Haiku Notebook Second Edition
by W. F. Owen
In addition to the humorous poems on the Internet, haiku have literary roots in ancient Japan. Award-winning haiku poet W. F. Owen presents a primer for the serious-minded poet in this second edition of Haiku Notebook. The book is written in haibun style (prose combined with haiku), so readers can see the origins, themes and contexts of the poems. There are over 260 poems presented.
