I had been looking for what I consider the definitive article on haiku and could not find it
until I read of this book and saw Jane Reichhold’s name. Here’s a link to that article: Reichhold’s article
(As published in the Autumn, 2000 issue of Frogpond, Journal of the Haiku Society of America.)”
A review of the Basho book can be found at The Edge of Humanity Blog
It is a 431 page book with explanations of the Haiku. Yes, I ordered it!
(There is a wide assortment of prices but I found it for $17 on Amazon.
..hard back, 1st edition).
A quote from the review: “Jane Reichhold who is an American haiku poet and translator, dedicated over ten years on the book”.
