Kokoro Hints Echos Japanese Life


Lafcadio Hearn
Softcover, 232 pages, B&W, 8" x 5"

In the late 17th century, Lafcadio Hearn was the unparalleled Western expert on Japan. His numerous books about the country were read with a fascination that speaks to his powers of observation and the vividness of his descriptions. Even though much about Japan has changed greatly from Hearn’s time, his writing still captures the essence of the country – an essence that has actually changed less than outward appearances might suggest.

The 15 of Hearn’s essays collected in Kokoro examine the inner spiritual life of Japan. Sometimes touching and always compelling, the writings here tell of the people and social codes that make Japan unique. "Kimiko" paints the portrait of a beautiful geisha; "By Force of Karma" tells the story of a Buddhist monk; and in "A Conservative," we come to know the thoughts and actions of a Samurai.

Dimensions: 4.5" tall.
