  • Hockey Haikuby John Poch; Chad Davidson

    St. Martin's Press 2007; US$ 7.39

    The greatest collection of hockey-related poetry this or any house has ever published, and a watershed moment in American letters. Hockey haiku is the most rarefied of the haiku genres, and it represents the perfect union of graceful brutality, ordered chaos, and the blood that courses through our veins...and onto the ice. Hockey Haiku: The... more...

  • Office Haikuby James Rogauskas

    St. Martin's Press 2007; US$ 7.39

    Poems! About your office! We work hard at our jobs, and in return we are frequently plagued by bad coffee, strange smells, paper cuts, other people, and, at least once a week, Mondays. So what better way to tackle the absurdities of the modern workplace--to get a little peace!--than with Zen poetry? In the first poetry collection to do just that,... more...

  • Windfall Applesby Richard Stevenson

    Athabasca University Press 2010; US$ 16.95

  • On Love and Barleyby Matsuo Basho; Lucien Stryk

    Penguin Books Ltd 1985; US$ 11.27

    Basho, one of the greatest of Japanese poets and the master of haiku, was also a Buddhist monk and a life-long traveller.

  • Selected Poemsby Rabindranath Tagore

    Penguin Books Ltd 2005; US$ 16.91

  • The Penguin Book of Japanese Verseby Geoffrey Bownas; Anthony Thwaite

    Penguin Books Ltd 2009; US$ 15.50

    Poetry remains a living part of the culture of Japan today.

The congenial attitude comes from a poetical history of about a millennium and a half. This classic collection of verse therefore contains poetry from... more...
