Modern Japanese Literature is Donald Keene's critically acclaimed companion volume to his landmark Anthology of Japanese Literature. Now considered the standard canon of modern Japanese writing translated into English, Modern Japanese Literature includes concise introductions to the writers, as well as a historical introduction by Professor Keene. Includes: "Growing Up" by Ichiyo, a lyrical story of pre-adolescence in the 90s; Natsume's story of "Botchan, " an ill-starred and ineffectual Huck Finn; Nagai's "The Sumida River"; Kokomitsu's Kafkaesque "Time"; Kawabata's "The Mole"; "Firefly Hunt"; a glimpse into Tanizaki's masterpiece "Thin Snow"; and the postwar work of such writers as Dazai and Mishima.

Written by visiting Japanese men and women between 1860 and 1920, these are their impressions on visiting the USA, Europe and China. The range of responses, from delight to disillusionment, comes from writers, poets, officials, politicians, and others, and also includes fascinating insights into domestic Japanese events, such as the 1877 Satsuma rebellion. Wonderful history.
