Example text

There would have been little Michikatsu could do but huddle over a brazier for warmth. Inoue transcribes several poems from this period that reveal Michikatsu rehearsing the expression of disgruntlement at his misfortune. 40 The first is on “admiring the blossoms”: yoso ni shite omou mo hana ni urami are ya ōmiyabito no haru no kokoro o Away from it all, how I resent the blossoms! Especially when I recall the feelings they inspire in courtiers in spring. Even the imagined sight of cherry blossoms upsets him, he claims—the eleventh month, when Michikatsu composed these poems, is midwinter.

The Imagawa had lost out to surrounding warlords; their territories carved up, they could no longer patronize the courtiers who had gathered around them. For the next ten years, until Saneki’s death in 1579, Michikatsu was able to read and study texts with him. When Saneki was summoned to the palace of Prince Sanehito to lecture on Genji, Michikatsu accompanied him, and in his spare time he copied a text of Genji, probably recording notes from his uncle’s lectures as he went along. 14 Imperial Censure When they were not practicing the family arts, some nobles were living recklessly—for who knew what death and devastation tomorrow might bring?

Michikatsu’s Great Work In 1589, when Michikatsu had been living at Tanabe Castle for some eight years, Yūsai suggested that his guest should compile a commentary on The Tale of Genji. Yūsai himself had studied Genji with Michikatsu’s uncle Sanjōnishi Saneki, but his curiosity had not been satisfied. 56 And he made it possible for his guest to do so by providing him with copies of the texts he would need to consult, as well as, we must assume, the (expensive) paper, the ink, and the uninterrupted time he would need to complete the task.
