Book Description Lee Low Books Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For hundreds of years, school children in Japan have been introduced to poetry through the work of Issa. Born in 1763 on a farm in central Japan, Issa began writing poetry as a young child, inspired by his deep love for the natural world. Later in his boyhood and throughout his life, poetry was also Issa s refuge in times of joy and in times of suffering. Matthew Gollub s poignant rendering of Issa s life and over thirty of his best-loved poems, along with Kazuko Stone s sensitive and humorous watercolor paintings, make Cool Melons a classic introduction to Issa s work for readers of all ages. With authentic Japanese calligraphy, a detailed Afterword, and exhaustive research by both author and illustrator, this is also an inspirational book about haiku, writing, nature, and life.
