Highlighting a lesser-known aspect of one of America's most influential authors, this new collection displays Jack Kerouac's interest in and mastery of haiku. Experimenting with this compact poetic genre throughout his career, Kerouac often included haiku in novels, correspondence, notebooks, journals, sketchbooks, and recordings. In this collection, Kerouac scholar Regina Weinreich supplements an incomplete draft of a haiku manuscript found in Kerouac's archives with a generous selection of Kerouac's other haiku, from both published and unpublished sources. With more than 500 poems, this is a must-have volume for Kerouac enthusiasts everywhere.

The first Penguin anthology of Japanese haiku, in vivid new translations by Adam L. Kern. Now a global poetry, the haiku was originally a Japanese verse form that flourished from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries. Although renowned for its brevity, usually running three lines long in seventeen syllables, and by its use of natural imagery to make Zen-like observations about reality, in fact the haiku is much more: it can be erotic, funny, crude and mischievous. Presenting over a thousand exemplars in vivid and engaging translations, this anthology offers an illuminating introduction to this widely celebrated, if misunderstood, art form. Adam L. Kern's new translations are accompanied here by the original Japanese and short commentaries on the poems, as well as an introduction and illustrations from the period.

Si Sôseki le romancier est de longue date traduit et commenté chez nous, une part plus secrète et à la fois plus familière de son œuvre nous est encore inconnue, Sôseki a écrit plus de 2500 haikus, de sa jeunesse aux dernières années de sa vie : moments de grâce, libérés de l’étouffante pression de la vie réelle, où l’esprit fait halte au seuil d’un poème, dans une intense plénitude. « Affranchis de la question de leur qualité littéraire, ils ont à mes yeux une valeur inestimable, puisqu’ils sont pour moi le souvenir de la paix dans cœur... Simplement, je serais heureux si les sentiments qui m’habitaient alors et me faisaient vivre résonnaient, avec le moins de décalage possible, dans le cœur du lecteur. » Ce livre propose un choix de 135 haïkus, illustrés de peintures et calligraphies de l’auteur, précédés d’une préface par l’éditeur de ses Œuvres complètes au Japon.

Step into a series of dazzling, funny, melancholy, and joyous moments with this collection of haiku masterworks. Beloved translator Peter Beilenson's goal was twofold: to craft a book of haiku accessible to anyone, and to render his best guess at what the poets would have written in English. His translations preserve the sublime spirit of each verse, conjuring vivid visual and emotional impressions in spare words.Haiku icon Basho is represented amply here, as are imagery-virtuoso Buson and wry, warm, painfully human Issa. The verses of Shiki, Joso, Kyorai, Kikaku, Chora, Gyodai, Kakei, Izen, and others also appear, all illuminated by lovely woodblock prints. Ranging from exquisite (In the sea surf edge/Mingling with the bright small shells.../Bush-clover petals -Basho) to bittersweet (Dead my fine hopes/And dry my dreaming, but still.../Iris, blue each spring -Shushiki) to silly (Dim the grey cow comes/Mooing, mooing, and mooing/Out of the morning mist -Issa), this collection will stir your senses and your heart.

This book of haiku is a collection of haiku I wrote mostly in college when I found myself bored in classes. There are over 200 of them in my collection and they run a gamut of different topics. Although haiku are usually associated with nature, I wanted to use this simple poetic form to take a look at more serious and deeper topics so in a way this is a book of haiku for adults.

American Haiku: New Readings explores the history and development of haiku by American writers, examining individual writers. In the late nineteenth century, Japanese poetry influenced through translation the French Symbolist poets, from whom British and American Imagist poets, Amy Lowell, Ezra Pound, T. E. Hulme, and John Gould Fletcher, received stimulus. Since the first English-language hokku (haiku) written by Yone Noguchi in 1903, one of the Imagist poet Ezra Pound’s well-known haiku-like poem, “In A Station of the Metro,” published in 1913, is most influential on other Imagist and later American haiku poets. Since the end of World War II many Americans and Canadians tried their hands at writing haiku. Among them, Richard Wright wrote over four thousand haiku in the final eighteen months of his life in exile in France. His Haiku: This Other World, ed. Yoshinobu Hakutani and Robert L. Tener (1998), is a posthumous collection of 817 haiku Wright himself had selected. Jack Kerouac, a well-known American novelist like Richard Wright, also wrote numerous haiku. Kerouac’s Book of Haikus, ed. Regina Weinreich (Penguin, 2003), collects 667 haiku. In recent decades, many other American writers have written haiku: Lenard Moore, Sonia Sanchez, James A. Emanuel, Burnell Lippy, and Cid Corman. Sonia Sanchez has two collections of haiku: Like the Singing Coming off the Drums (Boston: Beacon Press, 1998) and Morning Haiku (Boston: Beacon Press, 2010). James A. Emanuel’s Jazz from the Haiku King (Broadside Press, 1999) is also a unique collection of haiku. Lenard Moore, author of his haiku collections The Open Eye (1985), has been writing and publishing haiku for over 20 years and became the first African American to be elected as President of the Haiku Society of America. Burnell Lippy’s haiku appears in the major American haiku journals, Where the River Goes: The Nature Tradition in English-Language Haiku (2013).Cid Corman is well-known not only as a haiku poet but a translator of Japanese ancient and modern haiku poets: Santoka, Walking into the Wind (Cadmus Editions, 1994).

Gina Nemo pens a unique form of haiku - flowing, natural, meaningful and thought-provoking. Her haikus speak "real life." She brings you to the heights and depths of your soul. Her words encourage you to explore the condition of your relationship with the world: your family, your friends and lovers, but most importantly, your "self." Inspired by her own experiences of life, haikus flow from Gina's mind as naturally as a pure mountain spring. She will take you on a journey through space and time. Where she will grab your very essence, turning you inside out and upside down. When she has finished with you, she will gently bring you back to reality. This is but one of Gina's admirable qualities. I have been reading Gina Nemo's haikus and poems since 14th of June, 2013. I look forward to each new haiku and poem as though it were the first. Also, I have been playing Gina's own recordings of her poems on my radio show: "MY KIND OF MUSIC," on CRY104FM, Youghal, County Cork, Ireland. This has made my show special and interesting. Feedback from my listeners, through phone calls and texts, tells me that they enjoy Gina's poetry. In fact, they have requested that I play more poems during my show, which I am now doing. Poems come from Gina's books, "Strings," "Scarlet," and her latest book of poetry, "Carousel." Also, poems come from her audio poetry releases, "Strings," "Swoop," and "Serenade." - Paddy Lane

Richard Wright, one of the early forceful and eloquent spokesmen for black Americans, author of the acclaimed Native Son and Black Boy, discovered the haiku in the last eighteen months of life. He attempted to capture, through his sensibility as an African-American, the elusive Zen discipline and beauty in depicting man’s relationship, not only to his fellow man as he had in the raw and forceful prose of his fiction, but to the natural world. In all, he wrote over 4,000 haiku. Here are the 817 he personally chose; Wright’s haiku, disciplined and steeped in beauty, display a universality that transcends both race and color without ever denying them. Wright wrote his haiku obsessively—in bed, in cafes, in restaurants, in both Paris and the French countryside. They offered him a new form of expression and a new vision: with the threat of death constantly before him, he found in them inspiration, beauty, and insights. Fighting illness and frequently bedridden, deeply upset by the recent loss of his mother, Ella, Wright continued, as his daughter notes in her introduction, “to spin these poems of light out of the gathering darkness.”

Fun, informative poetry about the brain. Elephant on brain "You have a lot on your mind" Neurologist says. The brain has fascinated philosophers and scientists for centuries. And why not? It is perhaps the most mysterious thing in the universe. Yet it’s probably safe to say that The Little Book of Neuroscience Haiku approaches the brain in a way that no one has before. Neuroscientist Eric H. Chudler has created a whimsical yet educational book of haiku about the brain, each poem conforming to the strict definition of the Japanese verse form: three lines containing five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables. Organized in three parts, one part discusses places (areas of the brain); one takes up things (such as brain scans); and one is about people (such as the researchers who have helped us learn about this elusive organ). Extensive notes complete the book, educating readers in an amusing, poetic, and at times moving fashion. This book will be sure to delight science readers.
