This project will culminate in a book on the poetry and life of the medieval Japanese courtier and major poet Fujiwara no Teika (1162-1241). Teika excelled in the thirty-one syllable waka form and was active as anthologist, copyist, critic, judge of poetry contests, diarist, and poetry tutor to senior courtiers and military aristocrats. He was a pivotal figure in the creation of a radically evocative, allusive style that was criticized by his rivals at court but later came to exert a decisive influence on Japanese poetry and poetics. This monograph, the first of its kind in a language other than Japanese, will provide a comprehensive view of the aesthetic, social, and political functions of waka poetry in Japan ca. 1200. It will explore a range of related topics, centered on poetry and poetics and extending to reception history and the role of China in the medieval Japanese imagination.
