0 Reviews
Two of Australia's most accomplished tanka artists collaborate in this bi-lingual (English / Japanese) collection. Saeko Ogi, whose primary language is Japanese but who is at home in English, and Amelia Fielden, whose primary language is English with wide experience in Japanese, write their tanka, in both languages, in response to those of the other. By linking ideas, suggestions and atmosphere, they give their tanka an interpersonal dimension and a cross-national flavour. The poems are sensitive, delicate and varied. This collection will be a source of enjoyment to the tanka aficionados in both countries, as well as those coming new to the form.
