Abutsu Follows the Way of Poetry

Lecture no. 33 from the course: Warriors, Queens and Intellectuals: 36 Great Women Before 1400

Abutsu Follows the Way of Poetry

Taught by Professor Joyce E. Salisbury | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Though we don’t know her birth name, the woman who would come to be called Abutsu used her talents as a writer to make her fortune in a time of immense change for Japan. Under the new regime of Confucianism, women saw their freedoms curtailed and their opportunities limited, but Abutsu found a path to influence through the “Way of Poetry.”
