Lafcadio Hearn


(Patricio Lafcadio Tessima Carlos Hearn)
Ireland (1850 - 1904)

Lafcadio Hearn was a writer particularly gifted at translating a foreign aesthetic for a Western audience. Hearn's writing is always lyrical and passionate, and in this collection of essays and tales-not all of which are on subjects Japanese, unlike his most popular works-we see also his most refined workmanship and most intellectual discourse. Whether an extrapolation on Goblin Poetry, a discussion of the existential question, a passionate retelling of a mythic tale, or an illustration of Japan's social philosophy, the pieces herein form a portrait of a man who is taking us somewhere fantastic, but making us feel at home all the way.
