In this history of traditional Japanese haiku, the development of the poetic form is fully explored- deepening this history is a look at the role of haiku paintings, called haiga. From the great haiku poets like Basho, Buson, and Issa, as well as the twentieth-century poets like Santoka, all the leading masters created paintings, or at least calligraphy, with their haiku, and the interaction of text and image is especially interesting since the two are so closely interwoven. Full of examples of the poems and the paintings, this is one of the few histories of haiku that also explores the visual aspect of the art.
