The poetry and poetics of ancient Japan by Makoto Ōoka( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the noblewomen of the Xth and XIth centuries who freed Japanese literature from the domination of formal Chinese writing to create a poetry shaped by spoken Japanese. Many centuries later it was again women, this time courtesans and prostitutes, who through popular song liberated a poetry more and more restricted by increasingly rarified conventions. In this remarkable book, the poet Ooka Makoto, who is also, in Donald Keene's words, a major critic, perhaps the finest in Japan today, opens the great library of poetry anthologies compiled by Imperial order. He also recreates in detail the social, political, and cultural realities surrounding the development of Japanese poetry from ancient until modern times
