About the Author

NATSUME SOSEKI (1867-1916) is one of the great writers of the modern world. Educated at Tokyo Imperial University, he was sent to England in 1900 as a government scholar. As one of the first Japanese writers to be influenced by Western culture, his various works are read by virtually all Japanese, and contemporary authors in Japan continue to be influenced by his uvre.

Reviews

'A brilliant piece of narrative ... Kokoro is exactly what you would ask a novel to be ... its effect is so fresh, so particular to itself ... There is no more exhilarating experience than this sort of discovery ...Soseki manipulates every detail with the same thrilling mastery.' - Spectator 'Sparsely populated, simple but perfect ...it is a melancholy but stoical study in lonliness, guilt and self hatred ... recalls Turgenev both in its economy and perfect symmetry of architecture.' - Sunday Telegraph 'Great sensitivity and insight' - Sunday Times 'A fascinating book, written with the most beautiful lucidity: it is subtle, nostalgic and persuasive.' - Scotsman
