Title: The Concepts Of Love In Classical Japanese Poetry
Authors: Kaneshige, Gladys
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Although this paper is far from adequate in its discussion of the concepts of love in classical Japanese poetry, I hope to outline a general idea of what aspects of society have influenced love poetry, how love was therein defined, what imagery and themes were commonly used for the various definitions and during the different stages of love, and the possible reasons for the chosen imagery. Aside from these objectives, I cannot say what the merits of this paper are for the readers. Speaking for myself, this paper has given me the opportunity to find out more about classical Japanese literature and think about the various aspects which it introduces. Not only did I gain additional knowledge of the field, but also the discipline of thinking out a difficult question and the determination to continue my endeavor until it is completed.
