Commentaries about Sun Tzu

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Is this possible for you to transcript (and translate ?) this old chinese text :

That's commentaries about the Sun tzu "Art of War" :

 

故用間有五:有鄉間,有內間,有反間,有死間,有生間。

 

Thank you for your help.

鄉間講義開宗集註作因間直解正義作鄉間直解曰舊本
作鄉間今從之??下之文以鄉間可為是故今從之識者校正之故者疑證古人之言
曰舉五間之目

 

What are those odd symbols here and there? Is this a Japanese copy?

@Publius, I can't see the image clearly enough to judge on my phone, but you may be right. When Japanese kids are taught what they call KanBun (汉文), classical texts of either Chinese or Japanese origin, the texts are pretreated with a prescribed series of marks that allows the student to rearrange the sentences mentally to correspond to modern Japanese grammatical usage, and almost read the text as if it were a modern Japanese sentence.

 

I'm afraid I don't have an example explained in English to show you, but there's probably quite a few available on the Japanese web explained in Japanese.

I just looked at the text on another device, and the little  katakana (okurigana) squiggles on the right side of the text corresponding to modern Japanese verb pronunciation, and the little "relocate" or "parts of speech" identifiers on the left are quite obvious. 

 

I vote for Japanese textbook as the origin of the OP's text.
