The Disjunctive Dragonfly, a New Approach to English-Language Haiku by Richard Gilbert $17.00
<strong><i>The Disjunctive Dragonfly</i></strong>, a New Approach to English-Language Haiku by Richard Gilbert

“You might call this book Twenty-four Ways of Looking at a Haiku in the 21st Century. . . Professor Gilbert investigates how language experimentation in contemporary English-language haiku both connects and radically departs from 20th century conventions. With the heart of a poet and the mind of a critic, he includes over 270 poems to create an intriguing typology that characterizes . . . the signature feature of haiku, disjunction.” —Eve Luckring

"English-language haiku needs critics and Richard Gilbert is right for the job. The publication of ‘The Disjunctive Dragonfly’ in 2004 was a thunderbolt. This expanded version of the original identifies new disjunctive strategies for haiku and includes many examples to illustrate them." —John Stevenson

“While nowhere denying the value of objective realism, Richard Gilbert has helped demonstrate how the innovative, and yes, disjunctive core of haiku, like the force of life itself, moves in many directions and by all means possible (and sometimes impossible), illuminating both outer and inner landscapes, and what is held between. He has given us what has been sorely lacking: ‘a new vocabulary of haiku techniques . . .‘” —Peter Yovu
