Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Prose. Born into a wealthy family, Hagiwara Sakutaro (1886-1942) was able as a young man to devote himself to poetry. His major works, written in 1917 and 1923, were HOWLING AT THE MOON and BLUE, both collected in this volume, along with a substantial selection of poems from other books and a complete translation of "Cat Town," a prose-poem roman. These works transformed modern Japanese poetry, and changed forever the face of the future poetic landscape in Japan. Noted translator Hiroaki Sato, who has also translated Miyazawa Kenji, Yoshioka Minoru and Takahashi Mutsuo, beautifully reveals Hagiwara's major contribution to 20th century Japanese poetry.
