Editorial Reviews

Makoto Ueda has given us several great gifts with his book on women haiku poets: introductions to a host of writers previously unknown to readers in English; concise and eloquent translations of their work--Ueda's translation simply gets better and better with each book and makes it look easy--and a revised view of the history of haiku. Its richness increases with every reading.
