Yone Noguchi compares hokku to “a tiny star … carrying the whole sky at its back.” He compares an English poem to “a mansion with windows widely open, even the pictures of its drawing-room visible from the outside. It does not tempt me much to see the within.” He says, “simplicity and the power of suggestion offer a superior poetic form.”
