"Modern Japanese poetry began in 1882 with the translation of Western poems into Japanese. The form of poetry that developed as a result of the influence of theWest was called shi. However, shi is not simply Western Style poetry; nor can it be accurately described simply as free verse, though it varies greatly in form compared with the regularity of the traditional tanka and haiku. Shi is in effect all modern Japanese poetry aprart from tanka and haiku and kanshi (Chinese poems) ; it is mainly written in free form and often in colloquial language, and many of the poems reflect the cultural movements of the West. This anthology contains mostly shi poems, with a few examples of tanka and haiku in new forms. " Biographical Notes by A. R. Davis. Bibliography. Bookseller Inventory # 36646

Item Description: Book on Demand, Miami, 2013. Perfect binding. Book Condition: NEW. Dust Jacket Condition: NEW. 5.8" x 8.3". In English language. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Micropoetry is a genre of poetic verse including twaiku (also known as twihaiku or twitter poetry) and captcha poetry, which is characterized by its extreme brevity. The novelist W. G. Sebald may have been the first to use the term "micropoem," in reference to the poems of about 20 words in length that made up his 2004 work, Unrecounted. The more recent popularity of "micropoetry" to describe poems of 140 characters in length or shorter appears to stem from a separate coinage, as a portmanteau of "microblogging" and "poetry" in a notice on Identica on January 23, 2009, announcing the formation of a group for fans of poetry on that microblogging service. A subsequent notice linked to an example of micropoetry by another user, which was clearly lyrical but didn't appear to fit any preexistent form such as haiku or tanka.

Item Description: MBT,, Guilford, Connecticut, 2005. Original Wraps. Book Condition: As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 60 p. 50 ill. from photographs (3 color) of fences, gates and gateposts, mostly from the Colonial and Federalist period (with some later examples) in the town of Guilford, Connecticut, a distinctive Connecticut village with one of the largest numbers of seventeenth and eighteenth century houses in New England, including the oldest surviving stone house. The photographs, reminiscent of the work of Wright Morris, are handsomely composed and printed. Accompanying the photographs is a selection of experimental poems by the photographer in a variety of styles (haiku, tanka, quatrain, acrostic, cinquain, diamante, epitaph, naani, shaped poem, Lanturne, Tyburn, etc.) with a discussion of the basic characteristics of each type and an introductory statement on photography, poetry and the architectural character of Guilford. The poems and photographs interact, with each poem representing a literary equivalent of its visual photographic twin. Includes biographical note on the photographer-poet. A stunning first book and a remarkable achievement for an author just turned seventeen at the time of publication. Bookseller Inventory # 014201

Item Description: Columbia University Press, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 179 mm. Brand New Book. In the literary and artistic milieu of early modern Japan the Chinese and Japanese arts flourished side by side. Kodojin, the Old Taoist (1865-1944), was the last of these great poet-painters in Japan. Under the support of various patrons, he composed a number of Taoist-influenced Chinese and Japanese poems and did lively and delightful ink paintings, continuing the tradition of the poet-sage who devotes himself to study of the ancients, lives quietly and modestly, and creates art primarily for himself and his friends. Portraying this last representative of a tradition of gentle and refined artistry in the midst of a society that valued economic growth and national achievement above all, this beautifully illustrated book brings together 150 of Kodojin s Chinese poems (introduced and translated by Jonathan Chaves), more than 100 of his haiku and tanka (introduced and translated by Stephen Addiss), and many examples of his calligraphy and ink paintings. Addiss s in-depth introduction details the importance of the poet-painter tradition, outlines the life of Kodojin, and offers a critical appraisal of his work, while J. Thomas Rimer s essay puts the literary work of the Old Taoist in context. Bookseller Inventory # AAH9780231116572

Excerpt: Because of the nature of onomatopoeia, there are many cross-linguistic cognates of onomatopoetic sounds. The following is a list of some conventional examples: This may differ according to the species of frog common in each language's speech area. A sign in a shop window in Italy proclaims 'No Tic Tac'. Thunderstorm Waka (¿¿, literally 'Japanese poem') or Yamato uta is a genre of classical Japanese verse and one of the major genres of Japanese literature. The term was coined during the Heian period, and was used to distinguish Japanese-language poetry from kanshi (poetry written in Chinese by Japanese poets), and later from renga. The term waka originally encompassed a number of differing forms, principally tanka (¿¿, 'short poem') and choka (¿¿, 'long poem'), but also including bussokusekika, sedoka (¿¿¿, 'memorized poem') and katauta (¿¿, 'poem fragment'). These last three forms, however, fell into disuse at the beginning of the Heian period, and choka vanished soon afterwards. Thus, the term waka came in time to refer only to tanka. Japanese poet and critic Masaoka Shiki created the term tanka in the early twentieth century for his statement that waka should be renewed and modernized. Until then, poems of this nature had been referred to as waka or simply uta ('song, poem'). Haiku is also a term of his invention, used for his revision of standalone hokku, with the same idea. Traditionally waka in general has had no concept of rhyme (indeed, certain arrangements of rhymes, even accidental, were considered dire faults in a poem), or even of line. Instead of lines, waka has the unit (¿) and the phrase (¿). (Units or phrases are often turned into lines when poetry is translated or transliterated into Western languages, however.) Choka consists of 5-7 Japanese sound units phrases repeated at least twice, and concludes with a 5-7-7 ending. The briefest choka documented was made by Yamanoue no Okura in the Nara period, and goes: ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿ 96 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781156566473

Item Description: M.E. Sharpe, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 157 mm. Brand New Book. Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women s poems have created a sensation.This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more.Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English.Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission s 1999 literary translation award.

Item Description: M.E. Sharpe, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 157 mm. Brand New Book. Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women s poems have created a sensation.This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more.Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English.Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commission s 1999 literary translation award.

Recollections of Travel (Tabi No Kaisô) ****** Example 68 of this exceptional and rare artists' book solely carved from the woodblock by Un'ichi with 31 original works, 19 prints and 12 tanka poems. Twelve Japanese places were the inspiration for a linked poem and sumi print, each on their own leaf, signed with Un'ichi's seal (c). The 7 decorative woodcuts include 5 designs after forms in Nature and two landscapes distinguished by their structural treatment of ukiyo-e themes. The works are a high point of Unichi's printmaking, exemplifying his mature personal integration of traditional Japanese culture with modern European art including the innovations of Die Brücke, and the photography of Karl Blossfeldt and Albert Renger-Patzsch. ******

Un'ichi Hiratsuka (Unichi) ****** A leader of the early 20th century Sosaku Hanga printmaking movement, Un'ichi first exhibited in 1916 and is believed to have influenced nearly every important Sosaku Hanga artist. He studied with Ishii Hakutei and Okada Saburosuke and trained in wood carving with Igami Bonkotsu, learning also to carve picture frames. Un'ichi made his own prints and is renowned in Japan for his mastery of wood carving techniques. He is credited with developing tsukibori (poking strokes) technique, in which an aisuki chisel blade (small with a square-end) is rocked side-to-side in short strokes, producing uneven edges, imparting an energy to the line and a volumetric quality to the relief not otherwise possible. ******

Published by Tokyo, Meiji-Sh˘b˘, handmade Japanese papers and cloth, the only issue, translation into English by George Sait˘ (Joji) who knew the artist and contributed the introduction and notes, no. 68 stamped on the mounted justification slip, limited to no more than 300 signed and numbered copies, but believed to have been issued in a smaller printing (from a comprehensive examination of the sales literature, also, Fiorello notes, "impressions of Hiratsuka's prints may occasionally have misleading edition numbers" and from the testimony of daughter, Keiko Hiratsuka Moore, "It appears that Hiratsuka often printed only as many copies of his works as were needed or requested over the years.")

He was awarded the Order of Cultural Merit, never previously given to a print artist, in 1970 and was the first artist awarded the Order of the Sacred Treasure in 1977.
