Now a global poetry, the haiku originated as a Japanese verse form that flourished from the 16th to 19th centuries. While generally known for its brevity and its use of natural imagery to make Zen-like observations about reality, the haiku is much more: it can be erotic, funny, crude and mischievous. Adam Kern, Japanese scholar and editor of The Penguin Book of the Haiku, and renowned haiku poet Paul Conneally talk to Nicolette Jones about this misunderstood art form.
