Bai Juyi poezija kaip kiniškas intertekstas japonų klasikiniame tekste (lyginamoji studija) (Bai Juyi’s poetry as Chinese intertext in Japanese classical text: comparative approach)

Author: Dalia Švambarytė
Institute: Vilnius University
Year of assertion: 2005

Political, cultural and literary borrowings of Chinese origin are firmly rooted in the Japanese soil. Yang Guifei, a character of Tang dinasty’s China, was made immortal by Bai Juyi, and through his poem The Everlasting Sorrow made its way into Japanese literature. This article attempts to contribute to the discussion regarding the influence that her story made on Genji monogatari by concentrating on the polyphony of its reflections in personae and composition of Murasaki Shikibu’s narration, driving parallels between the temperaments in the Chinese poem, the Japanese novel and No drama Yōkihi, and arguing their differences in the light of buddhistic reintepretation of the Chinese morals in either The Tale of Genji or the No production. The article is supplied with Lithuanian translation of the Bai Juyi’s poem.
