This suffered a bit by comparison to The Essential Haiku Versions of Basho Buson Issa by Robert Hass Editor particularly at the beginning I felt like the translations weren t great but as I read I got used to the translator s style I even came around to the use of rhyme It was kind of interesting to see poems I was familiar with translated slightly differently And I found some new favorites too More poets are included hereMy favorite part of this book is the focus on language every haiku has a note with the original Japanese and a literal translation and sometimes a little information about the meaning or the connotation of certain words or phrases Henderson also spends a little time talking about the structure and grammar of the Japanese language and what that means in reference to the poetry I appreciated that a lot I also enjoyed that Henderson focused somewhat on the structure of Haikus This book was written in the 1950s and takes as it s starting point that the audience is completely unfamiliar with haikus and Japanese culture I found that helpful even though I already know some things I found the commentary on the poetry concrete than some I have read However there still seemed to be a lot of cult of personality going on as well as some vague undefined and fluctuating standard of what a good haiku is I did actually like and appreciate the author introducing his personal enthusiasm at times So overall a little bit of a mixed bag but lots of worthwhile stuff in here Definitely worth a read But if you are only going to read one haiku anthology then read The Essential Haiku Versions of Basho Buson Issaby Robert Hass Editor instead
