Chiyo-ni: Woman Haiku Master
'Chiyo-ni - Woman Haiku Master' is a book in English on a woman haiku poet. Chiyo-ni (1703-1775), also known as Kaga no Chiyo, is perhaps Japan's most celebrated female haiku poet. A student of two of Basho's disciples, she worked in an age when haiku was largely a male domain. As a poet, painter, and Buddhist nun, she lived a vibrant life while creating poems of crystalline clarity and delicate sensuality. This volume presents more than one hundred translation of her finest seasonal haiku, renku (linked verse), and haibun (travel poems). Illustrated with artwork by Chiyo-ni and others, 'Chiyo-ni' also includes illuminating essays on her life and art, informative notes, and a glossary of haiku-related terms.
