Honkadori was the Rokugani term for a specific type of allusion, a famous convention incorporated in the tanka poetry. The honkadori was a phrase alluding to or directly quoting an existing older poem. The intention was to re-interpret a famous or poetic line by casting it in a different light, to demonstrate knowledge and intimacy with literature, and to honor authors or ancestors who inspired the poet.
