I want to read the work of the old Japenese masters but would like some advice on which are the best translations.  I don't want to spend good money on translations which are inferior.  Thanks,

Andy

Dear Andy

It is here and it is all free online.

i would recommend anything translated by Hiroaki Sato, Haruo Shirane, or Makoto Ueda.

Scott Watson's done some cool work with Santoka's oeuvre.

And *Essential Haiku*, edited by Robert Hass is a nice collection, easy to get, and affordable.  

Scott Watson's Santoka and Shiki collections are sharp.

There's David G. Lanoue's Issa website: http://haikuguy.com/issa/

Also, a new collection called *Haiku Before Haiku* just came out translated by Steven Carter which is interesting, mostly for historical reasons.

Hi Andy,

There is a lot of good reference from Gabi san.  Her blog is an excellent start and she is an excellent translator who has a passion for Japanese art and literature.  (AND it's for free on the internet through her links).  You may want to start a file or folder and collect the links an material.  There is no restrictions on copy and paste for your own personal edification and she's very gracious about giving permission for being sited if used in a publication.  If you want to support the many authors and scholars who have produced reputable books, Scott's recommendations are quite sound.  Any of the books by William Higginson have references that are also worth exploring.  Good luck and happy exploring!
