  • Ryan Garrison – Hello!

    Hello! I'm Ryan Garrison, 20 years old, from North Carolina. I'd never sent out any poetry for publication until recently, but have been writing in other forms for a few years. An interest in Archaic Greek lyric and Poundian imagism led me about two weeks ago to the haiku of Yone Noguchi (who had possibly introduced haiku to Pound; https://terebess.hu/english/haiku/noguchi.html), inspiring me in the creation of some of my own (though with a much more American conception of nature, and a taste for maximalism, word-play, attention to set meter, etc. which I've read has its place in Japanese haiku as well). Excited to both read and contribute!

      If you haven't read already, you might like Richard Stanyhurst's onomatopoeia-heavy "translation" (transcreation?) of the first four books of Virgil's Aeneid as well as Peter Boodberg's work on the first part of the Daodejing (https://sites.google.com/site/rantext/taoism), have been thinking about both in writing haiku that is "simple" in the Wakean sense (etymological plunder and amalgamation)
