juxtareduced

Juxtapositions, The Haiku Foundation’s journal of haiku research and scholarship, announces the release of Juxtapositions 3.1. Articles include:

  • “Haiku and the Brain” by Stella Pierides, Hermann J. Müller, Jim Kacian, Franziska Günther & Thomas Geyer, which presents the first results of an interdisciplinary project, bringing together haiku poets and neuro-/cognitive scientists, to investigate the reading of English-language haiku (ELH) as a potentially paradigmatic material for studying the reception of poetic texts
  • “A Careful Poetics” by Ce Rosenow & Maurice Hamington, which seeks to contribute to the philosophical discourse of care studies and the growing interest in an aesthetic approach to care
  • “Red Tears” by Anna Cates, which discusses the crafting strategies Japanese haikuist Ban’ya Natsuishi uses to create emotional depth in three recent haiku collections
  • The Juxta Showcase: Suzuki Shizuko, featuring a profile and selected haiku of Japan’s “haiku hooker,” in versions by award-winning translator Hiroaki Sato
  • “Riddle Haiku” by Stephen Addiss, which explores the sub-genre of poems that ask (often implied) questions, and supply a unexpected but convincing answer
  • “Mixed Language Haiku” by David McMurray, which analyzes a recent haiku by U.S. President Barack Obama and contrasts it with other modern day bilingual poems selected from haiku journals and newspapers
  • “The Sound of Water” by Ian Marshall, an exploration of water as subject matter throughout the history of haiku

It also contains reviews of Raymond Roseliep: Man of Art Who Loved the Rose (Winchester VA: The Haiku Foundation, 2015), by Donna Bauerly, reviewed by Joshua Gage; and Issa and Being Human: Haiku Portraits of Early Modern Japan (New Orleans, LA: HaikuGuy.com, 2017), by David G. Lanoue, reviewed by Randy M. Brooks; as well as eight new haiga from a cadre of artists setting haiku by former U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins.
