Japanese Poetry: The Road to Haiku

Taught by Professor Mark J. Ravina | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Journey through some of the best-known styles and voices of Japanese poetry. You’ll start with the oldest surviving Japanese poems and follow the development of tanka, the classical five-line form, and renga, a single poem written by multiple poets.
