ABSTRACT

This paper examines the meaning and expressive characteristics of “Wind” in Hōsai’s haiku. In Hōsai haiku’s vocabulary, “Wind” is the most common subject. The subject of “Wind” is prevalent in Hōsai’s vocabulary, often associated with nature, life, and himself. By exploring the relationship between the “Wind” and the object, Hōsai explores the seasonal sense of the “Wind,” the life and death of the organism, and his personal experiences. Hōsai’s “Wind” come into play as the wind that signals the change of season, the wind of fruit, representing the various sorrows in life and the stimulant of self-reflection. For Hōsai, the “Wind” is a particular medium that evokes force majeure, willlessness, and fate as a human being. He realizes the rationality of nature, accepts his environment and situation, and makes his own world of haiku.
