Abstract:

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.
