This project aims to reveal human exchange networks in the Kamigata literary circles in the mid-to-late Tokugawa period.
In this study, we focus on two sets of records: The entries in Myōhōin Hinamiki, the long-term record of Myōhōin Temple of the Tendai school in Shichijō, Higashiyama, Kyōto, that relate to the imperial prince Myōhōin-no-miya Masahito (1768–1805), who formed a literary salon in the late Tokugawa period, and the collection of poems—Rokujō eisō—by Ozawa Roan (1723–1801), a central figure in Kamigata poetry circles.
This research was supported by JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research 17H02310.
Data related to Rokujō Eisō will be added at a later date.
This project aims to provide a new perspective on the history of early modern literature by clarifying aspects of the creation and development of literature and art in the Kamigata literary circles in the middle and late Tokugawa period, focusing on various “places” and human interactions.
Based on Myōhōin Hinamiki, we have collected and visualized data on the interactions of people involved in the literature and arts of the imperial prince Myōhōin-no-miya Masahito from 1776 to 1796. These data will show us the interactions among scholars and literary figures associated with Masahito and the “place” where art and literature were produced.
Also, we focus on the people and “place” that appear in the poetry gatherings and poetry contests recorded in Rokujō Eisō. In addition to ya Masahito, the “places” surrounding Ozawa Roan, who interacted with various literary figures and painters, are interwoven to reveal images of literary and artistic exchange and its creation.
