Example text

He was the eldest son of an averagely well-off peasant of Kashiwabara, Shinshii. After losing his mother at an early age he was brought up by his stepmother and his grandmother, who were on bad terms with each other. He went to Edo at the age of fourteen, became an apprentice and began his efforts to become an established haikai poet. He spent most of his life in Edo, only returning to live in Kashiwabara at the age of forty-nine. During this time however he went on many trips and often visited his home town.

The touch of local realism provided by the eggnog of the first poem is found in the teruteru bozu doll hung out by the maid, a thoughtless child longing for fine weather. Another member of the Koko Shisha group was Kikuchi Gozan (1769-1855), who wrote the lines: The river is one expanse of darkness, a deep smoky hue, At times as my boat goes on, it passes one that leaves. Blinds hang from the eaves and faces behind cannot be seen But a girl recognizes my voice from her boat and calls to me. Obviously this verse is written not from the courtesan's point of view but from the client's.

His attitude was formed not only by the arrival of foreign ships but also by his early poverty. Kazan did not become critical of the Bakufu as a consequence of his western studies; he became a 'Dutch scholar' because he was critical of the Bakufu. In the first version of Seiyojijosho (Conditions in the West, 1839) a work Kazan wrote at the request of Egawa Hidetatsu, he describes the countries of the West as being well-versed in international affairs, possessing useful knowledge and being well-armed but not given to indiscriminate violence - a combination of assets that has given them a dominant position in the world.
