In His Own Words: The Taiki of Fujiwara no Yorinaga

Professor Onoe Yosuke
Dr. Sachiko Kawai
Professor Joan Piggott

The 2019 Kambun Workshop at the University of Southern California focussed on reading selections from the late Heian Taiki courtier journal of Fujiwara Yorinaga (1120-56), son of the viceroy Tadazane. Yorinaga's leadership at court was a significant cause of the Hôgen rebellion of 1156. But before the rebellion, Yorinaga spent years documenting his meetings, illnesses, hopes, and disappointments. Participants this summer translated entries from the journal where Yorinaga described the construction of his book vault, poetry gatherings, his numerous attempts to study the Classics, and many other aspects of his life. Through the pages of Taiki, the participants came to understand a life of an ambitious twelfth century elite. Professor Onoe Yosuke also gave a special public lecture on the diaries and documents of the Konoe family.
