B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Yasunari Kawabata (1899-1972) First Japanese novelist, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature (1968). Many of Kawabata's book explore melancholically the place of sex in culture and people's lives. His works combined old Japan's beauty with modernist trends, realism with surrealistic visions. Over the course of his life, Kawabata wrote more than a hundred 'palm-of-the-hand' stories - as the author called them. They were usually two or three pages long, and expressed according to Kawabata the essence of his art. In one of the stories, 'Up in the Tree,' Michiko and Keisuke, both fourth graders, share a secret. Keisuke tells her that his parents quarrel, and his father has another woman. He once climbed a tree in the garden so that his mother couldn't take him and go back to her parents' house. Since then he has been up in the tree a lot. "The "secret" of their being up in the tree had continued for almost two years now. Where the thick trunk branched out near the top, the two could sit comfortably. Michiko, straddling one branch, leaned back against another. There were days when little birds came and days when the wind sang through the pine needles. Although they weren't that high off the ground, these two little lovers felt as if they were in a completely different world, far away from the earth."
(from 'Up in the Tree') Yasunari Kawabata was born in Osaka into a prosperous and cultured family. He learned to know loneliness and rootlessness early - he was orphaned at age of three, his grandmother died when he was seven, and his only sister when he was nine. The family deaths deprived Kawabata of normal childhood and some critics has seen that these early traumas formed the background for the sense of loss and regret which run through his writing. In 1920 he started his literature studies at Tokyo Imperial University, and graduated in 1924. With a group of young writers, Kawabata founded the journal

2. Yasunari Kawabata Annotated Bibliography
(1984) PL 726.55 .K39 1984. kawabata yasunari, Beauty and Sadness, trans.
This bibliography, which began as a library science class project in the summer of 1996, is inspired by my interest and enjoyment in the literary works of Kawabata. Unfortunately, beyond a few conversational words and the "Speed Racer" theme song, I don't know any Japanese, which has limited the bibliography to only those works written in English. This bibliography should be comprehensive for translations of Kawabata's work and for scholarly literature about his work. On a more limited scale, I have included some general reference articles, such as the entry in Kondasha's Encyclopedia of Japan, and some of the contemporary material which reviewed his writing. Enjoy the bibliography. As far as recommendations go, his most famous work is probably Snow Country , but my favorites are Beauty and Sadness and The Sound of the Mountain . Also, many of his Palm of the Hand stories are remarkable. Translated (Primary) Sources Secondary Sources A - G Secondary Sources H - O Secondary Sources P - Z I hope this work proves useful to anyone looking for scholarly sources on Kawabata.

    Japan is the birthplace of what is most likely the world's first novel; The Tale of Genji Genji Monogatari ) and continues to have a strong literary tradition to this day. In this paper I will compare the works of two of Japan's most famous authors, Yoshimoto Banana and Kawabata Yasunari. The texts I will make reference to are Kawabata's Sound of the Mountain Yama No Oto ) and Yoshimoto's Kitchen Kittchin ) and N.P. I will contend that the works of both writers, although they come from significantly different backgrounds, share many of the same essential qualities. I will also state that Yoshimoto's work is not as wholly international and freed from its Japanese background as some claim, nor is Kawabata's novel completely Japanese and lacking in accessibility to the non-Japanese reader. I would like to argue that both are accessible to broad audiences, yet both remain firmly grounded in the Japanese aesthetic and literary tradition. I intend to compare the novels' characters, themes, moral values and aesthetics.(Before I begin my analysis of the two author's works, I would like to offer a short biographical sketch of each of them).

    Kawabata Yasunari
    Kawabata Yasunari, 1968 UPI/Corbis-Bettmann (b. June 11, 1899, O saka, Japand. April 16, 1972, Zushi), Japanese novelist who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1968. His melancholic lyricism echoes an ancient Japanese literary tradition in the modern idiom. The sense of loneliness and preoccupation with death that permeates much of Kawabata's mature writing possibly derives from the loneliness of his childhood (he was orphaned early and lost all near relatives while still in his youth). He graduated from Tokyo Imperial University in 1924 and made his entrance into the literary world with the semiautobiographical Izu no odoriko The Izu Dancer ). It appeared in the journal Bungei jidai ("The Artistic Age"), which he founded with the writer Yokomitsu Riichi; this journal became the organ of the Neosensualist group with which Kawabata was early associated. This school is said to have derived much of its aesthetic from such post-World War I French literary currents as Dadaism and Expressionism. Their influence on Kawabata's novels may be seen in the abrupt transitions between separate brief, lyrical episodes; in imagery that is frequently startling in its mixture of incongruous impressions; and in his juxtaposition of the beautiful and the ugly. These same qualities, however, are present in Japanese prose of the 17th century and in the renga (linked verse) of the 15th century. It is to the latter that Kawabata's fiction seemed to draw nearer in later years.

    Kawabata Yasunari
    Kawabata Yasunari, the novelist, was born in Osaka in 1899. He lost one family member after another in his infancy and became an orphan by the age of 15.
    While continuing dormitory life, he advanced to the First Higher School and Tokyo Imperial University. With his classmates he launched the 6th series of Shinshicho (New Currents of Thought) in 1921. The story gShokonsai Ikkei,h contributed to the second number, was recognized by Kikuchi Kan and marked his entry into the literary world.
    He brought out the magazine gBungei Jidaih (Literary Age) in 1924 with Yokomitsu Riichi, Kataoka Teppei and Kon Toko and became a representative novelist of the Shinkankaku (New sensibilities) school. By the early stages of the Showa period, he had become a central existence of the Shinko Geijutsuha (New Art school). He released a succession of masterpieces, among them, gIzu no Odorikoh (tr The Izu Dancer) gYukigunih (tr Snow Country), gSenba Zuruh (tr Thousand Cranes), gYama no Otoh (tr The Sound of the Mountain), gMizu Umih (Lake) and gKotoh (Ancient Capital).
    In 1968 he became the first Japanese to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. In addition to his creative activity, as the chairman of the Japan P.E.N. club, he organized the Tokyo meeting of the International P.E.N. club in 1957 and was nominated to the post of vice president of the world forum. His interests spread far and wide, and he was invited to join fellow Nobel laureate Yukawa Hideki on the Committee of Seven to Appeal for World Peace. He died in 1972 at the age of 72.

    In addition to his literary prowess, Kawabata Yasunari (1899-1972), Japan's first Nobel Laureate for Literature, was renowned as a discerning connoisseur who assembled a superb art collection. This exhibition marks the 30th anniversary of Kawabata's death as it focuses on Kawabata as art collector through its selection of works lent by the inheritor of his collection, Kawabata Foundation. Kawabata began actively collecting art in the post-World War II era, pouring his earnings from writing into this pursuit. Two works which would later be designated Japanese National Treasures, The Ten Conveniences and Ten Enjoyments of Rural Living Landscape with Frozen Clouds Filtering Powdery Snow , were acquired by Kawabata during the immediate post-war period. Kawabata wrote that he found new power in old things and that beauty sustained him during those chaotic post-war years. And indeed, some of these psychological supports for the acutely sensitive author were small, seemingly unimportant art objects that he kept on his desk, such as Rodin's
