The Readership of Matsukage nikki

Gaye Rowley

43rd International Conference on Japanese Literature(National Institute of Japanese Literature)Invitation Yes2019/11/17

Detail

National conferenceOral presentation(invited, special)Venue:Tokyo

Outline: For some years now I have been preparing an English translation of Matsukage nikki (In the Shelter of the Pine, ca. 1710-1712), the memoir of Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu (1658-1714) and the reign of the fifth Tokugawa Shogun Tsunayoshi (1646-1709; r. 1680-1709) composed by Yoshiyasu’s aristocratic concubine Ōgimachi Machiko (1679?-1724). The publication in 2007 of a new edition of the text by Miyakawa Yoko, based on Machiko’s holographs in the collection of the Yanagisawa Bunko and complete with a modern Japanese translation and thousands of notes, has made my translation possible. We might now describe Matsukage nikki as the most significant work of literature by a woman from Japan’s early modern era. But this is of course not how earlier readers saw the text or why they valued it. Previous research has shown that the historians who compiled Tokugawa jikki, the official history of the Tokugawa shogunate, saw fit to quote from Matsukage nikki some twenty times. We also know that people as different in outlook and interests as the Kyoto writer Ban Kōkei (1733-1806), author of Kinsei kijinden (Eccentrics of Our Times, 1790), and the Confucian scholar from Hiroshima, Rai Shunsui (1746-1816), owned copies of the text. In my presentation, I shall explore what we know about who read Matsukage nikki in the Edo period, why, and what this readership reveals about the reception of the work. I shall also discuss some aspects of the Machiko’s memoir that became visible during the struggle to translate it for an English-reading audience.

Gaye Rowley

Detail

National conferenceOral presentation(invited, special)Venue:Tokyo

Outline: Ōgimachi Machiko (1679-1724) was a concubine of Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu (1658-1714), a samurai of relatively humble origins who rose to become Chief Adjutant to the fifth Tokugawa Shogun Tsunayoshi (1646-1709; r. 1680-1709). In the Shelter of the Pine (ca. 1710-1712) is her memoir of Yoshiyasu, the man she lived with for twenty some years, from late 1693, when she was fourteen, until his death in the Eleventh Month of 1714, when she was thirty-five. It is decidedly not a "warts and all" portrait of Yoshiyasu. Machiko's brief was to depict Yoshiyasu's life as exemplary; and accordingly, the tale she tells is of devotion to duty and services respectfully rendered, duly rewarded with promotions and shogunal praise. The details that Machiko is at pains to convey—the dates of Tsunayoshi's visits, the conduct of grand ceremonies, the names and court offices of the men who were in attendance, the Nō plays performed on this or that occasion, the gifts given and received, the births and the deaths—are historically accurate. Much of this information is available elsewhere, however, and is not the principal interest of the work to a twenty-first-century reader. Rather, it is the way these details are narrated, the literary form adopted by the author for her narrative, that constitute the chief interest of the text, and will be the focus of Dr. Rowley's talk to the Society.

『源氏物語』の女性読者の受容-花屋玉栄の場合-

2004

Research Results Outline:前近代において、『源氏物語』注釈書にはすさまじい量があるが、女性によって書かれた物は少なく、女性読者のために書かれた物は玉栄の作品以外を見出せない。玉前近代において、『源氏物語』注釈書にはすさまじい量があるが、女性によって書かれた物は少なく、女性読者のために書かれた物は玉栄の作品以外を見出せない。玉栄の女性読者に対する配慮と思われる特徴には、主にひらがなを利用することや、男性による注釈書と違って...前近代において、『源氏物語』注釈書にはすさまじい量があるが、女性によって書かれた物は少なく、女性読者のために書かれた物は玉栄の作品以外を見出せない。玉栄の女性読者に対する配慮と思われる特徴には、主にひらがなを利用することや、男性による注釈書と違って、典拠として仏典、漢籍をいっさい挙げていないことがある。1.花屋玉栄(かおくぎょくえい、1536-1602以降)が書き残した二つの『源氏物語』注釈書の部分英訳を作成した。具体的には、玉栄の注釈書『花屋抄』(文禄3/1594年完)と梗概書『玉栄集』(慶長7/1602年完)の部分訳を米国コロンビア大学のハルオ・シラネ教授が編集中の『源氏物語』受容史英訳集(英語のタイトルはThe Genji Reader)に提出し、いづれコロンビア大学出版会に出版される予定である。2.玉栄とは誰だったのかをできる限り明確にするために、いくつかの研究機関を訪れ、研究者と面会した。2004年5月20日に東京大学史料編さん所蔵の『近衛家文書』を調査し、吉田早苗教授に話をうかがった。さらに2005年3月6日~10日の間京都にある陽明文庫に調査へ出かけて行った。陽明文庫長の名和修氏にいくつかの近衛家文書を見せ、難解の箇所まで判読していただき、大変お世話になった。わたくしの仮説、「足利十三代将軍義輝の御台所近衛前久の姉」=「近衛前久の姉花屋玉栄」を検証するために最も貴重な資料は、慶長年間にできた系譜一枚で、玉栄の弟で、近衛家の当主近衛前久(1536-1612)あるいは前久の嫡男信尹(1565-1614)が作成した物と思われる。玉栄や前久の父親近衛稙家の子女が掲載されている系譜で、義輝御台が記載されているが、院号などの記載はなく花屋玉栄と同一人物であるかどうかは不明のままである。他に玉栄と考えられるような人物の記載もなく、同一人物ではないと決定することも難しい。成果とは言い難いが、近い将来これらを日本語の小論にまとめ、多く意見などを求めたい所存である。3.2005年3月24~26日コロンビア大学で催される国際シンポジウム「The Tale of Genji in Japan and the World: Social Imaginary, Media, and Cultural Production」に出席し、淑徳大学教授宮川葉子氏と共同発表を行った。題は「江戸期の公家と武家の文化交流―綱吉の時代を中心に―」で、直接玉栄とは関係がないものの、次の研究課題『源氏物語』の女性読者の受容「正親町町子の場合」につなげていきたいと思う次第である。

1950年代の日本女性の「底辺」-増田小夜の『芸者 苦闘の半生涯』
