Kakinomoto no Hitomaro (fl ca 690) is generally regarded as one of the pre-eminent poets of premodern Japan.

This work offers the first substantial piece of English-language scholarship to examine the actions and the memorization of the Heike (Ise Taira). 'Lovable Losers' contextualizes and deconstructs representations of the Heike to show how such representations were created in specific contexts in response to specific needs, and to demonstrate that the representations themselves came to create and sustain a particular kind of culture
