On Haiku @ Tutt

On Translations, Haiku, and Poetry

In this 1996 edition of The Writing Life, Roland Flint, then serving as Maryland Poet Laureate, interviews Robert Hass.  Hass reads some of his translations, and speaks of the history of haiku, and the form's "amazing clarity." He reads several haikus in quick succession to show the affect. His works include In the Garden: A Wedding Anthology of Poetry and Prose  and The Essential Haiku: Versions of Basho, Busan and Issa.  Robert Hass  served as Poet Laureate of the United States from 1995 to 1997 and as a Chancellor of The Academy of American Poets from 2001 to 2007.
