Hatsu shigure saru mo komino wo hoshige nari the first cold shower; even the monkey seems to want a little coat of straw. 1 and 3 are by Basho, 2 is by Ryokan Many changes from the 13 th -16 th century drew Japan from the medieval ages to the early modern age. Urban commoners began to emerge as a powerful social and economic force. The advent of han schools for samurai and terakoya temple schools for commoners made education available to the masses. Printing books instead of painstakingly hand-writing manuscripts made reading wildly popular, and the colloquial literature and poetry that emerged would become a dynamic social force. At the forefront of this revolution was haikai no renga. Haikai no Renga was popular linked verse that opened with a hokku verse. Shiki, a writer during the late 1800’s, would later coin the term “haiku”. Haikai attempted to recast the ‘poetic essence’ of classical poetry, juxtaposing archaic traditions with popular culture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
