Overview

Breeze Through Bamboo: Selected Kanshi of Ema Saiko by Ema Saiko

Ema Saiko (1787-1861) was a remarkably evocative poet, one of the few known woman writers of kanshi poems--verse written in classical Chinese but read as Japanese. Writing in this form, Saiko distinguished herself during the Tokugawa period, when composition in Chinese was largely a men's province.

What People are Saying About This

Sonja Arntzen

It is delightful to know such a woman existed in Tokugawa Japan. Here is a poet-painter who was able to consort on an equal footing with the male scholars and poets of her day. Her poetic voice is refreshingly direct and honest.

Sonja Arntzen, translator of Ikkyu and The Crazy Cloud Anthology: A Zen Poet of Medieval Japan
