Hakutani offers a highly original, intensive study of the importance of haiku poetry in Jack Kerouac's development as well as its significance for a wide range of other American writers such as Ezra Pound, Richard Wright, Gary Snyder, and Sonia Sanchez. Grounded in a rich understanding of the history of Japanese haiku and its underpinnings in Buddhist and Confucian thought, this book will be an invaluable resource for both specialized scholars and general readers. -- Robert Butler, author of Contemporary African American Fiction: The Open Journey A penetrating, readable examination of Kerouac's spontaneous and spiritually infused one-breath poetry. With clarity and scholarly precision Hakutani tells the story of how the haiku of Japanese literary tradition morphed into an exciting, international poetic genre of which Kerouac became one of the earliest and most influential masters. -- David G. Lanoue, Xavier University In this innovative study, Hakutani explores Kerouac's formative encounters with classic and modern haiku, situating his work within a vibrant tradition of East-West literary exchanges, from New England Transcendentalism to modernism, and from the Beat movement to African-American jazz haiku. A major contribution to transpacific American literary scholarship. -- Anita Patterson, Boston University
