The "hero" of this book is a prof named Kenzo (based on the author himself) who spends most of his energy reading English books and preparing lectures. He is a quiet taciturn man who had rather not speak to his wife and two daughters. He is not wealthy by any means, but among his relatives he is the most financially secure. It is this bit of financialm security that causes the problems in Kenzo's life. His older brother, older sister, and former adoptive father look upon him as a benefactor, and Kenzo resents this view, but because of society's strictures he does all that he can to support his destitute family members. --Daitokuji31 at

Kokoro by Franz Kafka( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
Natsume Soseki's importance to Japanese literature can be compared to that of Dickens to Britain or Henry James to America. Like these writers, his work now holds a hugely popular and important place in the literary imagination of his country. Unlike them, his work is only recently coming to the attention of readers from overseas. "Kokoro" joins the recent publications of "The Gate", "The Tower of London" and "the Three Cornered World" from Peter Owen as part of an international programme to bring one of Japan's best known authors to a new English speaking audience. As Damian Flanagan says in his new critical introduction "Kokoro" is the Soseki novel that has been given most attention by critics and the public in Japan. On one level, a meditation on the changing face of Japanese culture and its attitudes to honour, friendship, love, death, it is also a sly subversion of all of these things. The novel centres around the friendship between the narrator and the man he calls Sensei, who is haunted by mysterious events in his past. As the friendship grows and the narrator gets to know more about the man he so admires he is increasingly intrigued by this hidden history. The Sensei, however, refuses to reveal anything until the third part of the book when the narrator is called away to look after his sick father and the truth is revealed in tragic circumstances, etching itself onto the narrator - and the reader's - "Kokoro" : Heart
