Omschrijving

Anri Yasuda demonstrates that by exploring the often conflicting yet powerful pull of aesthetic sentiments, major authors of the late Meiji (1868–1912) and Taishō (1912–1926) periods illuminated themes and perspectives that resonated broadly in modern Japanese society.

In this bold rereading of four literary giants from the Meiji-Taishō period—Sōseki, Ōgai, Akutagawa, and Mushanokōji—Anri Yasuda deftly analyzes their aesthetics while also revealing the ideology and critical engagement that lie behind their artistic ideals. Placing the writers in dialogue with each other, Yasuda shows how they understood ‘literature’ as a conceptual register to think through real-world questions, connecting closely with their subject matter and their readers, then and now.

In this important book, Yasuda takes on the perennially pressing question of literature’s value in society through investigating the aesthetic philosophies of key modern Japanese writers. Her deft close readings of texts that compare the literary and visual arts are remarkably illuminating.

Anri Yasuda offers a fresh perspective on the aesthetics of modern Japanese literature. Focusing on major Japanese novelists who delved into questions of beauty at the theoretical, critical, and practical levels, she offers readings of their works featuring visual artists that spur us to gain inspiration from their intellectual, emotional, and sensual engagements with a world that was striated by cultural, political, and social dichotomies that, while not the same, echo our own.

Anri Yasuda is an assistant professor of Japanese in the Department of East Asian Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Virginia.
