A challenging study offering a new perspective on classical Japanese poems and how they interact with and are part of material culture

This generously illustrated volume offers a fresh perspective on classical Japanese poetry (waka), including many poems treated here for the first time in a Western-language publication. Edward Kamens examines these poems both as they relate to material things and as things in and of themselves, exploring their intimate connections to artifacts and works of visual art, sacred and secular alike, and investigating the unique rhetorical messages and powers accessed and activated through these multimedia productions. This book makes a major contribution to Japanese literary and cultural studies.
Edward Kamens is Sumitomo Professor of Japanese Studies at Yale University and author of Utamakura, Allusion, and Intertextuality in Traditional Japanese Poetry. He lives in New Haven, CT.
