Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of stories, poems, and a play written in Japan during the first half of the twentieth century by major literary figures of the day. Each figure was also a "cross-over" writer who wrote for both juvenile and adult audiences. What is perhaps most striking about these pieces and others from the period is the blurring of distinctions between writing for children and writing for adults. Much of the writing for children contains themes and subject matter found in writing for adults, and vice-versa, and the levels of stylistic sophistication in each genre are often equal.
