Traditional Japanese Literature in Translation

East Asian Studies 116

Usual Description

This course explores literary texts, theatrical styles, and visual cultures from Japan’s rich premodern cultural history. We consider the literary arts that arose out of the aristocratic, samurai, townspeople cultures, and the contemplative poetry and prose of monks and nuns from the 7th-19th century. Themes include creativity, gender, aesthetic and poetics, as we read texts and view Kabuki and Noh plays emerging from the vibrant cultures of Kyoto, Kamakura, and Edo, and the archipelago’s landscapes. Field trip(s) required.
