Annotated Japanese Literary Gems. Volume 1: Stories by Tawada Yoko, Hayashi Kyoko, Nakagami Kenji
- About the Book
The first volume of Annotated Japanese Literary Gems, makes available representative examples of annotated Japanese short stories and novellas from Meiji to the present. This multi-volume set of books—six volumes are planned—provides rubi for nearly all kanji at first use. Each story is also included in a plain-text version. Along with the extensive annotations provided, the collection serves as a resource for students of modern Japanese literature and can also be used as an intermediate to advanced language text. The volume is printed Japanese-style, with pages ordered from right to left.The present volume, the first in the collection, introduces stories by three important postwar authors: “Readers on the Train,” “A Dictionary Village,” and “A Town Called Z” from Fox-Possessed Moon, by Tawada Yoko; My Friend, by Hayashi Kyoko; and Trees and Grass, by Nakagami Kenji.
