Remapping Genre: Spanish Jaiku of the Early Twentieth Century
Landeira, Joy
Hispania, v93 n4 p615-623 Dec 2010
At the beginning of the twentieth century a new subgenre of poetry written in Spanish, but rooted in Japanese literary tradition, began to emerge in the works of Spain's vanguard and Generation of 1927 poets and among young modernist poets in Mexico and South America. Transmitted first through France and later directly from Japan, the popularity of jaiku continued to grow throughout the Hispanic world. This study explores the earliest appearances of jaiku written in Spanish, its historical place in the first half of the twentieth century, and the aesthetic characteristics of this subgenre.
