Review by

Though a short book (78 pages), the collection is a good one: classic haiku from the 15th to 19th century with a wide selection from many different authors. I hate footnotes, but this book puts all of its commentary into footnotes -- nearly every poem has a substantial footnote. Nevertheless, the commentary is interesting, so squint your eyes and start reading...
