The Youth Of Things

The Youth Of Things

When he died from tuberculosis at the age of thirty-one, Kajii Motojirō had written only twenty short stories. Yet his life and work, it is argued here, sheds light on a significant moment in Japanese history and, ultimately, adds to our understanding of how modern Japanese identity developed. By the time Kajii began to write in the mid-1920s there was heated debate among his peers over “legitimate” forms of literary expression: Japanese Romantics questioned the value of a western-inspired version of modernity; others were influenced by Marxist proletarian literature or modernist experimentation; still others tried to create a distinctly Japanese fictional style that concentrated on first-person perspective, the so-called “I-novel.” There was a general sense that Japan needed to reinvent itself, but writers and artists were at odds over what form this reinvention should take. Throughout his career, Kajii drew from these various camps but belonged to none of them, making his work an invaluable indicator of a culture in crisis and transition. The Youth of Things is the first full-length book devoted to Kajii Motojirō. It brings together English translations of nearly all his completed stories with an analysis of his literature in the context of several major themes that locate him in 1920s Japan. In particular, Dodd links the writer’s work with the physical body: Kajii’s subjective literary presence was grounded first and foremost in his TB-stricken physical body, hence one cannot be studied without the other. His concerns with health and mortality drove him to play a central role in constructing a language for modern literature and to offer new insights into ideas that intrigued so many other Taishō intellectuals and writers. In addition, Kajii’s early years as a writer were strongly influenced by the cosmopolitan humanism of the White Birch (Shirakaba) school, but by the time his final work was published in the early 1930s, an environment of greater cultural introspection was beginning to take root, encapsulated in the expression “return to Japan” (nihon kaiki). Only a few years separate these two moments in time, but they represent a profound shift in the aspirations and expectations of a whole generation of writers. Through a study of Kajii’s writing, this book offers some sense of the demise of one cultural moment and the creation of another.

Rhythm And Bruise

Rhythm And Bruise

In his collection of short stories, author Yugel Losorata permits us to own his stories after we’ve read them using our own prism to understand, to appreciate, to be beguiled by his imagineered literary creations. He wrote this collection of 18 stories while finishing a novel, taking care of a family amidst an egregious pandemic, and perhaps missing performing with his band songs about love, loss, heartbreak, dreams and foibles. Rhythm and Bruise opens with ‘Open 25 Years,’ a gripping story based on a fire that burned a nightclub where over a hundred people perished — because the door was closed. ‘Two Letters’ is about a father, a son, and a president of a country. ‘True or False’ is about the rabid religiousness of a believer-wife, a dead husband, an old friend and a charismatic cult leader. ‘The Band That Never Was’ is a tale about a college band, a potential hit song, a manager with the “freakish smile” who had the drummer rolled out of the band and someone gets killed. ‘Forty Days’ is about two people who met at a hospital and got into a conversation and went separate ways to attend two separate 40-day rituals. These are just a few of the fictional short stories in the collection — created and bred in the mind of Yugel Losorata. Fictional but always personal. Find your rhythm and get bruised. Maybe and just maybe, you will stop for a while and live — and begin to thrive. (From the FOREWORD By Dr. BOY ABUNDA) The Philippines’ King Of Talk

The Book Of Sty

The Book Of Sty

The Book of Sty is a collage of intended wit usurped from the far reaches of a distended mind. Many of its exhortations are frothed in foliage spewed from battles with epileptic seizures. The Book of Sty will, at no time, supersede your intelligence, but it will challenge your imagination as you struggle to read between the lines. Provocative quips, beliefs, prayers, travels, dream stills, and apparitions are all there, waiting for the reader to reach beyond yesterday, thinking of everyday people. Parody, comedy, tragedy, and rhapsody are ingredients of both intended and distended wit. Just because you swam doesnt necessarily mean you can swim. Do not be surprised if lines in this writing set your imagination in motion and have you reaching for invisible stars. I know you already realize that heavenly stars are progenitors of fireflies. The preceding jabs at intended wit are not locked in witticism, wouldnt you say? But as intended, your imagination was distended, as you either passed the elaborations off as folly or tried to squeeze meanings from between the lines. If you are now aging/ Faster than a weavers shuttle/ Do not be afraid of mortality imaging / Look closely and you will see shadows of elapsing days as they scuttle. If your face loses just one wrinkle from just one intended piece of wit, saying, or Bible verse, then the Book of Sty will have served its purpose.

See A Side Of Bridlington

The Bridlington Library Writers' Group was formed in 2011 and after nearly two years of honing their craft, a number of the writers decided to put together a collection of their work. This could be of any genre and subject, with the single proviso that it was linked to Bridlington in some way. The book features both published and unpublished authors and I am sure you will find the pieces submitted for this anthology interesting, informative and written to a very high standard.

Representing The Other In Modern Japanese Literature

Representing The Other In Modern Japanese Literature

Representing the Other in Modern Japanese Literature looks at the ways in which authors writing in Japanese in the twentieth century constructed a division between the ‘Self’ and the ‘Other’ in their work. Drawing on methodology from Foucault and Lacan, the clearly presented essays seek to show how Japanese writers have responded to the central question of what it means to be ‘Japanese’ and of how best to define their identity. Taking geographical, racial and ethnic identity as a starting point to explore Japan's vision of 'non-Japan', representations of the Other are examined in terms of the experiences of Japanese authors abroad and in the imaginary lands envisioned by authors in Japan. Using a diverse cross-section of writers and texts as case studies, this edited volume brings together contributions from a number of leading international experts in the field and is written at an accessible level, making it essential reading for those working in Japanese studies, colonialism, identity studies and nationalism.
