A Gap in the Clouds: Crafting a New Translation of Japan’s Most Important Poetry Collection

The Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, or Ogura’s 100 poems by 100 poets is one of the most important poetry collections in Japan. It was compiled around 1235 by Fujiwara no Teika, but its poems date from the 800s onwards, and its poets include emperors and empresses, courtiers and high priests, ladies-in-waiting and soldier-calligraphers.

Join James Hadley and Nell Regan as they introduce their new book and read a selection of these tiny, exquisite poems.
