Booknews

Discusses Japan and Japanese culture as depicted by 17 Western writers, beginning about a century ago with Lafcadio Hearn, regarded as the first great literary "emissary" from the West, and picking the story up again in the 1930s and the next six decades. Japan tended to baffle these Western writers with its ambiguities and unexpected juxtapositions. Includes interviews with several literary figures, and a foreword on the interplay of Anglo-Japanese literary sensibilities. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
