Baseball Haiku: The Best Haiku Ever Written About the Game
Item No.: 151029


gift wrap?: 

Edited by Cor van den Heuvel and Nanae Tamura.

Like haiku, baseball is concerned with the nature of the seasons: joyous in the spring, thrilling in summer’s heat, ripening with the descent of fall, and remembered fondly in winter.

Featuring the work of Jack Kerouac, who penned the first American baseball haiku, Alan Pizzarelli, a major American haiku poet, and Masaoka Shiki, one of the four great pillars of Japanese haiku, who fell in love with baseball when he was a student in Tokyo.

Includes over two hundred haiku from America and Japan. One example: “winter reverie/the faint scent of bubblegum/on an old baseball card”—Ed Markowski.

Hardbound: 240 pp.
