Introduction

http://jti.lib.virginia.edu/japanese/jti.intro.html

.

“In the past twenty years, worldwide interest in Japanese literature, and in classical Japanese literature in particular, has grown remarkably. Before the 1960s, only Arthur Waley’s translations of The Tale of Genji, portions of Sei Shonagon’s Pillow Book, and his collection of Noh plays were widely circulated. Thirty years later, in addition to a new translation of Genji, fresh translations of prose, poetry, and theatre pieces originally composed from the beginnings of the Japanese literary tradition to the beginnings of modern developments in the later part of the nineteenth century have allowed both specialists and general readers to obtain a broad grasp of the remarkable developments of this thousand-year tradition by reading versions of these texts in English, and to some extent, in French and German as well.

.

Along with the appearance of translations has come the development of two generations or more of scholars and readers able to read and study these beautiful texts in their original language. Classical Japanese is now widely taught both in the United States and in Europe, and those who have attempted even a semester or two of study have learned that the beauties of traditional Japanese waka poetry or a text like the Hojoki (“An Account of My Hut”) by Kamo no Chomei are greater, and often more profound, than those that any translation can reveal. The availability of this representative sampling of the important texts of the canon of classical Japanese literature will be of tremendous assistance to those who wish to read and study them in the original, particularly as, whenever possible, English translations are included here with them. In addition, contemporary technology permits a rapid searching for words and characters, a technique that can serve in and of itself as a powerful learning tool.”

Scope and Goals

http://jti.lib.virginia.edu/japanese/jti.scope.html

.

Scope:

.

“The Japanese Text Initiative (JTI) intends to put online on the Web texts of classical Japanese literature in Japanese characters. Our primary audience is English-speaking scholars and students. Where possible, the Japanese texts will be accompanied by English translations. All JTI texts will be tagged in Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), according to Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) standards, and converted to HTML or XML for display on the Web. An important purpose is to make JTI texts in both Japanese and English searchable, both individually and as a group.

.

Generally, the electronic texts at the E-Text Center site are not intended to be substitutes for authoritative printed editions. We do not put on the Web copyrighted texts, unless we have permission from the copyright holders. With some exceptions, the texts of current scholarly editions of literature in English, French, German, Japanese, and other languages are not freely available for sites such as ours. As a result, we use texts without copyright constraints, such as editions for which copyright has expired. These e-texts are therefore useful as supplements to current scholarly editions. What the e-texts add to those editions is the capability of rapid searching for words and characters, which would take considerably longer in printed texts.

.

In a few cases e-texts have been newly edited for this Web site, and so can be considered authoritative texts. Examples can be found in the British Poetry category at the E-Text Center, as well as our own edition of Kokinshu.

.

Goals:

.

In the short term, we hope to put online most or all of the Twenty Classical Works in J. Thomas Rimer’s A Reader’s Guide to Japanese Literature, revised edition (New York: Kodansha, 1999). A longer-range goal is to add a wide range of pre-twentieth-century works. We also hope to add twentieth-century literature that does not have copyright restrictions.”
