Japanese Writers And The West written by Sumie Okada

 

Japanese Writers And The West written by Sumie Okada

Overview:

This book concludes Sumie Okada's trilogy concerning cultural relationships between Japan and the West. This volume discusses six Japanese authors (Soseki, Mishima, Akiko Yosano, Hiroshi Yosano, Endo and Murakami), analyzing the encounter between their traditional Japanese group-consciousness and western individualism. It also covers Endo's student days in Lyon, and his relationship with the humanist Françoise Pastre, appending a moving account by her sister Geneviève.

Synopsis:

The other volumes of British educated Okada's (English, Immaculate Heart U., Kagoshima, Japan) trilogy, Edmund Blunden and Japan and Western Writers in Japan, concern western writers in Japan. Here she examines the impact on six Japanese writers of their time in Europe and the US, focusing on the comparative degree to which their writing and lives were affected by the group-dominated mentality of Japan and by western individualism.
