"Modern Japanese poetry began in 1882 with the translation of Western poems into Japanese. The form of poetry that developed as a result of the influence of theWest was called shi. However, shi is not simply Western Style poetry; nor can it be accurately described simply as free verse, though it varies greatly in form compared with the regularity of the traditional tanka and haiku. Shi is in effect all modern Japanese poetry aprart from tanka and haiku and kanshi (Chinese poems) ; it is mainly written in free form and often in colloquial language, and many of the poems reflect the cultural movements of the West. This anthology contains mostly shi poems, with a few examples of tanka and haiku in new forms. " Biographical Notes by A. R. Davis. Bibliography. Bookseller Inventory # 36646

Item Description: Book on Demand, Miami, 2013. Perfect binding. Book Condition: NEW. Dust Jacket Condition: NEW. 5.8" x 8.3". In English language. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Micropoetry is a genre of poetic verse including twaiku (also known as twihaiku or twitter poetry) and captcha poetry, which is characterized by its extreme brevity. The novelist W. G. Sebald may have been the first to use the term "micropoem," in reference to the poems of about 20 words in length that made up his 2004 work, Unrecounted. The more recent popularity of "micropoetry" to describe poems of 140 characters in length or shorter appears to stem from a separate coinage, as a portmanteau of "microblogging" and "poetry" in a notice on Identica on January 23, 2009, announcing the formation of a group for fans of poetry on that microblogging service. A subsequent notice linked to an example of micropoetry by another user, which was clearly lyrical but didn't appear to fit any preexistent form such as haiku or tanka.

Item Description: MBT,, Guilford, Connecticut, 2005. Original Wraps. Book Condition: As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 60 p. 50 ill. from photographs (3 color) of fences, gates and gateposts, mostly from the Colonial and Federalist period (with some later examples) in the town of Guilford, Connecticut, a distinctive Connecticut village with one of the largest numbers of seventeenth and eighteenth century houses in New England, including the oldest surviving stone house. The photographs, reminiscent of the work of Wright Morris, are handsomely composed and printed. Accompanying the photographs is a selection of experimental poems by the photographer in a variety of styles (haiku, tanka, quatrain, acrostic, cinquain, diamante, epitaph, naani, shaped poem, Lanturne, Tyburn, etc.) with a discussion of the basic characteristics of each type and an introductory statement on photography, poetry and the architectural character of Guilford. The poems and photographs interact, with each poem representing a literary equivalent of its visual photographic twin. Includes biographical note on the photographer-poet. A stunning first book and a remarkable achievement for an author just turned seventeen at the time of publication. Bookseller Inventory # 014201

Item Description: Columbia University Press, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 179 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. In the literary and artistic milieu of early modern Japan the Chinese and Japanese arts flourished side by side. Kodojin, the Old Taoist (1865-1944), was the last of these great poet-painters in Japan. Under the support of various patrons, he composed a number of Taoist-influenced Chinese and Japanese poems and did lively and delightful ink paintings, continuing the tradition of the poet-sage who devotes himself to study of the ancients, lives quietly and modestly, and creates art primarily for himself and his friends. Portraying this last representative of a tradition of gentle and refined artistry in the midst of a society that valued economic growth and national achievement above all, this beautifully illustrated book brings together 150 of Kodojin s Chinese poems (introduced and translated by Jonathan Chaves), more than 100 of his haiku and tanka (introduced and translated by Stephen Addiss), and many examples of his calligraphy and ink paintings. Addiss s in-depth introduction details the importance of the poet-painter tradition, outlines the life of Kodojin, and offers a critical appraisal of his work, while J. Thomas Rimer s essay puts the literary work of the Old Taoist in context. Bookseller Inventory # AAH9780231116572

Item Description: M.E.Sharpe, 2007. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry-- from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women's poems have created a sensation. This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love--which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry--but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more. Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English. Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission's 1999 literary translation award.

Item Description: M.E. Sharpe. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Japanese Women Poets: An Anthology, Hiroaki Sato, Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki ("Record of Ancient Matters") compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women's poems have created a sensation. This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more. Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English. Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission's 1999 literary translation award.

Un'ichi Hiratsuka ****** was among the first wave of Japanese artists to adopt the Western technique of cutting directly into the block. He made his own prints (and for many years, his own engraving tools) and is renowned in Japan for his mastery of wood carving techniques. Although he was a prolific creator of designs, Un'ichi produced few prints. With his concentration on rhythm, line, and the structure of forms, he came to prefer working in sumi and developed a repeated re-inking technique to achieve superior impressions; "Printing in black on white is often considered the first step of technique, but it is actually the final point." ******

Published by Tokyo, Meiji-Shôbô, handmade Japanese paper and cloth, the only edition, limited to 300 signed and numbered copies, no. 68 stamped on the justification slip, the English translation by George Saitô (Joji) who knew the artist and contributed the introduction and notes. EDITION NOTE: The book is believed to have been issued in a smaller printing than stated, based on a comprehensive examination of the sales literature and knowledge of Un'ichi’s working methods. "It appears that Hiratsuka often printed only as many copies of his works as were needed or requested over the years." [Keiko Moore (Un'ichi's daughter)] "Impressions of Hiratsuka's prints may occasionally have misleading edition numbers." [Fiorillo] (1951)
