quote
In Buson’s day, a lot of serious-minded haikai poets were closely associated with the sinophile intellectuals that helped give rise to the idealization of bunjin, particularly those poets who wrote kanshi. Among his fellow poets and friends, Miyake Shozan (1718-1081) and Kuroyanagi Shoha (1727-71) exerted great influences on him in broadening and deepening his knowledge of Chinese literature.

Shozan was known for publishing kanshi anthologies, and one of his most important works was his 1763 Haikai Selected Old Verses, an influential Basho Revival collection of verses that was modeled on one of the most greatest Chinese verse anthologies, Tang Selected Poems. Buson’s frequent use of imagery alluding to Chinese literature was in part due to Shozan’s influence.

I brought my daughter-in-law

yome is also used by men talking about their wifes. So maybe he brought his wife to the shrine to pray that she makes better robes for him.
