Books and HabitseBook - 2011
This collection of essays, individually published between 1915 and 1917, originated as lectures Hearn delivered to Japanese students at the University of Tokyo. They constitute one of the first attempts by a Western critic to interpret Western culture to the East. Chapters are dedicated to Western attitudes to women, poetry, the Bible, and an overview of Western literary influences.
