Gleanings in Buddha-Fields
Few things for common use are made in Japan with a view to durability. The straw sandals worn out and replaced at each stage of a journey; the robe consisting of a few simple widths loosely stitched together for wearing, and unstitched again for washing; the fresh chopsticks served to each new guest at a hotel In , just as Japan was opening to the West and interest in Japanese culture in the outside world was flowering, Western expatriate Lafcadio Hearn published this charming and insightful valentine to his adopted country.
In sweetly lyrical prose, Hearn extols the "strange morality" of Japanese crime and punishment, the startling beauty of Japanese music, the graceful demureness of Japanese women, and much more. Japanophiles and travelers to the East will delight in this extraordinary foreign journal by a traveler so in love with the land that he stayed for the rest of his life.
It is a play of which the dialogue is uttered by invisible personages, the actors and the scenery being only luminous shadows. Wherefore it is peculiarly well suited to goblinries and weirdnessess of all kinds; and plays in which ghosts figure are the favourite subject. A wonderful journal of immersion on a foreign land, this will bewitch Japanophiles and travelers to the East. Exotics and retrospective and in ghostly Japan. Einblicke in das Innenleben JapansKokoro.

Gleanings in Buddha-Fields: Studies of Hand and Soul in the Far East
Lafcadio Hearn Gleanings in Buddha-Fields This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. A menagerie of observation, philosophy, musing, and storytelling, Shadowings is quirky and charming, not unlike its author, transplanted Westerner Lafcadio Hearn. In this work, Hearn takes us from an ancient Japanese legend of love and spirits to an intimate contemplation on fear to a philosophical study of feminine Japanese names.
Applying both his keen aesthetic eye and his uncanny ability to translate feelings as well as words, Hearn awakens the intellect and spirit, and offering us a prime view not only into his beloved adopted country, but into humanity itself. Following his time there, he wrote 'Two Years in the French West Indies', in , chronicling his observations and experiences in the region. He is probably best known for his writings on Japan, but this is a fascinating work that equally represents his knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, other cultures.
We are republishing this work with a brand new introductory biography on the author with an aim to place the book in the context of his other writings. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. I wanted to examine the use of oral history in documenting and recording of people lives in recent times in the East End of London.
I have chosen to look at how a museum in East London uses oral history to represent individuals and local communities in the East End of London.
