Japanese poetry[edit]

2004年11月8日

Just a stub for such an important subject.

  2. Aphaea 18:06, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC) It should be expanded.
  3. gK 21:38, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC) I've also placed some comments under Talk:Japanese poetry
Since it gets three, the largest number of votes, it is our CotW :) --Aphaea 02:34, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Comments

  • There are now more comments from both Aphaea and gK at Talk:Japanese poetry.
  • It's nice to see this article become the COTW, although to do it up properly it probably should be the Collaboration of the Fortnight. ;-)


Japanese poetry Week 2[edit]

The Japanese poetry article is off to a good start, but it is a big project and deserves two weeks of attention to whip it into shape, so we should turn it into the "Collaboration of the Fortnight". [[User:GK|gK ¿?]]

Kabuki[edit]

There is quite a bit there already, but it needs a better organization and better presentation, plus it is still lacking quite a bit of info to make it truely encyclopedic (e.g. Chikamatsu Monzaemon, modern Kabuki, etc.).[[User:GK|gK ¿?]]

  • This should be a relatively easy topic to cover after tackling the huge subject of Japanese literature. I've already added bits and pieces to it, and I have yet to mine my copy of the Hoffman book on "Japanese Death Poems" for info. I know that Chinese monks also wrote death poems, but I do not have good reference sources for that subject area (did the Chinese aristocracy also write death poems?). The article also needs some better organization (such as moving the Samurai stuff to the bottom). [[User:GK|gK ¿?]] 08:02, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • I listed it as new CotW, because the former entry Kabuki was left there since last year. We need to something new. --Aphaea* 12:51, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

Comment

  • What can be put into an article on Hikaru Genji that shouldn't be in the Tale of Genji article? Do we need to create "lit-cruft"? I think that it woud be better to turn Hikaru Genji into a redirect, and then work to improve the Tale of Genji article. BlankVerse 06:13, 7 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Your suggestion is worthy to consider but I thought we could expand it more (Cf. ja:光源氏). I don't oppose to merge but currently not sure it is the best. Any other opinions? --Aphaea* 08:37, 7 May 2005 (UTC)
      • Isn't the popular Yoshitsune Samurai TV drama about the last of the Genji clan as well? - Sparky 02:21, 8 May 2005 (UTC)
        • Same clan, different families. ;-) --Aphaea* 03:10, 8 May 2005 (UTC)
        • Sparky, you're right about the show being about the Genji. See Minamoto for more information about the Genji. BTW, the Yoshitsune Taiga drama is the end of Yoshitsune's line, but not the end of the powerful Minamoto line; his elder brother Minamoto no Yoritomo was the first Sei-i Taishogun of the Minamoto line, and Yoritomo's two sons were shoguns after him.

  • I'd like to proceed and translate/edit, section by section from the JP wiki. --Jondel 23:54, 8 May 2005 (UTC)
It seems nice. I cannot contribute because I do not know technical terms in this area, unfortunately. --Corruptresearcher 11:18, 11 May 2005 (UTC)

Comments

  • I think the Japanese term for this concept is shinkō shūkyō (新興宗教) rather than shinkyō (新教). Shinkyō stands for Protestant, while Kyūkyō (旧教) 'old teaching' means Catholic. (ja.wp redirects shinkyō to Protestant.) --Pitan 14:27, 8 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Now that you point that out, I think you're right. I misremembered the term. According to the Japanese Wikipedia, shinkō shūkyō (新興宗教) is synonymous with shinshūkyō (新宗教), and so I will move my page to Shinshukyo, mentioning the alternate term 新興宗教 in the text. Thanks for pointing out my flub. LordAmeth 00:18, 9 May 2005 (UTC)
Presently, Shinshukyo in English links to 新教 which redirects to プロテスタント in the Japanese Wikipedia, where 新興宗教 redirects to 新宗教. This in turn has a link to the English article New religious movement. It's comforting when an article in one language leads to the corresponding article in another, and the link there leads back to the original. In contrast, this is quite a circle. But I ramble...

  • I have changed the ja: link to go to 新宗教 instead of 新教. LordAmeth 10:24, 9 May 2005 (UTC)
