About this title


anka is an ancient form of poetry originating in Japan. There is a growing number of English-language tanka poets and this an excellent collection of their work up to about 1993. In Japanese, tanka follow a 5-7-5-7-7 syllabic pattern; in English, it's more typically a short-long-short-long-long pattern of at most 31 syllables. There are examples here ranging from strict adherence to 5-7-5-7-7 to extremely minimalistic.
