72. The poetic expressiveness and creativity of Japanese women poets of the Manyoshu
era is generally regarded as a manifestation of the freedom and relatively high political
and economic status of women of that era. During the Heian Period (A.D. 794 – 1185)
which followed, Japanese women became increasingly relegated to domestic roles under
the influence of Buddhism and Confucianism which excluded women from the political and
economic arenas. Yet, since poetry of the period came to be defined solely as short lyrical
poetry, known as “waka”, and became the prevailing means of expressing love, women
continued to excel and play a central role in the development of classical Japanese poetry.
Moreover, while official Japanese documents were written in Chinese, the phonetic
alphabet “kana” was used for poetry. Also referred to as “onna moji” (women’s letter),
“kana” was not deemed sufficiently sophisticated for use by Japanese men, who continued
to write Chinese poetry, increasingly for expressing religious ideas and as an intellectual
pastime. Chinese poetry ultimately yielded, then, to “waka” as the mainstream of
Japanese poetry.
