Summary Kakinomoto no Hitomaro (fl ca 690) is generally regarded as one of the pre-eminent poets of premodern Japan. This study foregrounds the process of his reception and canonization as a deity of Japanese poetry. It offers a fresh perspective on this familiar literary figure through his placement within the broader context of Japanese poetic culture.
