Evening in the Plaza: Haibun & Haiku
by Jeffrey Woodward
 
 
$12.95 US / £8.50 UK / 10.00

Evening in the Plaza contains forty-one haibun and forty-eight haiku, selected from the published writings of over a decade, by Jeffrey Woodward, a leading exponent and theorist of haibun, and founder and general editor of Haibun Today. The origins of haibun, or the wedding of prose and haiku, can be traced to 17th century Japan but this literary genre gradually fell out of favor and practice in its homeland; it has been revived and naturalized internationally by English-language poets in recent decades.
