Columbia Magazine poet recognized by university professor
Special to ColumbiaMagazine.com
For more than a thousand days a haiku by Robert Stone has appeared on Columbia Magazine. Last November a book was published with the following statement in the acknowledgments:
"A new source [of inspiration] is a talented and prolific Tennessee poet named Robert Stone, who is a specialist on English versions of the haiku form. I met Mr. Stone at a theatrical event in Nashville, and he began sending me samples of his poetry, which I greatly appreciate and admire."The book is "Quixotic Haiku: Poems and Notes" by Edward Friedman, professor of Spanish and of comparative literature at Vanderbilt University.
It is a collection of about 130 haiku reflecting on Miguel de Cervantes' "Don Quixote." Mr. Stone says his favorite of Dr. Friedman's haiku is:
You should not hate meThis project was unknown to Stone until he received a copy of the book yesterday. "You never know whom you are influencing." The two met at one of the new play readings in the Centennial Black Box Theater in Nashville, Tennessee, and then again at a performance of King Lear. "You never know whom you may meet in a theater audience."
Stone's haiku for a while now have been reflections on the Anne of Green Gables books. This week will see the end of "Anne of the Island," the third books of the series.
