Haiku and the Great War

If you’re interested in the beginnings of haiku in the West, you may care to go and read an article I have written for Haiku NewZ.

The first part covers the beginning of World War 1, the vogue for Japonisme, the emergence of haiku in France, and the authors of early haiku in English, while the second part looks at haiku about Gallipoli and Anzac Day by New Zealand and Australian poets.
