    Kindle Kyōka Izumi Ô Japanese Gothic Tales ePUB â Japanese Gothic Epub / Ô japanese epub, gothic mobile, tales mobile, Japanese Gothic book, Japanese Gothic Tales eBookStrange very strange Jolting powerful images flit about only to be succeeded by others strange creating a fascinating spiral staircase like uality—even if one is never sure where you've ended up when you finally reach the top The best of this collection is definitely The Holy Man of Mount Koya the weirdest One Day in Spring by far In a couple of essays the translator emphasizes the difficulty that many readers will have rendering Kyoka Izumi's stories intelligible I must be a pretty typical reader Though love women and sacrifice are elements which are present in all of the stories in this collection those elements at least are not too hard to identify there is no clear lesson to be learned Perhaps it is a fault of mine but I usually take this for obscurantism and it tends to bother me Yet Izumi is so intriguing spending time with his powerful and odd metaphors was delightful Kyoka Izumi's work is like a person who wields a deep silence an

    Kindle Kyōka Izumi Ô Japanese Gothic Tales ePUB â Japanese Gothic Epub / Ô japanese epub, gothic mobile, tales mobile, Japanese Gothic book, Japanese Gothic Tales eBookThis is a solid if short collection of well gothic stories often obtuse and nonlinear beautiful but not always satisfying They're good but the writing is knotty and challenging Certainly not for everyone but genre scholars should not miss outThey might however want to skip the insulting condescending introduction The translator's attitude toward genre fiction and writers is uncharitable esp regarding Poe whose work is uite similar to Kyoka's

    Kindle Kyōka Izumi Ô Japanese Gothic Tales ePUB â Japanese Gothic Epub / Ô japanese epub, gothic mobile, tales mobile, Japanese Gothic book, Japanese Gothic Tales eBookThere is truly something rather uniue about Izumi Kyoka's literary style and Gothic is not necessarily the best way to describe it although I can understand why it was chosen for the title of this anthology The problem with Gothic as a word is that it is a very European centric word referring to a particular period andor aesthetic from Western culture Where the aesthetic intersects with Kyoka's work is in their morbid and antiuarian imagery As with Western Gothic Literature the inspiration comes from folktales and legends and both have a pessimistic view of love intertwined with death Both deal with emotionally overwrought melodrama But the main difference is the cultural source of the folktales and legends With Buddhism and Japanese folktales becoming the main source for Kyoka's stories they might seem a li
