Sarumino Monkey's Raincoat

[ . BACK to WORLDKIGO . TOP . ]
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 

- Sarumino 猿蓑 Monkey's Raincoat -

a 1691 anthology, considered the magnum opus of Bashō-school poetry.
It contains four kasen renku as well as some 400 hokku, collected by Nozawa Bonchō and Mukai Kyorai under the supervision of Matsuo Bashō. Sarumino is one of the Seven Major Anthologies of Bashō (Bashō Shichibu Shū), and, together with the 1690 anthology, Hisago (The Gourd), it is considered to display Bashō's mature style (Shōfū) at its peak.
Bashō's influence on all four of the kasen in Sarumino was profound and when he sat with Bonchō, Okada Yasui and Kyorai at Yoshinaka Temple to write "Kirigirisu", he extolled them,
"Let's squeeze the juice from our bones."

Natsu no Tsuki (Summer Moon) - (Tr. Donald Keene)

In the city
What a heavy smell of things!
The summer moon.
(Bonchō)


How hot it is! How hot it is!
Voices call at gate after gate.
(Kyorai)


The second weeding
Has not even been finished,
But the rice is in ear.
(Bashō)


Brushing away the ashes,
A single smoked sardine.
(Bonchō)


In this neighborhood
They don't even recognize money—
How inconvenient!
(Bashō)


He just stands there stupidly
Wearing a great big dagger.
(Kyorai)

Monkey's Straw Raincoat

Le Manteau de pluie du Singe

(Tr. René Sieffert 1986)


quote
MONKEY'S RAINCOAT (SARUMINO):
Linked Poetry of the Basho School
translated from the Japanese by Lenore Mayhew Rutland,
Vermont: 1985 895.61 SAR

Monkey's Raincoat came about in 1690 when the poet Basho and a friend, Otokuni, made a trip to the capital city of Edo (now Tokyo). The two invited other poets to help them celebrate the occasion by composing a renga. As the haikai master, Basho wrote the lead verses.
"Let's squeeze the juice from our bones", Basho enthused.

Winter's first rain
Monkey needs
A raincoat too.

The renga has been compared to the verse debates conducted by medieval troubadours. Called partumens, these debates provided entertainment for aristocratic gatherings. At about the same time in Japan, Lady Murasaki in her masterpiece The Tale of Genji described the members of court passing the time by making a renga. It would be the great poet Basho (1644-1694) who transformed the renga from a game to a profound art.

人に家をかはせて我は年忘 

こがらしや頬腫痛む人の顔

住みつかぬ旅のこゝろや置火燵 

雪ちるや穂屋の薄の刈残し 

から鮭も空也の痩も寒の内

人に家をかはせて我は年忘


うき我をさびしがらせよかんこ鳥 

たけのこや稚き時の繪のすさび 

蛸壺やはかなき夢を夏の月

粽結ふかた手にはさむ額髪

夏草や兵共がゆめの跡 

笠嶋やいづこ五月のぬかり道 

日の道や葵傾くさ月あめ 

風流のはじめや奥の田植うた 

眉掃を面影にして紅粉の花 

ほたる見や船頭酔ておぼつかな

頓て死ぬけしきは見えず蝉の聲 

無き人の小袖も今や土用干 




文月や六日も常の夜には似ず 

桐の木にうづら鳴なる塀の内  

病鴈の夜寒に落て旅ね哉 

むざんやな甲の下のきりぎりす

月清し遊行のもてる砂の上 



麥めしにやつるゝ恋か猫の妻 

かげりふや柴胡の糸の薄曇 

不性さやかき起されし春の雨 

闇の夜や巣をまどはしてなく鵆 

ひばりなく中の拍子や雉子の聲

山吹や宇治の焙炉の匂ふ時
yamabuki ya Uji no

うぐひすの笠おとしたる椿哉

猶見たし花に明行神の顔

一里はみな花守の子孫かや

草臥て宿かる比や藤の花  

行春を近江の人とおしみける



一ふき風の木の葉しづまる

あつしあつしと門々の聲

あぶらかすりて宵寝する秋

梅若菜まりこの宿のとゝろ汁

so respectful !

Written in December 1690 元禄3年
He might have written this when seeing the ragged image of Ono no Komachi, Sotoba Komachi 卒都婆小町 the Beauty Komachi on a grave marker.
It might have reminded him of his own appearance, almost like a ragged beggar.

Haiseiden 俳聖殿 Haisei-Den Hall of the Haiku Saint
near Iga Ueno Castle, with a life-size statue of Basho

The Haisei-den, the great haiku poet's hall,
was built inside Ueno-koen Park in 1942 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of his birth. The building itself is shaped like the figure of Basho attired in a traveling clothes. The round roof symbolizes his sedge hat, the octagonal eaves his surplice, the pillar is his cane, and the frame of the Haisei-den is in the shape of his face. Other Basho-related facilities include the Minomushi-an, or bagworm hermitage, and the venerable Basho Memorial Hall, Basho Kinen-kan Museum.

. zooka, zōka 造化 Zoka - Creation (and transformation) .

quote
- - - Kyorai records:
The Master said that some haikai styles remain unchanging for thousands of years while others are fluid with the passing of time. Although these two are spoken of as opposite sides, they are one at the base.
“They are one at the base” means that both are based on the sincerity of poetry (fûga no makoto). If one does not understand the unchanging, his poetry has no base; if one does not learn the fluid, his poetry has no novelty. He who truly understands the fluid will never stop moving forward. He who excels at a transitory fashion can only have his verse meet a momentary taste; once the fashion changes, he becomes stagnated.

- - - Hattori Dohô records:
The Master’s poetry has both the unchanging (fueki) that remains for thousands of years and the ever-changing (henka) that lasts only momentarily. These two, in the final analysis, are one at the base. This “one at the base” is the sincerity of poetry (fûga no makoto).

If one does not understand what the unchanging is, one cannot understand the sincerity of poetry. The unchanging does not depend on the old or the new, nor is it affected by changes and fashions; it is firmly rooted in the sincerity of poetry. Looking at the poetry of poets from different generations, one finds it changes with each generation. Yet, there are many poems that stay beyond the old and the new, many poems that are as deeply touching to us as they were in the eyes of ancients. These belong to the unchanging poetry one should understand.

On the other hand, it is the rule of the Natural (ji’nen 自然) that everything undergoes countless changes and transformations. If haikai does not go through changes, it cannot be renewed. If one does not seek change, one can only gain popularity in a transitory fashion, but never reach the sincerity of poetry.

Those who are not determined to pursue the sincerity of poetry cannot grasp the change rooted in it. They can only follow behind the footsteps of others. Those who pursue sincerity never stop at where they have arrived and naturally step forward. No matter how many changes and varieties haikai may have in the future, if it is change rooted in sincerity, it belongs to the Master’s poetic tradition.
The Master said:
“Don’t ever lick the dregs of the ancients. All things constantly renew themselves as the shifts of four seasons, and this is true of haikai.”

“The Master said:
‘The changes of Heaven and earth are the seeds of poetry.’
What is still is the stance of unchanging (fuhen). What is in motion is change (hen).” Kyorai compares fueki and ryûkô to inaction and movement; Dohô defines fuhen and hen as “what is still” and “what is in motion.”
Both pairs of terms find their parallels in the Zhuangzi.

Fueki and ryûkô represent the dialectic aspects of Bashô’s poetics of the Natural, which constitutes the substance of the “sincerity of poetry.” The ambiguous terms Kyorai and Dohô use, in this context, are logically meaningful: “inaction” and “stillness” designate the constant principle of the Natural and the noninterference with its expression in poetic creation, and “movement” and “motion” the adherence to the ever-changing nature of the universe and to its novel manifestations in poetry.

Basho taught his disciples:

"The poetic mind must always remain detached (mujo) and eccentric (kyoken).
The thematic materials must be chosen from ordinary life.
The diction must be entirely from everyday language."

source : Peipei Qiu: Basho and the Dao


". . . behold the clouds over the east bank of the Yangzi River
when you are looking at the moon above the Kasai shore. "


The "East Bank of the Yangzi River" refers to Huiji, where Li Bo spent time composing poetry.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


On composing haiku the Master once commented:
“If you get a flash of insight into an object,
put it into words before it fades away in your mind.”
He also said: “
Toss out the feeling to the surface of your poem.”

These teachings mean that one should set his poetic feeling into form instantly after he gets into the realm, before the feeling cools off.
In composing haiku there are two ways: “becoming” and “making”.
When a poet who has always been assiduous in pursuit of his aim applies himself to an external object, the color of his mind naturally becomes a poem. In the case of a poet who has not done so, nothing in him will become a poem; he, consequently, has to make out a poem through the act of his personal will.8

MUJO

The basic tenet of Buddhism, that of mujo, or impermanence, is naturally reflected in most haiku, Chiyo-ni's as well. This follows Basho's edict on the importance of becoming one with nature and capturing its fleeting quality. Althought every culture have an awareness of the mutability of life, in Japanese culture there is language for it that is both artistic and religious.

Mujo embodies people's thinking and is an aesthetic term pervarding the poetry as well. Perhaps the cataclysmic naature of Japanese archipelago - with its head quarters, tidal waves, and volcanic eruptions - made people more acutely aware of the passing of things. This awareness became a natural part of haiku, in a poignant way. Haiku, which usually refers to nature, depicts it not as "fallen", as in the West, but transient; there is an acceptance and appreciation of its evanescence.
In Japanese aesthetics this is called "aware", or sad beauty.

蕉風俳諧の成立 Shoofuu Haikai no Seiritsu

俳諧は、江戸時代の始めに、遊びや滑稽を旨として、ことば遊びとして普及しました。
先の人の作った上の句(発句といった)に、次の人が下の句を付ける連歌から始まり、発句だけを独立して作るようになります。
俳諧はやがて経済的実力を高めた上層の町人や農民にも広まってゆきました。

16世紀の終わり頃、松尾芭蕉は、滑稽の俳諧から離れて、さび、しおり、ほそみ、などの考え方を取り入れ、幽玄閑寂な風を作りだしました。これによって、発句は文学に高められました。
芭蕉の「蕉風の俳諧」は、急速に全国に広まりました。

Yosa Buson  与謝蕪村 wrote

"Basho once gone,
we have no master to teach us,
whether the year begins or ends."


芭蕉去てその後 いまだ年暮れず
Basho satte sono nochi imada toshi kurezu - Basho sarite

Since Basho left the world,
Not yet has
"The year drawn to its close."


"Rushing along in the road to fame and riches, drowning in the sea of desire, people torture their ephemeral selves. Especially on New Year's Eve their behavior is unspeakable. Despicably walking about knocking at doors, treating everyone with contempt unnecessarily, insanely vulgar behavior, and so on, is not decent. Even so, we foolish mortals can hardly escape from this world of dust and sin.

The year draws to its close;
I am still wearing
My kasa and straw sandals.


Reading this poem quietly in a corner of the room, my mind becomes clear; were I living Basho's life, how good it would be! The verse is uplifting to me, and it may be called a Great Rest-and-Enlightenment as far as I am concerned.

Basho once gone,
we have no master to teach us,
whether the year begins or ends."
