Anthology Alert: Kamesan's World Haiku Anthology on War, Violence and the Violation of Human Rights

'This landmark collection, 
interweaving hundreds of poetic voices from around the world, 
creates a powerful statement for peace and against war.'

Kim Goldberg

This volume of world Haiku has just been published by Kamesan Books. The volume has been edited by Dimitar Anakiev in Radovljica, Slovenia. Anakiev was born in Belgrade, Serbia, and is a co-founder of the World Haiku Association. The new anthology contains 903 Haiku from 435 poets in 48 countries, writing in 35 languages. The accompanying artwork has been created by Kunihara Shimizu from Tenri in Japan. The collection begins with Basho in the 17th century and goes on to include much contemporary work. My Haiku, written in response to the vision of a convoy of tanks on the M4 Motorway, is listed as 298 on p.134.   

'This is a multicultural book against war and violence 
that connects people from different nations around the world.' 

Dimitar Anakiev
