IRON Press continues its tradition of publishing the best contemporary haiku with this vividly written first collection from Milton Keynes poet Paul Grant

Paul Grant’s haiku, often declining the form’s more traditional subject matters, have a distinctly urban flavour, further emphasising how the Japanese verse form is being effortlessly absorbed into our own literature.

Haiku is now taught in the majority of schools and is a form young people readily take to and emulate.
