Around 1235, Japanese poet Fujiwara no Teika compiled for his son’s father-in-law a collection of one hundred poems by one hundred poets that became the exemplar of the genre—a mini-manual of classical poetry, still taught in the standard school curriculum. One Hundred People, One Poem Each contains the best that classical Japanese poetry has to offer—here presented in a new verse translation.
