Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694) In The Haiku Year, Tom Gilroy’s forward discusses mid-20th century roots of Japanese-inspired American haiku: Jack Kerouac and Michael McClure and the San Francisco poetry Renaissance started the concept of Western haik. ittle three-line poems. ittle three-line poems aiming towards a kind of Zen enlightenment. The Beat Generation was the right time to make a transition to a new kind of haiku, with all that pot-smoking and coffee-drinking and scatting and Japanese haiku books laying on couches next to Whitman and William Carlos Williams. A kind of combustion.

The Haiku Year exists because seven friends made a pact to write haikus every day for a year as a way to keep in touch with each other. The finished product is a document of a year’s worth of moments filled with joy, sorrow and unexpected beauty. The book y creates the sense that present moments do not just disappear and provides a visceral understanding of how these moments fit into the context of the rest of our lives.The short verses in Haiku Year stab and elate. They hint at both the transcendence and mediocrity of everyday life. The power of Michael Stipe’s southern, twilight drenched lyrics from early REM albums is present in the volume. Douglas A. Martin’s sparse yet descriptive prose gleams throughout. The thoughtful storytelling of Grant Lee Phillips is pared down to the simplest words to describe an instance. The Haiku Year is about the appreciation of small moments of beauty, ultimately adding up to the appreciation and respect not only for our individual lives but for all the lives that intersect with ours. The Haiku Year effortlessly urges readers to enjoy details and to let spare moments pierce through the numbness of everyday routine.
  • A friend recommended this book, and while I found the book itself fairly interesting by far the best part has been the haiku circle we have created. We do it via email, and try to send a haiku every day to the mailing list. There are about 8 of us who do it regularly, another 4 or so who occasionally participate. It is by no stretch classic haiku, but taking a moment from our day to polish into a limited semi-formal pattern (we try to stick to 5-7-5, but not always, and no other rules - it's haiku if you say it is). We've just completed our first year, and it is very satisfying not only to receive, but also to take that daily meditation to focus on one moment, image, or thought, and try to shine it up to a sharable form.

  • Not the best haikus I have ever read, but it was a very genuine undertaking. Michael Stipe is one of the remaining American prides.

  • Excellent copy that came fast! Thanks. Great service! RC

  • a beautiful book. a fun read, elegant, thoughtful funny and at times, a little melancholy. i loved it.
    it has spawned a similar project in my life.


  • If you wish to see the best of contemporary English haiku this is not the book for you. However, it does have an appropriate place in the library. First, the haiku provide interesting insights into the lives of the authors. In keeping to the concreteness of the form, one see the authors' experiences more directly. They write more of what happened rather than what they think about the experience in retrospect. Second, the volume provides an example of an interesting approach to a personal journal - an approach than gains values over time rather than becoming the musings of someone you know longer feel you are. So in a strange way, I recommend this book.

  • Not many people would argue that Japanese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism aren't valid or relevant religions. They may not be much like the "original" forms of Buddhism but they are Buddhism and they have much to say (to say the least.) They are just also "japanese" and "tibetan" and unavoidably have a context.

    I am a white American leftist yankee writing haiku, not some Japanese guy from a hundred years ago living on Mount Fuji. The syllable thing is bs anyway, since English syllables do not correspond in length to Japanese syllables.

    Haiku Year authors never claimed to be Basho or William Higginson for that matter. If you read the Haiku Year you will see that its main purpose is to show a year of friendship and observation (with all its warts) and hopefully inspire other folks to write as well. Its is not a guide to writing haiku or held up as the pinnacle of haiku writing.

    Muddy Waters is so much better than the Rolling Stones, but

    "Dead Flowers" , "Monkey Man", and most of the Stones stuff rocks on its own merits. It also just might lead you back to Muddy Waters.

  • This collection includes some of my favourite poems rendering a very wide range of different situations, observations and feelings. To be precise, "The Haiku Year" is a collection of senryu rather than haiku and only few of the poems have any reference to the season. Instead, most of them focus entirely on different aspects of human life. Many of the poems deal with urban life and a modern life-style. Another thing which makes "The Haiku Year" different from many other collections is its tone. It is less formal and shows less decorum than any collection I have ever seen, which I think is great. But if you object to bad language etc, you may find it too provoking. However, to those who celebrate every aspect of human existence, I heartily recommend it.

  • Super cool book!
