Shokan Tadashi Kondo and Raffael De Gruttola read their renku
Shokan Tadashi Kondo is an internationally-known renku poet and scholar. By means of his scholarship and the renku sessions that he leads, Tadashi has done as much as anyone to raise the level of art in English-language renku.
One of his frequent collaborators is Raffael De Gruttola, the conference coordinator for HNA 2001. In the picture above, Tadashi and Raffael are reading "bouys bob," a renku that they wrote together. Click this link to see the full text of "bouys bob."
