Abstract

An anthology of Sino-Japanese poetry published in 2016 comprises a well-annotated collection of classical Chinese poems with translations in kundoku-style Japanese. One quatrain that appears in the anthology was penned by Ido Reizan (1859–1935), of whom the annotator writes as "a Meiji-era poet whose career is obscure". This obscurity is somewhat surprising given that Reizan was a prolific writer who authored dozens of books and founded a magazine which enjoyed a readership of tens of thousands; he was also personally acquainted with such political heavyweights as Hara Takashi and Gotō Shinpei, as well as with a number of artists such as Nakamura Fusetsu, Komuro Suiun, and Zhang Daqian. This paper attempts to trace Reizan's career, which spanned activism, journalism, calligraphy criticism, and classical Chinese poetry.
