The Genius of Haiku: Readings from R. H. Blyth on Poetry, Life, and Zen

Tokyo: The Hokuseido Press, 1995.

Paperback. 8 1/4" X 5 1/2". 146pp. Mild shelfwear to stiff paper wraps. Binding is firm, tight, and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. A very nice copy of this distillation of R. H. Blyth's main themes from over 6,000 pages of critical writing on the subject. "Blyth is sometimes perilous, naturally, since he's a high-handed old poem himself, but he's also sublime--and who goes to poetry forr safety anyway?" --J. D. Salinger. Very good. Item #5462
