Description
This study of orientalist, translator, and poet Arthur Waley (18891966) and his Japanese translations provides a provocative examination of Waley's contribution to 20th-century English literature and culture. Waley, argues John de Gruchy, was the single most important force in creating what the English-speaking public understood to be "Japanese literature," and his popular and critically acclaimed translations of Japanese poetry, noh plays, and the 11th-century court romance The Tale of Genji had an immeasurable influence on Western perceptions of Asia and on the development of Asian studies in the West.
