This complete reprint makes the rare original edition available to scholars, librarians, and laymen. It is a fascinating guide to Japanese literature. The periods reviewed by Professor Aston range from the ancient days, when Japan's history was just dawning, to the Meiji Restoration of 1868, when all aspects of Japanese life were being transformed. No aspect of Japanese culture escapedmodification or change after Meiji, but Aston is concerned mainly with the profound literary heritage of Japan before Westernization
Nihongi; chronicles of Japan from the earliest times to A.D. 697 by W. G Aston( Book )

Nihongi: Chronicles of Japan from the Earliest Times to A.D. 697, often. called the Nihonshoki, is one of Japan's great classics of literature. It provides a vivid picture of a nation in formation. In Nihongi we see the growth of national awareness following the assimilation of Buddhism and the general Chinese and Indian influence on Japanese culture. For a thousand years emperors, scholars, courtiers, and imperial historians have found in the Nihongi knowledge and guidance. The translator, William George Aston, C.M.G., pioneered the translation of Japanese into English
