Mixed Lecture/Discussion
Over the course of this module we will read and explore the work of a few major pre-modern Japanese poets in translation, putting them in their historical, cultural, and religious contexts along the way, but always focusing on the poetry itself. Group discussion is strongly encouraged. Poetry and poets covered will include that of the Manyōshū, Saigyō, Princess Shikishi, and Bashō. Time permitting, we can add to the list.

Required Texts

Saigyo' s Poems of a Mountain Home and Basho's The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches.
