Artikelserie på Haiku Foundations webb!

Jag har en ny artikelserie på The Haiku Foundations blogg, som kommer att publiceras varje fredag i sex veckor. The Kindness of Strangers – Haiku of Impoverishment and Alms är en serie som uppstått ur ett arbete med ett annat projekt som jag kallar Tiggarhaiku (som publiceras av Vi Värdelösa den 14 september). Jag har bland annat studerat tiggarpoeten Taneda Santoka och läst ett stort antal dikter som relaterar till tiggeri och fattigdom. Den svenska debatten om tiggare från andra stater i Europa inspirerade i första hand till de tankarna.  Under mitt läsande stötte jag på så många fantastiska haiku att det kändes synd att inte dela dem med andra.

Part 1 – On the value of begging

I have a new series of articles on The Haiku Foundation blogg, which will be published every Friday for six weeks. The Kindness of Strangers – Haiku of Impoverishment and Alms is a series, which resulted from my work with a different project, which I call Beggars haiku (will be published in Swedish only by Vi Värdelösa on September 14). I have studied the poet Taneda Santoka and read a great number of poems which related to begging and austerity. The Swedish debate on beggars from other European states was the initial inspiration for these thoughts. During my reading I came across so many wonderful haiku that it seemed a shame not to share them with others.
