Book Details

Bashô’s ‘Narrow Road to the Interior’, a world literary classic and probably the most crucial work of haibun was written at the end of the seventeenth century. Today, more than three hundred years later, the form is experiencing a renaissance world-over, even if it is sporadic and in insulated pockets. Red River Book of Haibun, with a collection of 102 haibun by 61 poets across the world, aims to help the form along this path of resurgence. With haibun’s relatively fluid nature in mind, this anthology has sought to represent writers of every ‘persuasion’ and every ‘school’. And thus, it is – in scale and ambition – quite unlike any haibun book in the world.
