9780231167185: The Sarashina Diary: A Woman's Life in Eleventh-century Japan (Translations from the Asian Classics)
Críticas:

As the first translation to do justice to the complexity of the Sarashina Diary, Arntzen and Ito's work offers a fresh perspective on premodern Japanese diary literature as well as an accessible yet scholarly window into Heian culture, the life of one woman, and the transformation of a life into literature. -- Christina Laffin, University of British Columbia, author of Rewriting Medieval Japanese Women: Politics, Personality, and Literary Production in the Life of Nun Abutsu This sparkling new version of the Sarashina Diary opens out an eleventh-century classic for twenty-first-century readers. Sonja Arntzen and Ito Moriyuki situate the diary culturally and historically, and their translation conveys both the vivid realism of Takasue no Musume's prose and the haunting melancholy of her poems. As the author herself says of Mount Fuji, this unique work 'looks like nothing else in the world.' -- David Damrosch, Harvard University Arntzen and Ito accept the theory, generally disregarded by twentieth-century scholarship, that the author of the Sarashina Diary was also the author of several court romances (monogatari), two of which are extant. Yet her diary makes no mention of these works, showing that the careful reader must pay as much attention to what Takasue no Musume does not say as to what she does. This translation presents a Sarashina unlike that of any previous English translation and is supported by an extensive introduction that thoroughly contextualizes the author and her work. -- Joshua Mostow, University of British Columbia A well-conceived edition of a poignant text that remains of both literary and historical appeal, with very good presentation of useful supporting material to go with the solid translation. Complete Review We can be grateful for this new translation... through long, thoughtful immersion, the translators have brought to life a world otherwise unavailable to the modern, non-specialist reader. Times Literary Supplement At last Sonja Artnzen, one of our most conscientious translators, has given us a new and weighty version of this beautiful and useful short classic... the lover of Heian letters - or of Japanese history, of women's writing from any place or time, of dreams - will find this book exciting. H-Asia With its extensive and insightful analysis, this excellent translation supplants the 1971 translation by Ivan Morris. CHOICE

Críticas:

As the first translation to do justice to the complexity of the Sarashina nikki, Arntzen's work offers a fresh perspective into premodern Japanese diary literature as well as an accessible yet scholarly window into Heian culture, the life of one woman, and the transformation of a life into literature. -- Christina Laffin, University of British Columbia, author of Rewriting Medieval Japanese Women This book is without a doubt a significant contribution to the field. The 100-page introduction provides the current Japanese scholarly understanding of the text, as well as the most thorough analysis of this canonical text in English - or, I imagine, in any language other than Japanese. -- Joshua Mostow, University of British Columbia

Descripción Columbia University Press, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 230 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A thousand years ago, a young Japanese girl embarked on a journey from the wild East Country to the capital. She began a diary that she would continue to write for the next forty years and compile later in life, bringing lasting prestige to her family. Some aspects of the author s life and text seem curiously modern. She married at age thirty-three and identified herself as a reader and writer more than as a wife and mother. Enthralled by romantic fiction, she wrote extensively about the disillusioning blows that reality can deal to fantasy. The Sarashina Diary is a portrait of the writer as reader and an exploration of the power of reading to shape one s expectations and aspirations. As a person and an author, this writer presages the medieval era in Japan with her deep concern for Buddhist belief and practice. Her narrative s main thread follows a trajectory from youthful infatuation with romantic fantasy to the disillusionment of age and concern for the afterlife; yet, at the same time, many passages erase the dichotomy between literary illusion and spiritual truth. This new translation captures the lyrical richness of the original text while revealing its subtle structure and ironic meaning. The introduction highlights the poetry in the Sarashina Diary and the juxtaposition of poetic passages and narrative prose, which brings meta-meanings into play. The translators commentary offers insight into the author s family and world, as well as the fascinating textual legacy of her work. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780231167185
