Description: This chronological survey of Japanese literature covers antiquity to the 18th century. We will consider the emergence of, contexts for, and aesthetics behind a variety of literary mediums including myths, prose, poetry, travelogues, diaries, and warrior tales. Conducted in a lecture/discussion format, this course focuses on literary works, though we will have opportunity to consider visual and aural interpretations and adaptations of many of the “great” works of classical Japanese letters. This course is intended to help students develop an appreciation for Japan’s literary heritage, while encouraging a sophisticated and comparative understanding of the prominent themes and motifs of literary texts. No prior knowledge of Japanese or Japan is required or expected. All texts will be read in English translation.
