Hikikomori : adolescence without end by Tamaki Saitō( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first English translation of a controversial Japanese best seller that made the public aware of the social problem of hikikomori, or 'withdrawal' -- a phenomenon estimated to involve as many as one million Japanese adolescents and young adults who have withdrawn from society, retreating to their rooms for months or years and severing almost all ties to the outside world. Saitō Tamaki's work of popular psychology provoked a national debate about the causes and extent of the condition. Drawing on his own clinical experience with hikikomori patients, Saitō creates a working definition of social withdrawal and explains its development

Forest of eyes : selected poems of Tada Chimako by Chimako Tada( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Japan's most important modern poets, Tada Chimako (1930-2003) gained prominence in her native country for her sensual, frequently surreal poetry and fantastic imagery. Although Tada's writing is an essential part of postwar Japanese poetry, her use of themes and motifs from European, Near Eastern, and Mediterranean history, mythology, and literature, as well as her sensitive explorations of women's inner lives make her very much a poet of the world.--University of California Press

From one of the foremost poets in contemporary Japan comes this entrancing memoir that traces a boy's childhood and its intersection with the rise of the Japanese empire and World War II. Originally published in 1970, this translation is the first available in English. In twelve chapters that visit and revisit critical points in his boyhood, Twelve Views from the Distance presents a vanished time and place through the eyes of an accomplished poet. Recounting memories from his youth, Mutsuo Takahashi captures the full range of his internal life as a boy, shifting between hi
The book of the dead by Shinobu Origuchi( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1939 and extensively revised in 1943, The Book of the Dead, loosely inspired by the tale of Isis and Osiris from ancient Egypt, is a sweeping historical romance that tells a gothic tale of love between a noblewoman and a ghost in eighth-century Japan. Its author, Orikuchi Shinobu, was a well-received novelist, distinguished poet, and an esteemed scholar. He is often considered one of the fathers of Japanese folklore studies, and The Book of the Dead is without a doubt the most important novel of Orikuchi's career--and it is a book like no other. Here, for the first time, is the complete English translation of Orikuchi's masterwork, whose vast influence is evidenced by multiple critical studies dedicated to it and by its many adaptations, which include an animated film and a popular manga. This translation features an introduction by award-winning translator Jeffrey Angles discussing the historical background of the work as well as its major themes: the ancient origins of the Japanese nation, the development of religion in a modernizing society, and the devotion necessary to create a masterpiece. Also included are three chapters from The Mandala of Light by Japanese intellectual historian Ando Reiji, who places the novel and Orikuchi's thought in the broader intellectual context of early twentieth-century Japan. The Book of the Dead focuses on the power of faith and religious devotion, and can be read as a parable illustrating the suffering an artist must experience to create great art. Readers will soon discover that a great deal lies hidden beneath the surface of the story; the entire text is a modernist mystery waiting to be decoded"--Éditeur

Writing the love of boys : representations of male-male desire in the literature of Murayama Kaita and Edogawa Ranpo by Jeffrey Angles( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapter Four examines Ranpo's essays on representations of male-male desire in Kaita's work, which he saw as embodying an innocent and especially poignant form of boyish affection. These essays, along with Ranpo's autobiographical essays about his crushes on other schoolboys during his youth, implicitly attempt to disassociate the love of boys from the moralistic and pathologizing rhetoric of sexology. As Chapter Five shows, some of Ranpo's early fiction, including "Ningen isu" ("The human chair," 1925), "Issun-bōhi" ("The dwarf," 1926-1927), "Ryōi no hate" ("The fruits of curiosity-hunting," 1930), shows an ambivalent attitude toward male homoeroticism. These works contain caveats reassuring readers about the "strangeness" of male homoeroticism even though they cater to the scopophilic curiosity of readers by incorporating scenes of male-male attraction. Similar dynamics are visible in the novel Kotō no oni (The demon of the lonely isle, 1929-30), which features a man who prefers sleeping with men. Although the narrative voice describes the character's feelings in sensational terms, at other times, Ranpo allows the character to describe his feelings in ways that make them comprehensible to the audience. Chapter Six examines Ranpo's essays from the 1930s on same-sex desire in the writing of other authors, including Edward Carpenter, John Addington Symonds, and Walt Whitman. These essays represent a product of Ranpo's ongoing explorations of the meaning and historical manifestations of same-sex love. Although these essays deal gingerly with the subject of male homoeroticism, these essays, like Ranpo's autobiographical essays, defend boyish love and male camaraderie as beautiful and socially useful while arguing for the important position of male-male desire has played in literary history
