  •  WS Merwin Translates Buson (1+ / 0-)

    Read that Merwin will have a translation of Buson's haiku poetry out by April.  Should be interesting.  Buson took up the torch after Basho and was also the founder of a school of painting.  Hoping that it will be in both English and Japanese.  All poetry in translation would include the original language if I were King of the Forest.

      and an erudite one at that!  Wish I had a glimmer of fine intellect, but I was born without the poetry gene among other great losses to my character.

      I'm such a Barbarian when it comes to poetry what I like best about haiku is that it's short.

      FWIW, you should be King of the Forest.  I shall remain a scarecrow, alas.

        I just like confusion and rolling strange sounds around in my head.

        Now if only we could find a tin man and a girl from Kansas to travel the yellow brick road with.
