Abstract

Examined through the lens of evolutionary literary criticism, or "biopoetics," haiku exemplifies several evocritical ideas about the adaptive functions of art. It is an exercise in "making special," or marking significant rituals, a means of promoting social bonding, and a kind of cognitive play that exercises our abilities in symbolic thought.
