  abstract = {The contest format was used with success as a vehicle of criticism by poets in two major genres of Japanese poetry, the classical uta and the Edo-period hokku. Yet attempts to put that same format to use in linked verse, the primary poetic genre of the late medieval period (1300-1600), ended in failure. This essay will outline the history of the renga-awase, or "linked-verse contest," and also suggest a few reasons for why that history is not more substantial-the chief one deriving from the power of precedent in medieval critical habits.},
