Lafcadio Hearn

A singular figure in American letters, Lafcadio Hearn (1850–1904) had a life as complex as his heritage. Born in the Ionian Islands to a Greek mother and an Irish father, he was abandoned by his parents, raised in boarding schools, and then sent penniless to the United States, where he began a career as a newspaper journalist. After earning a measure of literary fame in his adopted country, he moved permanently to Japan, where he became a leading interpreter of Japanese ways for a Western audience.

Samenvatting

A reprint of the 1915 edition containing essays on Shakespeare, Poe, Longfellow, Shelley, Keats, English poetry, Baudelaire, the supernatural in fiction, poems about insects and other literary topics. These were lectures to his students while he held the chair of English literature in the University of Tokyo from 1896 to 1902. Selected and edited, with an introduction, by John Erskine, Associate Professor of English in Columbia University, New York. Lafcadio Hearn was one of the original American expatriates to move to Japan; after living in New Orleans for some years, writing stories, he moved on to Tokyo, where he married a Japanese woman and changed his name. Hearn is best known for his supernatural tales.
