Book Description

Shiga Naoya was a giant of Japanese literature but he is barely known outside Japan. This book is the first study of Shiga to explore in depth his affinities - both aesthetic and philosophic - with the long tradition of Zen art.

Reviews

'This book provides an excellent entrance into the life and works of modern Japanese writer Shiga Naoya. The translations are fascinating An invaluable contribution to studies of the profound intersection of religion and literature in Japanese culture.' - Steven Heine, Journal of Asian and African Studies
