This course is a continuation of L05 460 which reinforces and expands the student's understanding of classical Japanese grammar through close reading of texts drawn from the Heian, medieval and Edo periods, and introduces the basics of reading hentaigana, the cursive form of kana found in manuscript and woodblock print books. Readings are in classical literary texts using materials from standard modern annotated editions as well as the introduction of skills necessary for reading original texts, including kambun and hentaigana. Undergraduates enroll in the 400-level section; 500-level section is for graduate students only. Prerequisite: L05 413 or L05 460 (grade of B- or better), or concurrent registration in L05 413.
