Tales of moonlight and rain by Akinari Ueda( )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,414 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. The title Ugetsu monogatari (literally ""rain-moon tales"") alludes to the belief that mysterious beings appear on cloudy, rainy nights and in mornings with a lingering moon. In ""Shiramine, "" the ve

The secret window : ideal worlds in Tanizaki's fiction by Anthony H Chambers( Book )
8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 318 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 )
3 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
