Abstract

「満散利久佐」(明暦二年刊(一六五六)四月刊)に登場する遊女小藤への、<利発者・わつさり者・おほちやく者・ふてき者・いたづら者・無心中者>といった評判記の表現を検証しながら、平凡、類型的な、近世初期遊女の像を描き、それとは対照的な名妓と呼ばれる遊女表現に言及し、西鶴の個性的な遊女理解についてもふれてみたい。

In 1656 there was published a pamphlet on the demimonde entitled "Masarigusa." It introduced and commented on some attractive prostitutes, and among them was a girl called Kofuji who was described as "witty, nonchalant, lazy, daring, naughty, indifferent," and so on. From those discourses emerges the popular image of a prostitute. Also referring to the descriptions of the more famous prostitutes found in Ihara-Saikaku's work, this essay will examine how the demimonde was represented and recognized in the early Edo Period.
