Further information

Text samples, tables of contents, bibliographical information, sources of supply (not all elements available at the same time)

62 haiku, 12 haiku for New Year, 16 for spring, 16 for summer, 17 for autumn and 14 for winter, plus a haiku that follows the 5 chapters and the table of contents and concludes the book. The author introduces a haiku from Issa to his book.
The haiku are in strict brevity. Graf focuses closely on what is necessary. The texts gain in conciseness, in sharpness, in expression.
Recommended as a paradigm of an old work; also the comparison with the author's first book of haiku poems: “Haiku in the evening wind”.
