The Hundred Poets Compared: A Print Series by Kuniyoshi, Hiroshige, and Kunisada Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Hundred Poets Compared is about a 100-print series made by three famous Ukiyo-e artists of the 19th century: Kuniyoshi, Hiroshige, and Kunisada. Each print compares one of the poems from the most-beloved collection of Japanese poetry, The One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each (Hyakunin Isshu), with a scene from Japanese history or theatre. Begun during the repressive Tenpo Reforms, the series includes many surreptitious portraits of popular actors. Herwig and Mostow explain each episode depicted and its connection to its particular poem, providing a translation of the commentary text on each print and the identification of actors and performances. This work will be welcome to Ukiyo-e collectors and scholars, as well as those interested in Kabuki and Japanese legends.

Book News Annotation:

In this attractive, oversized (10x12") volume, full-page color plates of superb quality present all 100 scenes in Japanese prints by the artists, with a description of the story found in the scene on the facing page. Translations of the inscriptions, signature, and seals on each print are included in each entry. The authors relate the story depicted, indicating variations from other prints or poems, and aspects of the figure's dress, pose, and enactment of the scene. A lengthy introduction describes the series and its production in print. Both authors are print collectors; Mostow teaches Asian studies at the U. of British Columbia, Canada; Herwig is editor of Andon, the Bulletin of the Society for Japanese Art. Distributed in North America by Brill. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
