14211502
a Japanese poet. He came from a humble family from the province of Kii or ?mi, and died in Hakone on September 1, 1502. S?gi was a Zen monk from the Shokokuji temple in Kyoto and he studied poetry, both waka and renga. In his 30's he became a professional renga poet. He is best-remembered for his renga, wherein two or more poets collaborate to create a poem, by writing alternate stanzas. In S?gi's day, such renga were typically 100 verses in length. Arising from the court tradition of waka, renga was cultivated by the warrior class as well as by courtiers, and some of the best renga poets, such as S?gi, were commoners.
