At age twelve, Chiyo-ni's studied under two haiku poets who had themselves apprenticed with the great poet Matsuo Bashō, and many in her time saw her as one of Bashō's true heirs, both in her poetry and in her humble attitude of warm awareness toward the world and her simple living  .

Haiku is celebrated as a concise form of poetry able to convey a singular moment with great clarity. While haiku most often depicts the natural world, when focused on the elements of love and sensuality, haiku can be a powerful vehicle for evoking the universal experience of love. dusky autumn- for someone yet to come a single chair. yagate kuru mono ni banshu no isu hitotsu Akito Arima.

In pre-modern Japan, as here years ago, a woman's place was in the home. She was expected to produce children and obey her mother-in-law. So it's no surprise that most noted Japanese artists, artisans, writers and poets were male. But not all. In fact the best known work in the history of Japanese literature was written by an 11th century woman known to us as Lady Murasaki, who wrote what is often considered the world's first novel - The Tale of Genji.

According to the translators, Chiyo-ni, who wrote 1700 haiku, was a celebrity in her own time (18th century). Clearly that celebrity extended beyond her lifetime because two great 19th century print designers - Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi - saw fit to further immortalize her in their art. In Yoshitoshi's case Chiyo-ni appears in a print from his great "100 Aspects of the Moon" series.

Here's a sample of her work:

one mountain after another
unveiled -
the first mists

You may know that classical haiku follow a three-line pattern of 5,7,5 syllables respectively. Sometimes that pattern translates well to English, sometimes - as here -not. The book contains a number of fine essays - and illustrations of classical scrolls and woodblock prints (though unfortunately not in color).

If you'd given me a sheaf of Chiyo-ni's haiku before I read this book, I might have had a "so what?" moment rather than a "haiku moment." Writer Patricia Donegan and translator Yoshie Ishibashi teamed up to present us with an invaluable scholarly introduction to the life and work of the great Chiyo-ni. The 65 pages of biographical and cultural information bring Chiyo-ni and her contemporaries vividly to life, providing a context for the 100 haiku to follow. For example, Chiyo-ni was friends with prostitutes, and this was not considered unusual for a Buddhist nun; prostitutes were not shunned, for one thing, and both nuns and prostitutes had greater freedom than most of the women of Japan of that era.

The poems are presented in sections for the four seasons, each one in both phonetic and script Japanese, with an English translation, identification of the kigo (the season word), and sometimes notes on Chiyo-ni's life at the time she wrote the poem, the mood being expressed, or cultural references with which a Westerner would not usually be familiar.

The book is paperback but lovingly produced. An indispensable reference work for haiku readers and writers, and for those interested in the lives of women who managed to find personal and artistic freedom within societies that greatly restricted the lives of women.

And she cried when she got it. I only leafed through it before I gave it to her, but the parts I read were wonderful.

This biography of woman haiku master Chiyo-ni is interwoven
with beautiful translations of her haiku as well as intelligent background material on the form itself. A must-have.

Pat Donegan is a serious American poet who has taught with Allen Ginsberg and others at Naropa Institute and studied haiku in Japan with the then-leading Japanese master, Seishi Yamaguchi. Her co-translator, Yoshie Ishibashi, is descended from an old line of poets and artists and served as Seishi's and Donegan's translator, absorbing a deep appreciation for haiku in the process.
Ishibashi's research and Donegan's excellent sense of the English needed for the translations, plus the many rich extras in this carefully designed and organized book (full kasen by Chiyo-ni and colleagues, excellent intro, etc.) all combine to make this a must-have for any serious student of haiku. Goes a long way toward redressing the unwarranted bad rap laid on Japanese women haiku poets.
Notes by William J. Higginson (The Haiku Handbook, The Haiku Seasons, Haiku World, etc.)

This book is a great resource for beginning Japanese students.

English : Romanji : Kanji with Hiragana alongside.

Beautifully written haiku. It makes me feel guilty for using haiku as a comedic device. Sorry Chiyo-ni. Won't happen again.
