(p.19) Four Post-Shinkokinshū Waka
Murmured Conversations
Stanford University Press

Sasamegoto and Shinkei's other writings provide unequivocal evidence that the eighth imperial anthology, Shinkokinshū (1205), represents the apogee of waka history. Shinkei's valuation of Shinkokinshū included a third factor: Shinkokinshū-style poetry's unparalleled “success in the world” (yo ni tokimekitamaishi koto). In this chapter, Shinkei considers the work of Shōtetsu, by all accounts the major waka poet of the Muromachi period, as a revival of the superior qualities of Shinkokinshū poetry. However, the age was actually under the dominance of the conservative Nijō Yoshimoto school. Shōtetsu was not included in the Shinzoku Kokinwakashū (1439), the last of the twenty-one imperial anthologies.
