Дорожные записи в дневнике монахини Абуцу "Идзаёи никки": связь с литературной традицией

С. 59-86.

The article is dedicated to the travel records in the diary of «Izayoi nikki» written by the nun Abutsu (1222? –1283), which reflected the great literary era. Abutsu describes his journey in dark colors, a drizzling rain, a traveling dress that does not dry out of tears, and endless fear for the future of poetry, for the lives of children and her own are the leitmotifs of the diary. By this diary, Abutsu declares her readiness to become an adherent of the poetic tradition of the house of Mikohidari after the death of her husband, the famous poet Fujiwara-no Tameie, and transfer this knowledge to their son Tamesuke. The travel records are the central part of the diary, small in volume, but containing an impressive number of quotations and allusions to the most significant works of predecessors. The diary is written in the travel diary paradigm, which formed by the second half of the Kamakura period, and is similar in composition to the diaries «Kaidōki» and «Tōkan kikō» written in the same 13th century. For 14 days, Abutsu takes notes on her forced journey from Heian to Kamakura: short prose sketches frame 55 poems of tankа that she composes while visiting or passing by famous places on the way Tōkaidō. The article also provides a commented translation of the travel records in Russian.
