9781434325068: Road Poems and Sky Haiku

The book is divided into three sections. The first is Sky Haiku, a collection of pieces in which, over decades, Ed Manual has attempted to write in a tradition going back many centuries in Japan. It is of the short three-line poem which might, as poet Ezra Pound said, "present an image". Ed has drawn inspiration from the early haiku masters. The second section is Road Poems, a group of "free verse" (without regular rhyme, meter, etc.) poems penned while driving through various states. The final section, Other Poems, completes the work with a mix of free verse pieces culled from different stages in a writing career, up to the present. The work is complemented by a selection of artworks by artist Tom Mahady, who joins Ed here in their second collaboration. Tom also enhanced the booklet Spring Haiku with eight collage/ink drawings, and produced the cover art for the present book. "With haiku as fine as Branches reaching for buds, buds for leaves. Ed Manual alerts us to much pleasure to come in the highly imagistic, sharply realized poems which follow in this rich and substantial collection - one, surely, worth our keenest attention and admiration". - Lucien Stryk, poet, translator and Asian scholar

About the Author:

A Chicago area native, Ed Manual taught swimming and lifesaving while an undergraduate at Northern Illinois University, where he earned a BA in English. For about one year he was a youth supervisor with the state correctional system. He performed onstage several times in community theater. Following the 1982 publication of a booklet of his poems, Spring Haiku, a local newspaper (the Aurora, IL Beacon-News) featured an interview with Ed, leading him to give poetry readings. One reading was given to the local chapter of the American Association of University Women. For another, he joined numerous other poets for an "open microphone" event at Northwestern University, where he read his haiku poems. He gave a few private lessons in writing haiku. Now residing in California, he has pursued several causes there as a political activist, and has taken formal training in acting. He completed the layout and graphic design tasks for the present book and also for Spring Haiku.
