Righteous Cause or Tragic Folly
Changing Views of War in Modern Japanese Poetry
by Steve Rabson

“Covering almost a century of Japanese poetry in a thoughtful, sensitive manner, this book is a valuable contribution to the field not only of modern Japanese literature, but of comparative literature between Japan and the West.”
Yoshiko Yokochi Samuel in The Journal of Asian Studies
 

“[Rabson’s] careful examination of the poetry and gunka (military ballads) published in the Japanese popular press . . . [and analysis of specific authors] makes a significant contribution.”
Joan Ericson in Monumenta Nipponica
