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

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

4 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 62 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

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

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 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)"--
