Section 001 Fiction of the Meiji Period, 1868-1912.

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

The seminar in modern Japanese literature for Fall 2001 will focus upon Meiji fiction. We will read examples of canonical fiction written toward the end of the Meiji period (1868-1912) by such writers as Natsume Soseki, Mori Ogai, Tayama Katai, and Shimazaki Toson. And we will trace the standard literary history that ties such writing to Tsubouchi Shoyo's call for a new national fiction. But we will also read earlier writing that is excluded from such a literary history, in particular Meiji gesaku of the "poisonous women" vein and popular melodramatic novels from the 1890s. Our aim will be to locate works, both canonical and non-canonical, in larger Meiji discourses and to determine how patterns of exclusion and inclusion reflect vigorous Meiji debates on national and cultural identity, modernization, sexuality, and gender. This seminar requires reading knowledge of Japanese, with some ability to understand classical grammar. Requirements include participating in discussions, making presentations on assigned texts, and a final seminar paper.
