The Six Immortal Poets. A pictorial theme depicting six outstanding poets of the 9c. Designated by Ki no Tsurauki ‹IŠÑ”V(ca. 868-945) in the preface of KOKINSHUU ŒÃ¡W, the first imperial anthology compiled in 905. The six distinguished poets are: Ariwara no Narihira ÝŒ´‹Æ•½ (see *Ise monogatari-e ˆÉ¨•¨ŒêŠG), Henjou Soujou •ÕÆ‘m³ (Bishop Henjou), Kisen houshi Šìï–@Žt (Monk Kisen), Ootomo no Kuronushi ‘唺•Žå, Bun'ya no Yasuhide •¶‰®NG, and Ono no Komachi ¬–쏬’¬ (see *nanakomachi Žµ¬’¬). The term kasen (immortals of waka ˜a‰Ì or Japanese poems), which was derived from the Chinese term shixian (Jp: shisen Žå, Immortals of poems) is thought to have been adopted by the mid-10c and applied to the six poets thereafter.
