Resisting the various forms of realism popular during the Meiji enlightenment Izumi Kyoka 1873 1939 was among the most popular writers who continued to work in the old fashioned genres of fantasy mystery and romance Gothic Tales makes available for the first time a collection of stories by this highly influential writer whose decadent romanticism led him to envision an idiosyncratic world a fictive purgatory precious and bizarre though always genuine despite its melodramatic formalityThe four stories presented here are among Kyoka's best known works They are drawn from four stages of the author's development from the conceptual novels of 1895 to the fragmented romanticism of his mature work In the way of introduction Inouye presents a clear analysis of Kyoka's problematic stature as a great gothic writer and emphasizes the importance of Kyoka's work to the present reevaluation of literary history in general and modern Japanese literature in particular The extensive notes that follow the translation serve as an intelligent guide for the reader supplying details about each of the stories and how they fit into the pattern of mythic development that allowed Kyoka to deal with his fears in a way that sustained his life and as Mishima Yukio put it pushed the Japanese language to its highest potential

    When looking at a piece of bread I believe Kyoka san would have thought of the time when he was offered a piece of bread in a faraway temple by a generous monk The monk only had that bread but had given it out of compassion of the weary traveller Beside the temple there lied a wheat field Looking at the bread in his hand he could smell the enticing smell of dry grass carried by the gentle windA young girl came from one of the hut nearby the field She had the most impeccable white skin She was wearing a white summer cotton yukata with bright red rose pattern Suddenly she turned her head and looked at the direction of the weary traveller His face blushed caught red handed staring at her Quickly he averted his eyes and shoved the bread to his mouthHe smiled faintly The girl was startled because of the rustling sound of the grass A snake was passing by He looked at his hand Somehow the piece of bread had turned to a sugar dusted donut topped with strawberry jamThis book was a super difficult read for me It is definitely not the kind of book you read while winding down after a hard days at work You read this book and then you wind down doing some monthly reports and excel graphsAs for me when I look at a piece of bread my stomach starts growling and in no time the bread was nowhere to be seen
