Saeko Ogi (editor) / Four Poets in a Boat

  • Saeko Ogi (editor) / Four Poets in a Boat
‘This book showcases the tanka of four contemporary Japanese poets. It emerges at a time when global interest in the genre is flourishing and it offers guidelines and inspiration by example for those who read and write this genre in English. Its editor, Saeko Ogi, has selected the contributors carefully. The poetic voices of two men and two women of diverse ages, backgrounds and interests come together in unity but retain individuality. Their writing demonstrates just how effectively this diminutive genre can document our lives, address humanitarian concerns, and home in on the essence of all we experience or observe. When shared, they can promote harmony and understanding around the world.’ - Beverley George
