Giới thiệu:

Ki no Tsurayuki was a Japanese waka poet of the Heian period. In 905, he was one of the poets ordered to compile the "Kokinshu - Collected Japanese Poems of Ancient and Modern Times". He is also one of the Thirty-six Poetry Immortals of Japan. The Tosa Diary, written in 935, is considered the major work of Tsurayuki. It is an account of his return to the capital Kyoto from Tosa province, where he had served as governor since 930. The journey is by boat, and Tsurayuki tells about his sea sickness and fear of pirates, his impressions of the coast, and the various offerings to placate the gods of the sea. The Tosa Diary is written entirely in kana (the "women's" alphabet) and contains many poems composed by Tsurayuki during the journey.

Rick Powder Jacquart: At work today i wanted to listen to something to help pass the time. Having a free play to use I picked this book because of an interest in ancient japan and poetry. This not only ooened my eyes to the use of stanzas in ancient japan, but I also learned alot from the usually annoying footnotes and, I felt as if I was taken on the journey with the passangers as well. I will purchase the literal book itself to read with my own eyes and make a cherished part of my small collection. Thank you for the opportunity to experience it)
