In Basho's FootstepsStreaming Video - 2006
More than three centuries ago, the seminal haiku poet Matsuo Basho traveled Japan in a spiritual quest for enlightenment. In this down-to-earth program, haiku enthusiasts from around the world including award-winning haiku poet and English teacher Visnja McMaster and haiku translator Judit Vihar, professor of Japanese studies at Eotvos Lorand University, follow in the master's footsteps as they open themselves to the haiku moment at the very places where Basho himself found inspiration. Excerpts from Basho's impressions of his journey, The Narrow Road to the Deep North, are included, as are haiku written by the trip participants. The therapeutic value of haiku-writing for traumatized children and adults is also addressed.
