About the Author

YOSHINOBU HAKUTANI is Professor of English and University Distinguished Scholar at Kent State University, Ohio, USA. and author of many books, including Cross-Cultural Visions in African American Modernism: From Spatial Narrative to Jazz Haiku.


"Hakutani's study is of interest to those concerned about haiku poetics or writing original haiku as it traces haiku from Basho to its reception in the English-speaking West (Noguchi, Yeats, Pound, Kerouac, Wright) to contemporary innovative experiments influenced by aspecific cultural focus such as jazz (Sanchez, Emanuel)." - Bruce Ross, author of How to Haiku, A Writer's Guide to Haiku and Related Forms and editor of Haiku Moment: An Anthology of Contemporary North American Haiku
