Join us for a dramatization of the Man’yōshū featuring Keiko Matsuzaka, a well-known actress in Japan. Other narrators are Monet and Marisa Takauchi. The Man’yōshū is a collection of ancient Japanese poems compiled in the latter half of the eighth century. Preceding the dramatic reading, Professor Makoto Ueno of Nara University, who wrote the dramatization, will provide a brief introductory lecture, as will Dr. Robert Huey, Professor of Japanese and Chair of EALL at UHM, who translated the script. This event is brought to you by the Department of East Asian Languages & Literatures and co-sponsored by the Center for Japanese Studies.
