Donald Keene's definitive history of modern Japanese literature is an achievement beyond the range and scope of any other western writer. The fourth book of his series offers comprehensive insight into Japanese poetry, drama, and criticism - including studies of important trends and developments such as the traditional poetic forms of tanka and haiku, poetry in the Meiji and Taisho dynastic periods, modern drama and the literature of kabuki, and modern criticism from Meiji through the Showa periods.

The publication of Dawn to the West... will do even more to establish modern Japanese literature as one of the major literatures of the world. New York Times Book Review
