As in the original volumes, the stories are grouped by theme: ill-fated love affairs, animals who return favors, people rescued by their reverence for the Lotus Sutra, mysterious transformations, or enchantment by foxes. Warning: Do not try this at home. To have 90 of these tales so beautifully translated is a victory for scholarship -- but what a shame it would be if this book remained only in the hands of scholars. Keep this book on your nightstand: its tiny elegant stories are the perfect companion for a sleepless night.

Walaupun demikian, penulisannya terhenti pada judul-judul cerita sedangkan isi cerita tidak ada. Berdasarkan karakteristik tokoh dan peristiwa, Konjaku Monogatari diperkirakan disusun setelah tahun an hingga tahun Berdasarkan alasan tersebut, buku ini kemungkinan besar mulai ditulis pada tahun an pada masa Kaisar Shirakawa atau Kaisar Toba menjalankan pemerintahan dari balik biara.

Pengarang[ sunting sunting sumber ] Hingga saat ini, nama pengarang atau penyunting sama sekali tidak diketahui. Bila Konjaku Monogatari dianggap sebagai edisi revisi dan perluasan dari Uji Dainagon Monogatari , maka penulisnya adalah seorang dainagon dari Uji yang bernama Minamoto no Takakuni. Namun penjelasan bahwa pengarang Konjaku Monogatari adalah Minamoto no Takakuni telah dibantah.

Perpustakaan menerima naskah tersebut sebagai hadiah pada bulan Oktober Naskah Suzuka yang dimiliki Perpustakaan Universitas Kyoto terdiri dari 9 volume.

Susunan[ sunting sunting sumber ] Cerita dikelompokkan menjadi tiga bagian: volume India cerita , volume Tiongkok cerita , dan volume Jepang cerita. Setelah itu, masing-masing bagian dilanjutkan dengan cerita keduniawian. Cerita disusun secara kronologis, dimulai dari cerita yang paling tua.

Walaupun demikian, sebagian cerita juga memakai kalimat pembuka dan penutup yang lain. Selain itu, dua atau tiga buah kisah yang mirip dikelompokkan menjadi satu. Sumber cerita[ sunting sunting sumber ] Cerita yang dikumpulkan dalam Konjaku Monogatari bukanlah cerita asli, melainkan hasil kutipan dari buku-buku lain.

Walaupun demikian, volume berisi cerita keduniawian asal Jepang memuat banyak cerita keduniawian yang tidak diketahui sumbernya. Cerita dari zaman yang sama, seperti kisah Putri Kaguya juga memakai kalimat pembuka "Ima wa mukashi", sehingga cerita lisan juga mungkin digunakan sebagai sumber cerita. Gaya penulisannya sederhana tidak terlalu dipenuhi retorika. Dibandingkan literatur klasik lainnya, Konjaku Monogatari termasuk lebih mudah dibaca.

Sementara itu, penggunaan Gitaigo kata sifat yang menjelaskan keadaan alam menjadikan cerita menjadi hidup dan pembaca seolah-olah hadir dalam cerita. Tempo cerita lancar dan banyak memakai bahasa percakapan sehari-hari tidak seperti lazimnya karya sastra zaman Heian.

Cerita ditulis sedetail mungkin, dan sedapat mungkin menerangkan lokasi tempat kejadian dan penjelasan tentang tokoh utama dalam cerita. Bila keterangan tersebut tidak ada, penulis sengaja menyisakan tempat kosong pada bagian kalimat yang bisa diisi di kemudian hari.

Banyaknya tempat-tempat kosong yang belum diisi juga menjadi ciri khas buku ini.

Konjaku Monogatarishū

The Sino-Japanese reading of this phrase is konjaku, and it is from the Chinese-style reading that the collection is named. Since it is an anthology rather than a single tale, however, the longer title is more accurate. The collection emphasizes the path in which Buddhism takes to Japan in order to further understand what Buddhism means to Japan. Firstly, Buddhism leaves India and becomes very popular in China. As many things have been borrowed from the Chinese, Buddhism then travels to Japan. Each move leads to a morphing of the basics of this religion so by that time it arrived in Japan, it became a new Buddhism for the Japanese.
