This reference is a comprehensive guide to his life and writings. Included in the volume are hundreds of alphabetically arranged entries for individual works by Hearn and collections of his writings, for members of his family, and for the colleagues and acquaintances who figured prominently in his life.

While the book is first and foremost a guide to Hearn, it additionally shows how Japanese society was first presented to the West
