Following in the footsteps of R.H. Blyth’s famous commentaries on Japanese haiku, this unique British anthology combines appreciation, analysis and imagination, initiating the “unfolding process of discovery” that takes us deeper into the meaning of haiku.

Features 366 haiku and senryu by 71 poets, each with a short paragraph of commentary.

“There is only one word for Stepping Stones – Excellent! What shows through, I think, is your love of haiku.”
Pamela Brown, letter to the author.
