The secret window : ideal worlds in Tanizaki's fiction by Anthony H Chambers( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the time of his death in 1965 at the age of seventy-nine, Tanizaki Jun'ichiro had been writing fiction, plays, essays, poems, and translations almost without interruption for more than fifty-five years. In this series of meditations on seven of Tanizaki's novels and novellas, the renowned translator Anthony Chambers explores the attempt by Tanizaki's characters to construct ideal worlds: fantasies that were far removed from the concerns of everyday life and were, for the most part, unattainable. Chambers focuses on the thread of fantasy that Tanizaki weaves throughout his work; he examines the writer's subtle use of storytelling devices to evoke his characters' alternate sense of reality and encourage the reader's participation in their fantasies. Using his intimate knowledge of Tanizaki's works, Chambers superbly evokes the beauty and truth Tanizaki's characters find in their ideal worlds
Tales of moonlight and rain : Japanese Gothic tales by Akinari Ueda( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1776, the nine gothic tales in this collection are Japan's finest and most celebrated examples of the literature of the occult. They subtly merge the world of reason with the realm of the uncanny and exemplify the period's fascination with the strange and the grotesque. They were also the inspiration for Mizoguchi Kenji's brilliant 1953 film Ugetsu."--BOOK JACKET

Red roofs & other stories by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tanizaki Jun'ichiro (1886-1965), the author of Naomi; A Cat, a Man, and Two Women; and The Makioka Sisters, was one of the great writers of the twentieth century. The four stories in this volume date from the first and second decades of Tanizaki's long career and reflect themes that appear throughout his work: exoticism, sexuality, sadomasochism, contrasts between traditional and modern societies, disparities between appearance and reality, the power of dreams, amorality, an interest in cinema, and a fascination with the techniques of storytelling. The stories--translated into English here for the first time--are: "The Strange Case of Tomoda and Matsunaga" ("Tomoda to Matsunaga no hanashi," 1926), "A Night in Qinhuai" ("Shinwai no yo," 1919), "The Magician" ("Majutsushi," 1917), and "Red Roofs" ("Akai yane," 1925)"--
A Tanizaki feast : the international symposium in venice( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The secret history of the Lord of Musashi ; and, Arrowroot by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

17 editions published between 1982 and 2003 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Secret History of the Lord of Musashi and Arrowroot reflect Tanizaki's preoccupation with man's sexual and psychological nature. Both novellas stem, in the fashion of Stendhal, from a purported historical investigation. The Secret History of the Lord of Musashi is the bizarre, outrageous, and maliciously comic tale of a sixteenth-century warrior lord's fixations; Arrowroot describes one man's search for truth and legend in a small Japanese village. Written in lyrical prose, yet with a firm sense of humor and the absurd, these two powerful novellas illustrate why Tanizaki is esteemed by many as Japan's greatest modern writer."--Back cover
Anthology of sōkyoku and jiuta song texts by Genʼichi Tsuge( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and Japanese and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reed cutter and Captain Shigemoto's mother : two novellas by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great novelists of the twentieth century, Junichiro Tanizaki wrote about love--and sex--with a breathtaking suppleness of style and a vast depth of literary allusion. In these two novellas, brilliantly translated by Anthony H. Chambers and appearing in paperback for the first time, Tanizaki probes the translucent screen that separates idealized yearning from humiliating obsession in a society of impenetrable decorum. -- Back cover
