In the sixteenth century, Zen monks in Japan developed the haiku, an
unrhymed poetic form consisting of 17 syllables arranged in three
lines. Now, in One Hundred Great Books in Haiku, David Bader has
applied this ancient poetic form to the classics. From Homer to Milton
to Dostyevsky, the great books are finally within reach of even the
shortest attention spans!
