Kamo no Chomri’s Hojoki/Record of My-Ten-Foot-Square Hut (in Kenko and Chomei: Essays in Iddleness and Hokoki, pp.vii-18 plus notes on pp. 147-152)

Themes:
1. the feeling of mappo (“end of dharma”/”end time”) in Hojoki/Record of My Ten-Foot-Square Hut
2. Kamo no Chomei’s love for the quiet and stillmess of his one-room thached hut as a form of attachment/grasping (Biddhism warns against all forms of attachment/grasping)
3. the artist (in this case musician and poet/writer) as a Buddhist monk)
