- Mikado in the Taketori Monogatari -The beginning of the emperor in the history of narrative literature
In this paper, I tried to understand how Mikado(≒ the emperor) was modeled in "Taketori Monogatari" and how Mikado's molding was inherited by posterity. First, we focused on the fact that Mikado of ‟Taketori Monogatari" is the ‟walking Mikado". Mikado of "Taketori Monogatari" was a strong emperor, as can be seen from the fact that he was mobilizing 2,000 soldiers. The attitude of going out to get a woman was also full of confidence, and in that respect, there was also a part that was connected to the Mikado in Kojiki. In Kaguya Hime's protesting words, "Haya koroshi tamahi Teyokashi( = Please kill me soon)", for xample, the shadow of a woman who has been oppressed by the emperor, such as Yuryaku, appears and disappears. However, Mikado is defeated before the transformation of the princess, Kaguya Hime. Not only is he defeated, but he also shows the maiden a clinging and even obsessive attitude. Here, for example, the shadow of the Tenmu Emperor worshiping a maiden depicted in "Kaifuso" or the atmosphere of the Tenmu dynasty drunk by a Chinese fantasy novel whose main character is a maiden is strongly projected. In addition, Mikado feels embraced by another woman and chooses to live alone. The idea of such Mikado was later handed down to the Tale of the Genji Monogatari. I pointed out the flow from "kaifuso" to "Taketori Monogatari" and then "Genji Monogatari". The process in which the emperor of "Taketori Monogatari" that was formed under the influence of "Kojiki" and "Kaifu Algae" later became the prototype of Suzaku Tei of "Utsuho Monogatari" and Kiribatsu Tei of "Genji Monogatari." rgued.
