BARE BONES School of Haiku

I discovered this a while ago. Although I don’t subscribe to Zen philosophy, which permeates the series, I found it an excellent introduction to haiku. It gave me an understanding of the history, the basic principles, and the possibilities of the form, as well as the differences between Japanese and English and traditional and modern haiku. It also included practical exercises and tips on how to catalogue haiku. A lot more than bare bones!
