Reading this also, The Haiku Handbook: How to Write, Teach, and Appreciate Haiku. This is a very specialist book which I wouldn't recommend unless you have a very specific interest teaching different forms of Haiku. Reading this also, I believe will have improved my own Haiku and made me fall.

The Haiku Handbook is the first book to give the reader everything needed to begin writing or teaching haiku. Not only are the four great Japanese masters of the haiku represented (Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki) but also several major Western authors not commonly known to have written haiku.

The Haiku Handbook is the first book to give the reader everything needed to begin writing or teaching haiku. It presents haiku poets writing in English, Spanish, French, German, and five other languages on an equal footing with Japanese poets. Not only are the four great Japanese masters of the haiku represented (Basho, Buson, Issa, and Shiki) but also several major Western authors not commonly known to have written haiku. The book presents a concise history of the Japanese haiku, including the dynamic changes throughout the twentieth century as the haiku has been adapted to suburban and industrial settings. Full chapters are offered on form, the seasons in haiku, and haiku craft, plus background on the Japanese poetic tradition, and the effect of translation on our understanding of haiku. Other unique features are the lesson plans for both elementary and secondary school use; and lists of haiku publishers and magazines (in several languages). The Handbook concludes with a full reference section of haiku-related terms, bibliography, and a comprehensive season-word list to aid in understanding and appreciating Japanese haiku.

I received a copy of The Haiku Handbook- 25th Anniversary Edition as a Christmas gift. I am so glad to finally have a copy of this classic haiku resource book for myself, instead of borrowing one from our local library.

For anyone who writes, teaches or just enjoys haiku poetry, this is a must have book. One that you will refer to again and again, for inspiration, historical references and so much more.

A nice presentation for this edition too. Makes a perfect gift. ;<) I certainly thought it was.

Only one negative on the book presentation...I did note a couple of typos on the first few pages, something that the publishers might want to correct before reprinting this book.

'The Haiku Handbook' is essential reading for those wishing to comprehend the haiku. If only every grade school teacher that decides to do a haiku writing lesson would read this book first. Too many come out of such lessons thinking that writing a haiku is just a matter of counting up syllables.

This book goes into the traditions of haiku at great length and enables a serious student to understand what a haiku actually is, and how to tell a good one from a second-rate one.

For poets who'd like to try writing haiku, this book gives an overwhelming amount of information. I'd recommend going slow and reading and rereading useful sections rather than dashing through it and trying to apply everything you've learned all at once.

One useful feature of the book is an extensive list of traditional season-words (a traditional haiku always has a season-word). Looking over the list may help you find a season word that can act as a poetry prompt for your next haiku.

I have a tendency to be too wordy in my writing, so to learn more focus and control, I have been studying (and writing) haiku. The Haiku Handbook has been an engaging resource for me in those efforts. Each of the book's five sections contains a wealth of ideas and information that both challenges and inspires:

Part One: Haiku Old and New [A great introduction to the experience of haiku and to Japanese Masters. The "Why Haiku" is helpful in clarifying one's purpose for writing such brief poetry.]

Part Two: The Art of Haiku [Natural themes, the form and craft of haiku; this is the section that I like best, and I repeatedly refer back to these pages. I especially enjoy how the author discusses the difference in Japanese and English languages.]

Part Three: Teaching Haiku [How to teach haiku writing to children, lesson plan included]

Part Four: Before and Beyond Haiku [Haiku and its uses]

Reference Section [With Season-Word List & Glossary]

Overall, this is a worthy product for anyone who wishes to delve into haiku more deeply than the introduction that most Westerners receive.

Excellent book on haiku poetry. A lot of historical info about the prominent Haiku writers. The book transitions from haiku history to instruction, with a sharp focus on exemplar haiku and the poetic characteristics of a well-written haiku. I wish there was more of a focus on the instructional aspects than the historical and cultural evolution of haiku. Nevertheless, Higginson's book is a great read and I intend on reading it a second time.

This is it. This is the one you were looking for. You may buy others, but this goes into Japanese poetry with good information and examples, including prose forms. Get this, and thank yourself later.

Very comprehensive, but too detailed for the simple overview of Haiku that I was looking for. Maybe more geared for a literature major or expert.

At first, I was a little sceptic about this book. A handbook about poetry? Poetry that originated in a country with a completely different language and culture? But soon I discovered it is really an encyclopedia about Haiku: its history, both in Japan and abroad, its different currents, how to write it, how to teach it. An very useful extra is the analysis of its structure, going beyond the 5+7+5 syllabes. Really a must for everybody aspiring to read, write or teach haiku.
I bought this book because I wanted to know about haiku. My wish to know more was fulfilled: this book provides a wonderful history of haiku both old and new, discusses the art of haiku, the craft of haiku, has a section on teaching haiku, and a section on what lies beyond haiku. I get inspired reading any single page of this book!
