Haiku are word paintings that pilot the reader beyond the image into a sacred realm. For a poem complete in just a few words, resonance becomes the keynote. In Sanskrit, the primordial sound in the cosmos is known as naad and its resonance as anunaad. According to ancient Indian texts, an instrument, including the human body, vibrates only to this timeless sound. The 746 haiku in this volume come from 26 countries. They resonate, each in a unique way - just for you!

As the last leader of the Chartist movement, Ernest Charles Jones (1819-69) is a significant historical figure, but he is just as well-known for his political verse. His prison-composed epic The New World lays claim to being the first poetic exploration of Marxist historical materialism, and his caustic short lyric ‘The Song of the Low’ appears in most modern anthologies of Victorian poetry. Despite the prominence of Jones’s verse in Labour history circles, and several major inclusions in critical discussions of working-class Victorian literature, this volume represents the first full-length study of his poetry. Through close analysis and careful contextualization, this work traces Jones’s poetic development from his early German and British Romantic influences through his radicalization, imprisonment, and years of leadership. The poetry of this complex and controversial figure is here fully mapped for the first time.
