About the Author

Natsume Soseki's early education included the study of Chinese classics and architecture, but as an English literature major he found his life's work, as well as the friendship of haiku poet Masaoka Shiki, an important personal and literary influence. Soseki's prose, for example, is often mostrar mais interspersed with his own haiku. In 1900 the Japanese government sent Soseki, who was a professor of English literature, to London, but, poorly funded and isolated, he found his years abroad painful and began to exhibit neurotic behavior. On his return, he shocked society by giving up his teaching position at Tokyo University to write fiction for the Asahi newspaper, a profession associated with the world of "entertainers." Despite poor health in the last years of his life, Soseki continued to write an average of one novel a year. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

The Three-Cornered World was written in 1906, but it's "action" if one can use that term with regard to so static a work is set two years earlier, at the time of the Russo-Japanese war.

The Three-Cornered World, is among other things, about meditation versus action, detachment versus duty, about Western versus Eastern value systems, about the perceived perils of modernism. In my opinion, it's one of the greatest novels of the 20th century.… (mais)

Certainly feels like the "Catcher in the Rye" of Japan. Luckily this was markedly better than Salinger's. Hopefully will someday meet a fan that can explain why this book is so famous (other than its brevity).
