The Classic Tradition of Haiku

Post date: May 24, 2012 1:46:11 AM

New to my Reviews page is the text of a hand-written review, written in 1997, that I just discovered in my copy of Faubion Bowers’ The Classic Tradition of Haiku: An Anthology, published by Dover Publications in 1996. This review may have been published somewhere, but I’ve lost track of the details, but maybe I’ll discover where and can update the page with that information. This is an important little book, although in the years since I wrote my review, I can’t say it's been as influential as I had originally imagined, especially given its very cheap price and ubiquitous availability.
