Abstract [en]

his essay will examine the different approaches by Ezra pound to compose haiku. Including collected information enforced by the required features of haiku to decide whether Ezra Pound managed to compose a haiku correctly or not. My opinions will be based on a analyse and a comparison between Ezra Pound’s Poem “In a Station of a Metro and Matsuo Basho’s haiku “An Old Pond”.  

In just a few lines a haiku author should be able to address questions about life and nature in relation to the author with symbols and philosophy. This essay is a reading of many authors understanding about how haiku should be composed. With those aspects it is feasible to both understand and decide if the features of haiku are fulfilled or not. The interpretation of Ezra Pound’s poem gives the impression and a reminder of haiku, yet it lacks in, what is known as the haiku attitude, that is, a special way of observing nature without manipulating it with own imagination and personal opinions. In contrast to Matsuo Basho’s haiku who implicates the true message and portrays natures natural behavior and relates that to human expression. 

The resultant understanding about how the required features of haiku should be treated leads to that Ezra Pound’s poem is made by an imagist and cannot be categorized as haiku. The haiku author is an observer who sees the view through its own perspective and relate that experience to feelings and thoughts: therefore, nature is a priority and intended in each meaning of the haiku. Ezra Pound in contrast, is not preoccupied with nature and only mentioned a petal on a wet, black bough.
