Description - Far Beyond the Field by Makoto Ueda
A collection of haiku by Japanese women, this volume includes translations of 400 haiku written by twenty poets from the 17th-century (Basho's school) to the second half of the twentieth. By reading chronologically, the reader comes away with an overview of the way in which this seventeen-syllable form has established itself from its inception to the present. For each poet, Ueda provides a brief biographical and critical headnote, followed by twenty haiku for each.
