Amazing work of collecting all of Basho's work. Excellent notes and organization with biographical material. Beautiful visually. The translations however did not appeal to me as much as translations by Robert Hass. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Matsuo Basho stands today as Japan's most renowned writer, and one of the most revered. Yet despite his stature, Basho's complete haiku have never been collected under one cover. Until now. To render the writer's full body of work in English, Jane Reichhold, an American haiku poet and translator, dedicated over ten years to the present compilation. In Barbo: The Complete Haiku she accomplishes the feat with distinction. Dividing the poet's creative output into seven periods of development, Reichhold frames each period with a decisive biographical sketch of the poet's travels, creative influences, and personal triumphs and defeats. Supplementary material includes two hundred pages of scrupulously researched notes, which also contain a literal translation of the poem, the original Japanese, and a Romanized reading. A glossary, chronology, index of first lines, and explanation of Basho's haiku techniques provide additional background information. Finally in the spirit of Basho,elegant semi-e ink drawings by well-known Japanese artist Shiro Tsujimura front each chapter."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
