Example text

The model was given by the oldest Waka anthology, Manyo- -shu- , that presents a voluminous animistic cosmos made from an echoing forest of words by anonymous writers: If I were at home, We should pile rice in a bowl. 23 (B-T, 8) Shiki’s poetics of self-sacrifice represents an incantation for the development of a new self that should be reborn after an ultimate union with the natural universe. 25 Just as with the intensified cultivation of a common small piece of field, so did myriads of poets seek poetry in the conventional 31 syllables.

17 To this also confusing, “vague” term (Eco, Semiotics and the Philosophy of Language 130), Clive Scott gives the following definition: What then differentiates symbol from metaphor is that while metaphor has only a local existence within the poem, the symbol informs the whole poem and can subsume it, rather as a title does. . The symbol is the precipitate of all the ‘tiers aspects’ . . that have grown out of the metaphors of the poem. . (209–10) Umberto Eco grasps the extensive meaning of the word in the image of a wheel turning around a fixed hub (Semiotics 162–63).

Such restricted formality assimilates their efforts; through the brush, they transmit their creative energy to the syllabic letters that give back further inspiration to the poets with the evoked intertexts in the same Waka form. The writing of the 31-syllable poems realizes the cosmic union in an eternal cycle that involves the author, ink, 50 The Japanese Reformation of Poetic Language  objects, nature, space, time, and reader. The force from the author as a provisional starting point should break through all apparent distinctions in the diversified cosmos.
