Juxtapositions, The Haiku Foundation’s journal of haiku research and scholarship, announces the release of Juxtapositions 4.1. Articles include:

  • “The Pig and the Boar” by Clayton Beach, an investigation into the limits to brevity and simplicity in haiku
  • “Sonia Sanchez’s ‘magic/now’” by Meta L. Schettler, which explores the eclectic approach to haiku taken by one of this generation’s most renowned poets and cultural figures
  • “The Postdomestic Woman in Roberta Beary’s The Unworn Necklace by Joshua Gage, wherein the author explores the way in which women who have experienced divorce express themselves in film, art, and now, haiku
  • “Texts Within Texts”, by Richard Tice, which considers the underlying texts within a text being read and the relationship between them, a process particularly rich in haiku
  • “Matter and Method: Emerson, Haiku, and the Way of Zen” by Donald Eulert, which takes as its departure point the journals of Ralph Waldo Emerson and explores them for ‘haiku’ sensibility
