幸田文 , 幸田文 生誕116 周年 Aya Kōda
Today’s the Search Engine Google is celebrating Aya Kōda’s 116th Birthday with attractive Doodle artwork in the Japan 幸田文 on September 1, 2020. A Japanese novelist, essayist, and feminist Aya Kōda, widely revered as one of the most luminary Japanese authors of her time.
In his writing, Mr. Kada talked about family relationships, gender roles, traditional Japanese culture, etc. and deepened his relationship with kimono.
Aya Koda was born on that day in 1904 in Tokyo, the capital of Japan. Her father, Rokane Koda, is one of Japan’s most respected authors, and she began writing at the age of 43 with an essay to a literary magazine.
In the 1940s and 1950s, Koda honed her fascinating style through the eccentric Lohan and a series of similar autobiographical essays that documented her life. Despite her surprising literary success, for a few months she stopped writing to work as a maid in a geisha house. Mr. Kada’s experience among the women in the kimono inspired the 1955 debut novel “Nagarel” (“Flowing”), cited as an important turning point in her career.
Based on his experience at that time, he won the 3rd Shinchosha Literature Award in 1956 for the novel “Flowing” (published in 1956), which has been serialized since 1955. In addition, he received the 7th Yomiuri Literature Award in 1956 for his “black hem” and the 12th Women’s Literature Award for his “combat”. Became a member of the Japan Academy of Arts in 1976.
Today’s Doodle artwork depicts Mr. Kada in a kimono, and his first essay collection from 1958 to 1959 featured a cover made of hand-sewn kimono fabric. The background of the Doodle artwork is Falunji Temple in Nara, Japan. The Koda family had a strong connection with the stupa, and when the first Falunji fire struck by a lightning strike in 1944, Mr. Koda collected donations to fund the reconstruction of the 1970s. Koda continued to produce prolific works. Many are in her 23-volume career collection, published between 1994 and 1997.
