PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

12 classic poems from the four men considered masters of Japanese haiku poetry: Basho, Issa, Buson, and Shiki. Each poster comes with colorful photo and original Japanese text.

I find that English translations usually do not follow the rules for haiku composition; mainly, that the three lines should be five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables. I have included English translations for every haiku following the syllabic rule. (Some of the translations are from other people, but most are my own.) Furigana are included for the Kanji characters.

Also included is a PDF timeline of when the four masters were alive, along with various world events, and an artist chart, which shows writers, musicians, and artists who were contemporaries of the Japanese haiku masters.

Perfect for a beginning or intermediate Japanese language or culture class, or for high school/university students studying the form and beauty of haiku.
