In my bibliography of Cherry Blossom Epiphany, I call Ueda's book the best book on haiku interpretation ever written. It is. Because Ueda translates commentary by Japanese poets and critics about Basho's ku rather than writing his own analyses, the book did not get as many reviews as it deserved. To make so fine a selection and translate it as well as it is translated is just as hard and requires just as much creativity as writing a novel. Read this book if you would understand Japanese haiku (and why multiple translation is often needed, though Ueda does not discuss or do this).
