This collection of American poetry done in the Japanese Haibun style is a wonderful addition for any lover of haiku or other eloquent poetry styles. Haibun is a beautiful Japanese form of autobiographical poetic prose accompanied by verse, usually haiku. Here, Bruce Ross, past president of the Haiku Society of America invites us on a journey of self-discovery with over twenty-five North American contributors who use this form to explore such issues as the self, the emotional nature of love, and dwelling in a particular place as well as the revelation of unknown places. Journey to the Interior is the first anthology specifically devoted to original haibun written in English and reflects some of the most moving, personal, and spiritual literature being produced.
