Windfall of Apples: Tanka and Kyoka (Au Press)

The venerable tanka and her upstart cousin kyoka mingle with Kerouac's American pop haiku in five-liner imagist poems and linked sequences. In Windfall Apples, Richard Stevenson mixes East and West with backyard barbecue and rueful reflection.
Tradition, innovation and playfulness are an important part of poetry. Poems express a range of feelings in multifold forms that might try to overturn time or misfortune, or chase away tedium and make the spirit more nimble. Richard Stevenson combines tradition, innovation and playfulness, and reaches back through the centuries and brings the Japanese poetic forms of tanka and kyoka to life in twenty-fi rst century North America. He translates these poetic forms through time and space and gives them a contemporary feel.
