One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each (Hardback)

£45.00

Product description

One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each: A Translation of the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, by Peter McMillan. Foreword by Donald Keene. Hardback, published by Columbia University Press. First edition, 2008.

Compiled in the 12th century, the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu is one of Japan's most quoted and illustrated works. The text is an anthology of 100 waka poems, each written by a different poet from the 7th century to the middle of the 13th century, when Fujiwara no Teika, a renowned poet and scholar, assembled the collection.

Peter McMillan's poetic translation captures the original emotions of these poems. They are accompanied by calligraphic versions in Japanese and line drawings depicting the individual poets. Explanatory notes place the poems in context, and an appendix includes both the poems' Japanese and romanized versions.

Hardback with dust cover, both in excellent condition, like new.
