Abstract: With choice selections from the core anthologies The Columbia Anthology of Modern Japanese Literature: From Restoration to Occupation, 1868-1945, and The Columbia Anthology of Modern Japanese Literature: From 1945 to the Present, this abridgement offers a concise yet remarkably rich introduction to the fiction, poetry, drama, and essays that reflect Japan's modern encounter with the West. Spanning a period of exceptional invention and transition, the volume forms a critical companion not only for courses in Japan's literary and intellectual development, but also for scholarship on its history.
