Sample text

Commanding a panoramic observation of the upper and lower worlds, Rossetti’s cosmic ballad must have played a major role in the creation of Yosano Akiko’s expansive poetic universe. ” The piece, apparently rivaling the positivity of the world, intensifies laconism by superimposing ominous images. The repeatedly verbalized negativity turns to be allegorically too dense, without given syntactical explication in the restricted 31 syllables. The density equals the strategic equivocation by which the reader simply romanticizes the author-speaker’s real state of mind: The harp I sold out Tenaciously conveyed to me The buzzes of a pathetic piece; A black lily snapped In the devilish darkness.

The pathetic fusion was expressed in the selected vocabulary that followed “strong restrictions for the combination of words” (Kawamoto, “Haiku no shigaku” 85–87).
