Item Description...

The Unswept Path is a diverse gathering of American poets who have chosen the haiku as one of the forms in which they write. This anthology presents the many faces of the haiku. Each poet chosen has worked the territory of the haiku into a personal landscape, and they offer a panorama of images and sound, joy and sadness, recollection and thought. The Unswept Path is wonderful introduction to the art of the haiku for the writer and reader alike.

Contributors include: Christopher Herold, Elizabeth Searle Lamb, William Higginson, Penny Harter, Margaret Chula, Edith Shiffert, Michael McClure, Diane DiPrima, Sonia Sanchez, Steve Sanfield, Patricia Donegan, John Brandi, and Cid Corman.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a sweeping success  Feb 9, 2006
THE UNSWEPT PATH is a great collection of haiku and writings about haiku by contemporary American poets. It's the richest stew of haiku meditations since R.H. Blythe's pioneering work, revealing the haiku as a living vital form. Editors John Brandi & Dennis Maloney have done a brilliant job of gathering writers who exhibit a range of attitudes & approaches toward the haiku. Unlike other haiku related writings in English, this collection does not emphasize the formal elements of the tradition; rather the emphasis is on the haiku as a mode of perception. The reader is encouraged, i.e. inspired, to use it to purify their poetry & their minds. Brandi's brilliant essay sets the tone, evoking the spirit of Basho & Issa in ways related to our own times and establishing freedom and egolessness as haiku's most fertile ground. His work alone is worth the price of admission, as is the selection included by the late Cid Corman. We see familiar writers like Michael McClure, Diane DiPrima, Sonia Sanchez and Patricia Donegan in new ways, and writers new to me like Christopher Herrold and Penny Harter also shine. This book is a real treat for lovers of poetry. It's illuminating & entertaining--a sweeping success.
