A great book for anyone interested in the Heian period of Japan

A great book for anyone interested in the Heian period of Japan. Though there were some differences (explained along with much of what I am writing here in Robert Borgen's excellent Sugawara no Michizane and the Early Heian Court, which first appeared in 1986), large sections of the code of the Japanese government were lifted word for word from the corresponding sections of the T'ang governmental codices. The first imperial collections of poetry written in Japan were of poems written in Chinese.

Sugawara no Michizane an. .has been added to your Cart. The book also provides a valuable reference on life in the early Heian Period, where most extant literature focuses on the latter years. Borgen shows how this early period was a time of transition, and Michizane was a product (and victim) of it. Topics explored are helpful for students, historians, or fellow Japanophiles like myself. For a historical biography, one will be pleased to find how readable it is without sacrificing content.

Book Description: Sugawara no Michizane (845-902) was one of early Japan's most remarkable men, the best of many Heian poets who wrote in Chinese, and one of the models for the title charcter in The Tale of Genji. This multifacted study offers a well-rounded portrait of Michizane. Based on a wide range of primary sources, it reconstructs and analyzes his career, both at court and in the provinces. Included are many of Michixane's poems, translated for the first time. Winner of the 1990 American Historical Association's James Henry Breasted Prize.

342 The British were concerned to keep both India and Pakistan in the Com- monwealth. Jinnah had early indicated his desire for Pakistan's membership as a check on Indian aggression but what of India? This issue takes up half of Moore's book. Nehru wished India to remain in the "Club" but he was also insistent that India be a sovereign republic. The question which bedevilled both India and the Com- monwealth in the years from 1947 to 1949, therefore, was how a sovereign republic could be accommodated in a Commonwealth acknowledging a monarch as its head.

Sugawara no Michizane (菅原 道真/菅原 道眞, August 1, 845 – March 26, 903), also known as Kan Shōjō (菅丞相) or Kanke (菅家), was a scholar, poet, and politician of the Heian Period of Japan. He is regarded as an excellent poet, particularly in Kanshi poetry, and is today revered in Shinto as the god of learning, Tenman-Tenjin (天満天神, often shortened to Tenjin)

Reviews about Sugawara no Michizane and the Early Heian Court (2):
Wild Python
The life of Sugawara no Michizane, who became a literary cult figure and then a deity in the Shinto faith in Japan, is one that's both a mixture of legend and fact, and Robert Borgen's biography does a very thorough, but engaging and readable exploration of the two, with emphasis on the factual side. Borgen contends that Michizane's accomplishments are sufficient as a historical person that they do not necessarily need deification, and he walks the reader through the life of Michizane exploring his background, family history, his poetry in various styles, and his final years before and after exile.

The book also provides a valuable reference on life in the early Heian Period, where most extant literature focuses on the latter years. Borgen shows how this early period was a time of transition, and Michizane was a product (and victim) of it. Topics explored are helpful for students, historians, or fellow Japanophiles like myself.

For a historical biography, one will be pleased to find how readable it is without sacrificing content. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
