Thus Fuji pays homage to the rich cultural history of wisteria, drawing on its
classical associations, such as its relation to the pine and the significance of the
color lavender. The renga-esque use of the poetic and lexical associations ofa
flower, a tree, or another plant is also a salient characteristic of these waka-based

yoriai (Linked-Verse Lexical Links, 1494), were woven together, particularly in
the song and ...

& Nesbitt, The Cultural History of Plants (2005) and also Kochhar's Economic

Thomas G. Harding, Ben J. Wallace. PART I Perspectives on Culture History
INTRODUCTION "Culture history" is the label we give to anthropologists' attempts
to reconstruct the history of preliterate societies — that is, societies that have left
no written accounts of their activities. From the point of view of the documents-
