Book Description Columbia University Press, 1972. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good in Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York and London. 1972. Columbia University Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 150 pages. hardcover. Ueda Akinari or Ueda Shusei (July 25, 1734, Osaka – August 8, 1809, Kyoto) was a Japanese author, scholar and waka poet, and a prominent literary figure in 18th century Japan. He was an early writer in the yomihon genre and his two masterpieces, Ugetsu Monogatari (‘Tales of Rain and the Moon’) and Harusame Monogatari (‘Tales of Spring Rain’), are central to the canon of Japanese literature. KENGI HAMADA a native of Hawaii, is an editorial contributor to the bilingual Hawaii Times and is the author and translator of several books. His previous translations include a study of contemporary Japanese literature and THE LIFE OF AN AMOROUS MAN, by Ihara Saikaku. The jacket design is an adaptation of a woodblock print illustration for ‘Bewitched,’ one of the TALES OF MOONLIGHT AND RAIN. Reproduced on the endpapers are pages from the preface and text of the eighteenth-century edition. 0231036310. keywords: 41173. inventory # 25164. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Published originally in 1776 in woodblock print, Ugetsu Monogatari, or TALES OF MOONLIGHT AND RAIN, is a collection of nine eerie tales probing spiritual values and aberrations in a historical-traditional perspective. Having established himself while still a young man as a master of the Ukiyo Soshi, or realist, literary school, Uyeda Akinari abruptly turned his back on this genre in middle age and began to delve into the rich heritage of folklore and superstition, both Japanese and Chinese. Basing his stories on well-known tales of historical vintage, Akinari reshaped and retold them in elegant prose, portraying through these simple tales the interaction of history, mores, superstitions and religious beliefs, and thereby raising them to the level of literary art. As is pointed out by Professor Takata Mamoru, Japan’s foremost authority on Akinari, in his introductory essay, Akinari’s literary style is a unique blend of classical and anticlassical elements, employing original writing techniques. This Edo masterpiece is illustrated with reproductions of woodblock prints that appeared in the original edition. Bookseller Inventory # 25164
