  • Overview of the (Ogura) HyakuninIsshu,Japanese poetry and society,From a public perspective where political power may have come into play, Japanese poetry had a central role in Heian aristocratic society.Along with calligraphy and musical talent, the ability to compose waka (type of poetry in classical Japanese literature) in aristocratic society was essential. Poetic styles or tanka and their significance,These waka include poetic styles or tanka (verses)consisting of five lines with a thirty-one-syllable pattern of 5-7-5-7-7. For many years, tanka were the only form known to the Japanese. These verses were encountered as a family card game, played at New Year. Fujiwara no TeikaIn the late Heian (794-1185) and early Kamakura periods, Fujiwara no Teika (or Sadaie) (1162-1241) was a waka poet, critic, and novelist, Father and son redefined the function of poetic diction, that it should be that of the first three imperial anthologies, Kokinshu, Gosenshu, and Shuishu,Teika was probably the most prolific compiler of exemplary anthologies,He compiled the one-hundred-poem sequence (Ogura) HyakuninIsshu in 1235, into which he added a poem of his (Poem 97), Niiyama’s hand-crafted pottery, exhibitions and demonstrationsIn Niiyama’s ceramics, the sequence of the poems is different as the focus is much more on an interpretation of the poems (Niiyama and Myerscough, 1984),Niiyama’s hand-crafted pottery of the HyakuninIsshu was completed between 1958 and 1968,Worldwide exhibitions and demonstrations of his ceramics between 1968 and 1984,Gave lectures, including at Illinois State University from 1975 to 1977 to which he donated the collection in 2001 (Japan Journal, 2002),
