Mountain/Home: New Translations from Japan
Editor: Stewart, Frank; Lowitz, Leza;
Mountain / Home presents new translations of Japanese works from the medieval period to the present. The volume opens with selections from "One Hundred Literary Views of Mount Fuji," a collection of Japanese writing showing the ways in which the mountain, more than any other national symbol, has represented the soul of the country. Sacred home of the gods and an emblem of romantic love in medieval Japan, the mountain becomes, in the Edo Period, a symbol of the transcience of all life. In the darkest years of the twentieth century, a dramatic change occurs when the image of Mount Fuji is manipulated to reinforce Japanese imperialism. The national self-image changes once again after World War Two, and despite the commercialization of an icon, the mountain retains its integrity.
