Why?
  • This is by far the best translation of the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu to date: - Dolad Keene
  • Most high school pupils in 1960s-70s in Japan had been learned all these Hyakunin Isshu poems from memory. If there had been such wonderful English translation at that time, I could have learn both Japanese classic poems and English at one time.
  • 今までの小倉百人一首の訳として極めて優れたものである。- Donald Keene
  • 1960年代や70年代の日本のほとんどの高校生は百人一首を諳んじていたものである。もしこのような素晴らしい英訳が当時あったのならば、日本の古典と英語とを同時に学ぶことができたのに。
Resume
要約

>Top 0. Introduction:

  • The Ogura Hyakunin Isshu is a private compilation of poems by the renowned poet and scholar Fujiwara no Teika (1162 - 1241), which had been completed around 1237.
  • The Hyakunin Isshu is a concise history of Japanese poetry from 7th century to the middle of 12th. For hundred of years, it has been the most widely known and popular collection of Japanese poetry. Along with the Tale of Ise and the Tale of Genji, the Hyakunin Isshu is one of the three most influential classical works of Japanese literature. - Peter McMillan

0. 序文:

  • 小倉百人一首は、著名な歌人であり学者である藤原定家 (1162-1241)により個人的に1237年頃に編纂されたとされる。
  • 百人一首は日本における7世紀から12世紀半ばにかけての和歌の歴史そのものであり、日本の和歌のもっとも有名で広く普及してきた。日本文学の中では、伊勢物語、源氏物語と並んで日本の三大古典の一つとしてこの百人一首は位置している。(Peter McMillan)
