- quote
Hoshinaga Fumio:
Selected Haiku from Kumaso-Ha
Along with research interests in Japanese language and history, Hoshinaga has been concerned with the local history and deep tribal past of central Kyushu, a concern which frames his latest effort, Kumaso-Ha, a ninth haiku collection published by Honami Shoten in autumn 2003. The creativity of the haiku in Kumaso-Ha are striking: many are innovative in approach, presenting social and philosophical perspectives with deeply humane insight.
... You know, here in Kyushu, the Kumaso, the ancient tribe of central Kyushu, have been conquered and eradicated, but in my haiku, I want to rebuild, revive the Kumaso world—the era of the Kumaso and the essential nature of the Kumaso.
