Lafcadio Hearn Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things


Upon his arrival in Japan in 1890, Lafcadio Hearn found himself enamored with the culture, people, and stories of the country, and would make Japan his home until his death in 1904. His collections of stories published during this time became the most popular of Hearn's writings, and earned him veneration worldwide as not only a great translator of Japanese mythology, but as a sensational teller of strange and wonderfully macabre tales. «Kwaidan» is most commonly translated as weird or horror tales, but to assign one word to the people, places, ghosts and gods in this work, one can only use the word strange. This collection of supernatural tales includes «The Story of Mimi-Nashi-H??chi,» «Ubazakura,» and «Rokuro-Kubi,» and other stories translated from old Japanese texts. Hearn was made a professor of English literature in the Imperial University of Tokyo in 1895, and is today revered by the Japanese for providing significant insights into their own national character.

Lafcadio Hearn Kwaidan


A blind musician with amazing talent is called upon to perform for the dead. Faceless creatures haunt an unwary traveler. A beautiful woman &#8212; the personification of winter at its cruelest &#8212; ruthlessly kills unsuspecting mortals. These and seventeen other chilling supernatural tales &#8212; based on legends, myths, and beliefs of ancient Japan &#8212; represent the very best of Lafcadio Hearn's literary style. They are also a culmination of his lifelong interest in the endlessly fascinating customs and tales of the country where he spent the last fourteen years of his life, translating into English the atmospheric stories he so avidly collected.<BR>Teeming with undead samurais, man-eating goblins, and other terrifying demons, these twenty classic ghost stories inspired the Oscar&#174;-nominated 1964 film of the same name.<BR>
