The Humours of Haiku
(ed. David Cobb)
ISBN 978 0 9565725-4-7 Iron Press, UK, 2012, 75pp.
A collection of 240 haiku by over 100 poets, selected and edited by David Cobb
to illustrate the range of emotions that haiku may generate.
"Senryu are a robust presence in the collection. The term 'senryu', however, appears nowhere in the book except in a footnote to the introduction. Fine. Cobb's point of view follows what has become common practice in the West over the past few decades. Senryu's subject matter — human nature and behaviour — have become directly absorbed into the haiku genre."
Michael McClintock, Modern Haiku,USA.
"...the aim to create an affective, accessible anthology has undoubtedly been achieved."
