Masaoka Shiki (1867 – 1902) is one of the four great Japanese haiku poets along with Matsuo Basho, Yosa Buson and Kobayashi Issa. Here is a larger selection of 270 of his haiku in German for the first time. The literary translations by the artist and Japanologist Thomas Hemstege are supplemented by an introduction by Dr. Finn Harder.
