Matsuo Basho Facts
Very minimal wear and tear. As his number of students grew, Basho was able to publish their best poems in an anthology in An admirer helped establish Basho in a small cottage at Fukagawa in Edo.
His cottage became known as the Hermitage of the Banana Plant, and the poet, who had been known by the pen name, Tosei, decided to use the name Basho. His house burned in , and it was at this time that Basho began to study Zen at the Chokei Temple in Fukagawa. By , his house was rebuilt and Basho returned to Edo.
This began a time when Basho began to travel. In , he traveled to his birthplace which resulted in the work, The Weatherbeaten Trip. He also published a haiku collection, Winter Days, which was composed with his disciples. Basho described the abstract beauty behind the appearance of the world. Oku no hosomichi, his greatest travel diary, told of his trip through northern Japan in In Basho lived for a time in quiet retirement at the Genju-an Unreal Dwelling near Lake Biwa, north of Kyoto, and he wrote an account of this stay. Early in he stayed for a time in Saga with his disciple Mukai Kyorai.
As for his poetry, Waste Land Arano had been compiled by the disciple Kakei and published in It is the largest of the anthologies and contains a preface by Basho in which he characterizes his preceding anthologies as "flowery" and henceforth establishes a new standard of metaphysical and esthetic depth for haiku. It foreshadows in its excellence the mature and serious versifying which was to be the hallmark of the anthology The Monkey's Raincoat Sarumino in Compiled by Basho's disciples under his attentive supervision, The Monkey's Raincoat is composed of a judicious selection of haiku from the hands of many poets.
It was while Basho was staying at the hermitage in Omi during the spring and summer of that the compilation was made.
The Monkey's Raincoat contains some of Basho's own finest and essential haiku. This anthology, which may be compared with the finest anthologies in the history of Japanese literature, is arranged according to the four seasons. But all the verses conform to Basho's tastes. The poems are linked by a subtle emotion rather than by a logical sequence, but they belong together. In the late fall of Basho returned to Edo, where a new Banana Hermitage had been built near the site of the former one, complete with another banana plant in the garden. For the next 3 years Basho remained there receiving his disciples, discussing poetry, and helping in the compilation of another anthology, The Sack of Charcoal Sumidawara of The reason for the title, according to the preface, is that Basho, when asked if such a word could be used in haiku poetry, replied that it could.
This anthology, together with its successor, The Sequel to the Monkey's Raincoat Zoku Sarumino , exhibits the quality of Karumi, or lightness, an artistic spontaneity which is the fruit of a lifetime of poetic cultivation. It is a kind of sublimity reached by a truly great poet and cannot be imitated intellectually. The Sequel to the Monkey's Raincoat in , appearing 4 years after Basho's death, is concerned with the seasons, traveling, and religion. It contains some of Basho's last and most mature poems.
