The Art of Haiku Its History Through Poems and Paintings by Japanese Masters, by Stephen Addiss

it’s here
Shambhala Publications 2012

 I have read poems, sumi-e paintings, and scholarly work on the haiku by Stephen Addiss, the most recent being Shambhala’s 2009 Haiku An Anthology of Japanese Poems, with Fumiko Yamamoto and Akira Yamamoto. Addiss thinks and writes as clearly as lake water seen through to the bottom, and all things submerged and swimming there cohere. Gratitude to A Longhouse Birdhouse for announcing the publication of this new book by Addiss.

Bishop’s “Pansies” watercolor, gouache and graphite on paper

Bishop’s largest and most finished recorded painting, a basket of pansies — the name derives from the French “pensée” — beside a pair of books, was a deeply symbolic gift from Bishop to her lover Lota de Macedo Soares, inscribed “L. de M. S. from E. B. 10-28-60.” In Shakespeare, the pansy, then known as heartsease, was associated with contemplation and love, the juice from its flowers most memorably used as an aphrodisiac in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. “In her simple ink drawings and watercolor sketches, often unfinished but always enchanting, one can find the style and matter of her poetry. A richly colored image of pansies beside a pile of books on a checkered tablecloth conveys her instinctive association of word and image. Bishop’s words become visible in odd angles of vision, the play with scale, the emotional language of colors, the affection for the humble.” — Bonnie Costello, Planets On Trees: Poetry, Still Life, and the Turning World (Ithaca, N.Y.: Cornell University Press, 2008), p. 84.
