The art of tan renga is not often practiced in English, and when it is most often there is only an example or two. This pioneering book, a collaboration between two well-known and cogent poets associated with haiku, will go a long way toward creating an awareness of the resources available in the form. Peter Newton and Kathe L. Palka respond to each other like dance partners, eliciting an energy and excitement that will be as pleasing to reader as author. Quite unlike anything else available.
“A Path of Desire brings new life and accomplishment to English-language collaborative tanka. By using the process of the tan renga, Kathe L. Palka and Peter Newton have tapped the well of creativity in two persons to bring fresh waters to their poetry.”
