Kiyoko Kurihara ・ 栗原潔子

2015.01.26 (Mon)

Kiyoko Kurihara was a poet born in Yurihama’s Hashizu area and was the younger sister of cancer researcher Warō Nakahara. In 1913, she began training under Nobutsuna Sasaki (a well-renowned Japanese poet and literary scholar) at the age of 16 and quickly made a name for herself. Unheard of in those days, she released her first anthology when she was only 22. She later took up writing novels before working as an editor for the literary journal Kokoro no Hana (Flower of the Heart) from around 1950.

橋津(湯梨浜町橋津)生まれ、中原和郎(なかはらわろう)の妹で歌人。1913(大正2)年16才で佐々木信綱(ささきのぶつな)の門に入り、早くから頭角をあらわし、当時としては例外的に早い22才で第一歌集「潔子集」を刊行。小説を書いた時期もありました。昭和20年代後半から「心の花」編集委員を務めました。
