10, 2018 8:30:36 PM

The Reviews page now includes an assessment of Robert Aitken’s last book, The River of Heaven: The Haiku of Bashō, Buson, Issa, and Shiki. My review, “Sharing Experience: Robert Aitken’s River of Heaven,” which appeared in the October 2018 edition of Juxta, the Haiku Foundation’s annual journal of haiku scholarship, also includes an extensive new postscript that explores Aitken’s life and his own writing of haiku. Please have a look.
