Description

English-medium elective_This course provides the opportunity to read twentieth-century Japanese literary works in the original Japanese. In addition to honing our ability to read modern Japanese fictional and (to a lesser extent) poetic texts, we will be translating them into English and discussing and analyzing them critically in class. Our focus will be on modernist writings from the 1920s to the 1960s and cover a broader range of representative Japanese authors and their works.
