    ARTS: Any haiku book recommendations?

    I'm interested in poetry and I know Haiku is related to zen to some extent, thus, I'd like to introduce to myself this type of poetry.

    Thank in advance

    Hello,

    Basho: The Complete Haiku
    A Beginner's Guide to Japanese Haiku (William Scott Wilson)
    辞世の句(英文版) ― Japanese Death Poems (English Edition)
    Writing Haiku (Ross)

    I have these and re-read them regularly.

    Gassho,

    I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with ’em later.

            Thank you for the recommendations!

            I've been dabbling in Haiku; It's therapeutic for somebody as verbose as I am try to get to the point in a 5-7-5 syllable offering.

            Should be simple. Definitely isn't.

            Gassho,

              I can recommend: “The River of Heaven: The Haiku of Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki”, by Robert Aitken.

                If it is okay, I am going to move this over to the Haiku section so that we can keep the conversation around for future Haikuists.

                  Hi Bernal

                  I wrote a little bit about the relationship between haiku and Zen on my haiku blog: https://yearinhaiku.wordpress.com/zen-and-haiku/

                  As far as books go, it depends whether you want to read classic haiku, modern writers, or have a 'how to' guide on haiku writing and appreciation.

                  These are some books that I recommend: https://yearinhaiku.wordpress.com/books-and-weblinks/

                  A relatively recent book I haven't put on my list yet is Three Simple Lines by writer and Zen teacher, Natalie Goldberg. This is a good read about her visit to various haiku related places in Japan. Upaya Zen Center has hosted a number of haiku retreats with Natalie and others which are worth looking for in their podcast library.

                  For anyone wanting to contribute here, it is good to have a look at the introductory material explaining what a haiku is and isn't:

                  How to Haiku 1
                  How to Haiku 2
                  How to Haiku 3
                  How to Haiku 4
                  How to Haiku 5

                      The great classic in ancient Haiku and modern Rezai Zen Haiku with interviews, which is ancient poetry is: Zen Poetry, ed. Lucien Stryk, 1977, Great Books by Cryal and Wyman, ltd, Europe; in the USA, A Penguin Book.
