Description

Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan, Vol 1

by Lafcadio Hearn

A Japanese magic-lantern show is essentially dramatic. It is a play of which the dialogue is uttered by invisible personages, the actors and the scenery being only luminous shadows. Wherefore it is peculiarly well suited to goblinries and weirdnessess of all kinds; and plays in which ghosts figure are the favourite subject. -from "Of Ghosts and Goblins"

In 1889, Westerner Lafcadio Hearn arrived in Japan on a journalistic assignment, and he fell so in love with the nation and its people that he never left. In 1894, just as Japan was truly opening to the West and global interest in Japanese culture was burgeoning, Hearn published this delightful series of essays glorifying what he called the "rare charm of Japanese life."

Beautifully written and a joy to read, Hearn's love letters to the land of the rising sun enchant with their sweetly lyrical descriptions of winter street fairs, puppet theaters, religious statuaries, even the Japanese smile and its particular allure.

A wonderful journal of immersion on a foreign land, this will bewitch Japanophiles and travelers to the East.

Hearn moved to Dublin, Ireland, at the age of two. Artisticand rather bohemian tastes were in his blood. His father's brotherRichard was at one time a well-known member of the Barbizon set ofartists, though he made no mark as a painter due to his lack ofenergy. Young Hearn had a rather casual education, but in 1865 wasat Ushaw Roman Catholic College, Durham. He was injured in aplayground accident in his teens, causing loss of vision in hisleft eye. Emigration The religious faith in which he was brought upwas, however, soon lost, and at 19 he was sent to live in theUnited States of America, where he settled in Cincinnati, Ohio. Fora time, he lived in utter poverty, which may have contributed...
