Kwaidan Ghost stories ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1964 and 2006 in Japanese and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A quartet of ghost stories based on the writings of Lafcadio Hearn, a 19th century Orientalist, stories collected on his travels in the Japanese countryside and from the well established Japanese tradition of kwaidan (weird tales). Ghosts in Japanese culture are the spirits of those who died a violent death and did not undergo the ceremony allowing them to travel to meet their ancestors. The first story, Black Hair, is about a samurai who deserts his wife and then returns to her only to find that all is not what it appears to be. Snow Woman tells of a peasant who falls under the spell of a sorceress. In the third story, shot in the manner of a scroll painting, Hoichi the Earless is a bewitched blind performer who, to his cost, recites poetry before the ghosts of the nobility. The reflexive fourth story, In a Cup of Tea, tries to account for the inconclusiveness of many Japanese ghost stories
