Harold Wright
HAROLD WRIGHT Harold Wright has been poking around trash piles and treasure troves of Japanese literature and culture for over half a century. He discovered Japanese poetry while working as a construction inspector in Yamaguchi Prefecture in 1952. After that initial adventure in Japan, his life has revolved around bookstores, libraries, and universities in Hawaii, New York, Tokyo, Kyoto, and eventually back in Ohio, where he taught at Antioch college until his retirement in 2005. In 1986 he received a National Endowment for the Arts Grant to translate a second book of the renowned poet Tanikawa Shuntaro. Living and writing in Kyoto for two years, Harold discovered the campus of Kyoto Seika University and helped start up the Antioch Education Abroad exchange program in Japan, with KSU as their unique "sister college. He also discovered while living in Kyoto, not only Kyoto Journal but also the famed Kyoto Connection, where he was a regular performer of poetry and "trashy" plays like Ogata Gomi. Currently Harold and his wife, Jonatha, are active as professional storytellers. Performances and publications are listed on their website: www.jonathaandharold.com. One of the delights of Harold's life, however, has been those times he walked the streets of Kyoto, after all these years, only to be stopped by someone saying, "Hey, you're the Big Trash guy!

Harold Wright first came to Antioch in 1973 as an adjunct from the Ohio State University where he had been teaching Japanese Language and Literature.
With grants from the Japan Foundation and Great Lakes College Association, he was eventually able to create a Japan program here at Antioch College where he taught various courses in language, literature, and even Japanese art history until he retired in 2005. It was in 1975 he offered his first class in "Japanese Environment and Aesthetics" which resulted in students constructing the original Tea House. Harold's own education in Japanese studies was gained primarily from his work as an undergraduate and for his master's degree at the University of Hawaii, as a Ford Foundation Fellow at Columbia University, and as a Fulbright scholar at Keio University in Tokyo. His extensive publications include numerous translations of both modern and classical Japanese poetry. He and wife Jonatha traveled to Japan for over a decade with the Antioch Education Abroad Program in Kyoto, gathering stories from books and the people they met. Harold translated these stories, and they adapted them for oral telling.

The Japanese Tea House project began in 1975 as a summer, outdoor, hands-on class that continued to be offered by Harold Wright at Antioch College for a number of years and in a number of departments.
All the work was done by students, and occasionally volunteer faculty, all materials were found in nature or at least recycled. Many students took advantage of the Independent Study format to do extensive work on the project including gardening and landscaping. Engineering majors gained credit in their field by designing the circulating ponds and waterfall systems; science majors researched and planted trees and other plants including moss. Tea was often served at the Tea House during intermissions at amphitheater plays. Harold and his TAs often offered outdoor classes in language and Japanese culture in the garden especially in spring and autumn. Harold translated these tales and they adapted them for oral telling. The Japanese Tea House: Thatch, Mud and Learning by Harold Wright Foundry Theater Lobby, 920 Corry Street The Japanese Tea House project began in 1975 as a summer, outdoor, hands-on class that continued to be offered by Harold Wright at Antioch College for a number of years and in a number of departments. All the work was done by students, and occasionally volunteer faculty, all materials were found in nature or at least recycled. Many students took advantage of the Independent Study format to do extensive work on the project including gardening and landscaping. Engineering majors gained credit in their field by designing the circulating ponds and waterfall systems; science majors researched and planted trees and other plants including moss. Tea was often served at the Tea House during intermissions at amphitheater plays. Harold and his TAs often offered outdoor classes in language and Japanese culture in the garden especially in spring and autumn. It was a favorite place to hold poetry classes. Many haiku poems were inspired by that tea house and garden. A description of the Tea House class was at one time published in The New York Times as part of a recruitment campaign for the college. The structure, once listed as one of the few authentic tea environments in the US, was a certainly a conversational piece of student-built architecture in Yellow Springs until it was accidentally burned down in the 1980s, At one time a delighted Japanese visitor made a calligraphed sign for the garden naming it GOBO-AN or the "Burdock Hermitage. Harold will include in his talk on the history of the Japanese Tea House photographs, a video and other documents. 1,300 Years of Japanese Poetry in One Hour by Harold Wright Yellow Springs Arts Council Community Gallery, 111 Corry Street Thirteen Hundred Years of Japanese Poetry is a lively reading of Harold Wright's own translations of his favorite poems. Beginning with a folksong or two from the most ancient times and the earliest love poems of the 8th century, the reading moves through examples of aristocrat tanka to the development battle poetry of the samurai. Then after offering Buddhist and Shinto inspired poems, he will read a number of 17 syllable haiku and the more humorous senryu. After reading from the poetry of the Empress Meiji and the Empress Shoken, who ruled during the modernization of Japan after 1868, the one hour program will conclude with readings of Western inspired free verse poets such as the "father of modern poetry" Hagiwara Sakutaro and the contemporary poet Tanikawa Shuntaro who, with Harold as his translator, was invited to perform at such places as The Library of Congress, the Guggenheim Museum and even Antioch College! CDs of the historic readings, as well as Harold's A Story of Japanese Poetry Vol. I and II, will be made available for later listening.
