My Individualism and the Philosophical Foundation of Literature

Boston: Tuttle Publishing, 2004. 9-23

with introduction by Dr. Inger Sigrun Brodey

“In these rare personal essays, Soseki defines the role of art in light of the isolation of the modern world. Each essay includes personal anecdotes that act as allegories about the fate of Japan.


In her introduction, Soseki expert Dr. Inger Sigrun Brodey sensitively explores the crises in Soseki’s own life that led to his powerful sense of dislocation and to his particular style of writing, and then masterfully unravels the complexities of the two essays.”
