Fluences (introduction)


Fluences is a section of troutswirl devoted to studying haiku, and haiku-like work, by 20th and 21st century western poets. Each installment will take a closer look at a poem, or a group of poems, by a poet who has either dabbled in haiku, been influenced by haiku, or whose work has had an influence, in some way or another, on 20th and 21st century English-language haiku.

Fluences is overseen by Nick Avis.

  1. Many thanks for the tip that an easy way to take down info is to use cut and paste. It works fine.

  2. From time to time I find things on THF that I wish I could copy for use when not on the computer. There are times when it is difficult for me to be on the computer and I enjoy having that information available…(one of the things I love about Montage.)
    These discussions on “Fluences” seem to be to me something that would be of great value in that form.

  3. This is a wonderful idea – it definitely fills an important gap in the coverage which THF provides.

    I can’t wait to see what articles come of this. I’ve already been reading the one on Pound and, though I’ve not yet finished, just want to let you know that I’m enjoying it a great deal. It’s nice to see a serious effort to discuss the relationships between haiku and the rest of the western poetic tradition.
