Modern Fable by Junzaburo Nishiwaki

Book Description

Born in 1894, Nishiwaki Junzaburo began by writing poems in English and French, his first two books being published in the UK. Throughout his long life, his work was described as a 'translatory', a 'violation of the mother tongue'. This new collection of poetry by the great Japanese poet contains work from six of Nishiwaki's volumes: Ambarvalia, No Traveller Returns, The Modern Fable, The Third Myth, Slumber of a Gem and Book of Rites - work published from 1933 to 1963 - revealing his work to English language readers. Nishiwaki died in 1982.
