A waka anthology( Book )

in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of waka, the classical tradition of Japanese poetry, from its beginnings in ancient song to the sixteenth century. The first volume, which contains almost 1,600 songs, and poems, covers the period from the earliest times to 784, and includes many of the finest works in the literature as well as providing evocative glimpses of the spirit and folkways of early Japanese civilization. The volumes include extensive commentary to introduce the poems and provide historical, biographical, and literary information. The translations of the poems aim to be both faithful to the original and alive as literature, with great attention paid to nuance, cadence, and tone. The texts drawn upon for the poems in the first volume are the ancient chronicles Kojiki, Nihonshoki, and Shoku Nihongi; the fudoki, a set of eighth-century local gazetteers; Man'yoshu, an eighth-century compendium of early poetry; and the Bussokuseki poems carved on a stone tablet at a temple in Nara. All poems are presented in facing romanization and translation. The volumes include glossarys, notes, bibliographies, conversion tables, indexes of poems by author, first-line indexes, and general indexes

The arts of Honʼami Kōetsu : Japanese Renaissance master by Kōetsu Hon'ami( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American audiences will have the rare opportunity to see outstanding examples of the work of the celebrated early seventeeth-century Japanese artist Hon’ami Kōetsu (1558–1637) in the first-ever comprehensive survey of the artist’s work outside Japan in the exhibition and accompanying catalogue The Arts of Hon’ami Kōetsu: Japanese Renaissance Master, published by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Nearly 100 objects ranging from calligraphy, handscrolls, and printed books to ceramic teabowls and lacquerwork will be drawn from collections throughout Japan, Europe, and the United States. A spectacular 27-foot-long scroll decorated with gold and silver wood-block designs of ivy, grasses, and wisteria, and brushed with classical Japanese love poems in Kōetsu’s calligraphy, the newest addition to the Museum’s collections of East Asian art, will also be on view. This multi-talented genius inspired his contemporaries and exerted profound influence on generations to come by revolutionizing the visual effects of classical poetry scrolls, working with the artist Tawaraya Sotatsu to produce striking designs, over which he wrote his distinctively bold calligraphy. Kōetsu’s interest in calligraphy led him to design beautiful lacquer boxes to hold the essential tools of East Asian writing: brush and inkstone. One such lacquer box, with a characteristically bold motif of a single deer on a striking gold and black background is in the collection of the Museum and will also be featured in the catalogue
