This is a superb book, sure to remain the definitive study of Izumi Kyoka's drama for decades.

This is a superb book, sure to remain the definitive study of Izumi Kyoka's drama for decades. And a compelling one at that. Each day I eagerly looked forwards to picking up where I left off, which is rare even for academic studies that I like. Izumi Kyoka is perhaps one of modern Japan's most fascinating writers and yet one of the most understudied for any number of plausible but ultimately unjustifiable reasons, so such a fine work as "Spirits of Another Sort" is doubly precious, certainly.

Izumi Kyoka (1873-1939) had a predilection for the richly figurative and supernatural that seemed not only irrelevant to the concerns of modern life but an affront to the social and psychological realism that became the common currency of both literature and theater in modern Japan. Believing in beauty and truth and in language's mystical evocation of experience, Kyoka sought for a way to reinvest the world with a kind of magic that he felt was being lost. Although better known as a novelist, Kyoka also wrote a large number of plays, and his work has continued to be adapted by others for the stage and screen.Spirits of Another Sort, the first work in any language to focus on Izumi Kyoka's career as a playwright, argues that the dramas reveal, in an often unmitigated fashion, the writer's romanticism, his belief in the occult, his aversion to contemporary society, and his idiosyncratic but powerful ethical and aesthetic ideals. In an attempt to create a dramaturgy of the sacred from the dregs of the past, Kyoka's plays resemble the work of Maeterlinck or even Artaud.Spirits of Another Sort is a literary-critical study that traces the development of Kyoka's work from the melodramatic formulas of his early ideological fiction to the increasingly grotesque and fantastic permutations of the original pattern in his plays of the Taisho era. It is important reading for those whose interests lie in Japanese literature, theater, and film and in cross-cultural theater and film.
