The Outsider Within: Ten Essays on Modern Japanese Women Writers written by Tomoko Kuribayashi

 

The Outsider Within: Ten Essays on Modern Japanese Women Writers written by Tomoko Kuribayashi

Overview:

The Outsider Within contains ten articles written by new and veteran scholars of Japanese women writers, both from the U.S. and abroad, with a focus on their fictional works available in English translation. Preceded by a general introduction, which discusses the position of the Japanese woman writer as an outsider within their native society, the ten essays offer general information on Japanese women's literature, society, and culture, along with detailed analyses of individual works.

Synopsis:

Focusing on fictional works available in English translation, ten essays consider the place of 20th-century Japanese women writers as outsiders in one sense or another. Presented by Kuribayashi (U. of Wisconsin at Stevens Point) and Terasawa (Waseda U., Japan) the essays consider ways that writers flaunted femininity, critiqued the position of women in Japanese society, existed as outsiders in ways not necessarily related to their gender, and explored contemporary Japanese sexual politics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
