Abstract: Daoist classics had a profound impact on Japanese literature, but English studies of this influence have been scarce. This chapter sheds light on this area by examining the role Daoist classic Zhuangzi played in the development of Japanese haikai—the matrix of modern haiku—during the latter half of the seventeenth century.
When haikai became a popular genre of linked verse in the seventeenth century, haikai poets faced paradoxical demands. On the one hand, they had to break the conventions of the classical linked verse in order to reach a popular audience, on the other hand, they needed codified poetic signifiers and intertextual structures from the classical tradition to elevate haikai’s vernacular language to poetic art. This chapter locates haikai’s encounter with the Zhuangzi in the intersection of the deconstructing and reconstructing of the canonical traction. It provides a hermeneutic reading of the intertextual relations between haikai compositions and the Daoist texts, as well as an in-depth analyses of key terms that have been instrumental in reconstructing haikai’s poetic essence. Through examining the works of Japan’s greatest haikai poet Matsuo Basho (1664-1694), it shows how the Zhuangzi helped turn the parodic and vernacular haikai into a high art.
