Matsuo Bashō was a Japanese poet and is considered one of the most famous exponents of haiku poetry. His style is characterized by clear and straightforward language, expressing profound and complex feelings and moods.
Bashō's poems are mostly written in haiku form, a Japanese form of poetry consisting of three lines. The first and third lines have five syllables, while the second has seven. His haikus are often inspired by impressions of nature and the seasons and represent a moment of introspection and contemplation.
Bashō's poetry is known for its clarity, clearness and precision. His haikus are usually metaphorical, conveying a profound meaning beyond the poem's content. Bashō's poetry continues to significantly impact Japanese culture and literature today.
