First brought to prominence more than three hundred years ago by the Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō, haibun is a form of poetic expression still in its infancy in the west. Anderson captures the spirit of Japanese haibun with formidable accuracy, and her work effortlessly incorporates the Japanese aesthetics of wabi and sabi, as she delves frankly into her own personal experience.“If haibun didn’t exist, it’s possible that Hortensia Anderson would have had to invent it” —Jim Kacian
