Mori Ogai (1862-1922)

Chinese literaturePosted by Vidar Sat, December 30, 2006 15:02:09

I have just read The historical fiction of Mori Ogai (University of Hawai'i, 1991).
It contains a retelling of the preface to Han-shans poems that were quite good.

Of interest is also the story on T'ang dynasty poetess Yü Hsüan-chi.

Most of the stories in this book takes their motives from japanese history though.
