Studies in Modern Japanese Literature
Essays and Translations in Honor of Edwin McClellan
edited by Dennis Washburn & Alan Tansman

“The essays are elegantly argued and gracefully written, the translations and their headnotes are superbly executed, and the selections have been skillfully shaped and arranged by the volume’s editors. . . . [It is] an excellent tribute to their teacher and a significant addition to Japanese literary and cultural studies.”
Maryellen Toman Mori in The Journal of Asian Studies
 

“What one gets from reading the collection is a sense of serendipitous richness. The wealth of intelligence and finely honed literary sense is overwhelming. These essays and translations, all of them interesting and all of them exceptionally well done, will furnish the general reader and the specialist alike with valuable critical perspectives on modern Japanese literature for some time to come.”
