Q: Dear Luca, I have questions about kire (cutting words) in ELH. In Japanese haiku a kireji can be placed at the end of L1, L2, or L3. Can we do the same to English Language Haiku? Is there any example for this in ELH? Thank you so much for your kind answer. Leggi tutto “The Kireji or Cutting Word”
Q: Dear Luca, I want to ask about the use of metaphor in haiku. Some say that modern haiku allows the author to use metaphors, whereas haiku who do not use metaphors are classified as ‘classic haiku’ or ‘traditional haiku’.
Is it true that modern haiku allows the use of metaphors in it? What distinguishes modern haiku and traditional haiku? Thank you for your answer. Leggi tutto “Metaphor and Haiku”
