The most famous Tanka female poet of Japan.  Tanka is a genre of Japanese Classical Poetry, and one of the major genres of Japanese literature. 

Yosano Akiko was born 1878-1942. Tangled Hair is the most famous works. of her.

Despite this critical reaction, it was widely read and became a sort of lighthouse for free-thinkers of her time. Her first book, by far her best known, brought a passionate individualism to traditional tanka poetry, unlike any other work of the late Meiji period.

The majority are love poems through which Akiko expresses her feelings towards Tekkan Yosano. It was through this particular collection that she set an image for herself as well as the stage for female voices in modern Japan. The poems tended to express femininity in a manner unconventional for her time, especially from a female writer.
