Renga is a Japanese form of collaborative poetry that refers primarily to nature and the seasons. The practice seems to have begun in the 12th century. The first renga were written at social gatherings that included people from all classes of society; these events were often likened to a group of people drinking saké together.
Five poets contributed to the renga for Exposed, following rules on the number of syllables and number of lines used in each link. Traditionally, each link in the renga relates only to the one that precedes it.
