Title:The Onin War: A Translation with Commentary
Authors:Ryan, Joseph
Contributors:East Asian Languages and Literature (department)
Date Issued:15 Jan 2014
Publisher:University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract:The Onin War was first published in 1958 by Ikenami Shotaro, an author famous for breathing life into the historical characters he painted in his numerous period pieces. Born in 1923 Tokyo, he is known for his essays, novellas, novels, plays, critiques, and commentaries. The 1958 Naoki Prize committee was made up of leading nad veteran authors, one of them, Kaionji Chogoro, Kigi Takataro, Yoshikawa Eiji, and Murakami Genzo left comments regarding Ikenami's story. THeir advice and opinions were unanimous: the work was simply too short for the amount of characters introduced and the span of history covered. They recommended he turn it into a full-length, epic work rather than limit himself to condensing the course of over thirty years to the space he had alloted himself.
