The Unswept Path is a diverse gathering of American poets who have chosen the haiku as one of the forms in which they write. This anthology presents the many faces of the haiku. Each poet chosen has worked the territory of the haiku into a personal landscape, and they offer a panorama of images and sound, joy and sadness, recollection and thought. The Unswept Path is wonderful introduction to the art of the haiku for the writer and reader alike.
