He first discovered haiku in 1958 in San Francisco where he heard Gary Snyder mention it at a poetry reading. He returned to the East Coast the following year and continued composing haiku.

The Haiku Anthology book. The book just came to me this weekend while I was on a haiku retreat in Seabeck, W. and it's awesome. In all seriousness, this book may be the only case in which I read the introduction before I actually started reading the rest of it. And I actually enjoyed it.

"Generous, irreplaceable. . . . It's an eye-opener and a who's-who of haiku today."―Providence Sunday Journal

Originally a Japanese form that flourished in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, haiku has recently experienced tremendous growth in popularity in the English language. The Haiku Anthology, first published in 1974, is a landmark work in modern haiku, honoring a genre of poetry that celebrates simplicity, emotion, and imagery―in which only a few words convey worlds of mystery and meaning. This third edition, now completely revised and updated, comprises 850 haiku and senryu (a related genre, usually humorous and concerned with human nature) written in English by 89 poets, including the top haiku writers of the American past and present. A new foreword details developments since the publication of the last edition. "Each of these perfect little poems will come as a revelation to the uninitiated reader and will bring joy to the haiku enthusiast. . . . This is an exceptional selection of English-language haiku at its finest."―Library Booknotes

I recently started readying Haiku through Patricia Donegan's Haiku Mind. I was looking for another book which dealt primarily with North American writers as I found these were my favourites in her book. This Anthology comprises 850 haiku and senryu written in English by 89 poets, including the top haiku writers of North America past and present. As the book says "It is simply the best, most extensive collection of English language haiku in existence and I agree.

This is a wonderful Haiku book to learn from.
  • Galanjov
It is very hard to discuss the quality of haiku since its ability to resonate in our emotions through imagery is so subjective. Let me just say that I discovered new poets I never heard of before who made a powerful impression on me. That alone is worth five stars to me.

Loved it. For van den Heuvel is a master poet and collector, and this collection really stands out. A must for any haiku fan eager to see how contemporary masters do it.
  • Oso
I love it! I had never thought of purchasing an anthology before this one, I am very glad I did. It gave me new insight into writing and reading Haiku. There are several more I plan on purchasing.

5-7-5 is not the standard for most of the best haiku practitioners in English. The only place where 5-7-5 is the majority is in the classroom when taught by English teachers who've made no study of the form beyond: "5-7-5, season word." For one thing 5-7-5 onji in Japanese is not the same as that number of syllables in English. Some aim for 3-5-3, as closer to the length of the Japanese poem, or want a poem that can be said in one breath. A rigid adherence to 5-7-5 often leads to poems that are stretced and squeezed in unnatural ways to fit, and also to poems being considered haiku because of the syllable count. You learned 5-7-5 in grade school. You're a little older now. :>
Books were in excellent condition even though they were classified used. Arrived in very good time. Thank you.
