  • Waka

    There is a great resource produced by Dr Thomas McAuley of the School of East Asian Studies at the University of Sheffield for those interested in Japanese waka. Here is the url for the Saigyo translations.

        This article has a bit on kobun/bungo (classical Japanese) for those who are studying Japanese, it has some additional references at the bottom. Even if you are pretty fluent in modern conversational Japanese, waka poses serious challenges to understanding. It is however, worth the effort to enjoy the really rich, dense layered language of Heian poetry.
