Atlas Poetica 24

A Journal of World Tanka

Authored by M. Kei

Tanka is music. From the most ancient days in Japan, tanka was chanted and sung in public performances. In the modern era, tanka has been performed as everything from spoken word to symphonic concerts. That musicality is the focus of the current issue, featuring the introduction of musical notation to represent the rhythms of tanka, as well as the use of 'sampling' to introduce bits of well-known songs into tanka sequences, the call-and-response patterns of worship into responsive tanka, and the awareness of music in our lives as well as our poetry.

As usual, we present international tanka, tanka in translation, tanka prose, tanka sequences, articles, book reviews, and announcements. A large journal devoted to the world of tanka and its related forms, readers will find kyoka, gogyoshi, ryuka, sedoka, and cherita in our pages as well as our generative force, tanka poetry of place.
