Course Overview This course builds on skills developed in “Introduction to Kobun.” The focus will be on reading and translating a variety of literary texts from the 8th through 15th centuries. Students will gain exposure to a number of styles, including wabun, wakan konkōbun, and kanbun, as well as a number of different genres, from tales and diaries to belles-lettres to poetry. While readings have been chosen to align with materials covered in “Japan: A Literary History,” student research interests will be taken into account as we move through the syllabus.
