senryuu, senryū 川柳 Senryu in Edo

Senryū is named after Edo period haikai poet Senryū Karai (柄井川柳, 1718-1790),
whose collection Haifū yanagidaru (誹風柳多留) launched the genre into the public consciousness.

The main introduction to the formal poetry of Edo is here :
. WKD : Haiku, Senryu, Zappai (俳句, 川柳, 雑俳) .

Senryu were anonymous and thus a kind of "twitter" of our modern times.
They are closely related to the manners, customs and people of the town and therefore best understood with the cultural background of the time they appeared.
