Promotional Information

Far Beyond the Field is a first-of-its-kind anthology of haiku by Japanese women, collecting translations of four hundred haiku written by twenty poets from the seventeenth century to the present. By arranging the poems chronologically, Makoto Ueda has created an overview of the way in which this enigmatic seventeen-syllable form has been used and experimented with during different eras. At the same time, the reader is admitted to the often marginalized world of female experience in Japan, revealing voices every bit as rich and colorful, and perhaps even more lyrical and erotic, than those found in male haiku.

About the Author

Makoto Ueda is professor emeritus of Japanese at Stanford University. He has written, translated, or edited fourteen books, including Modern Japanese Tanka and Light Verse from the Floating World.


"fluid translations and careful selection...even scholars for whom gender is not a burning issue will find this volume a welcome and up-to-date survery" -- P. F. Kornicki, "Monumenta Nipponica"
