Snow Falling From a Bamboo Leaf: The Art of Haiku

eBook (PDF), 114 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $6.25
Many lovers of poetry consider haiku to be literature’s most subtle art form. The whole of life seems effortlessly expressed in only a few words and images. The book presents readers with sixty of the more famous classical haiku in the original romanized Japanese along with their interlinear transliterations. This unique combination becomes a great help in understanding how they were made. An introductory essay tells how haiku can just as easily be written in English and as a help to readers creating their own haiku, it explains to them the elegant but rigorous structure of what appears to be an easy art form. This charming and informative book is tastefully illustrated with the author’s own lovely ink drawings.

    "Wonderful Book" I enjoyed this book immensely. I have always liked haiku for its simplicity coupled with deep feeling, but other than playing around I had no idea how to do it right myself. This book not only explained how to properly create haiku in English, it also presented some of the most famous and beautiful haiku. The book itself is laid out elegantly. Highly recommended. If you have friends or family who like poetry or haiku, this makes a great gift.
