Abstract

Hōjōki is a Japanese classic composed by Kamo no Chōmei in the early Kamakura period. The first part recounts the traumatic experiences of disasters in Chōmei’s early life, and the second part depicts his life in seclusion in his late years. This paper summarizes previous research that approaches Hōjōki as a religious artistic text, and provides new insight by introducing models in cognitive psychology and psychoanalysis to reinterpret Hōjōki as Chōmei’s attempt to work through trauma.
