Henshall (Japanese studies, Canterbury U.) presents a study of Japanese writer Tayama Katai, focusing on Katai's interest in nature and Japanese nationalism. The study is chronological and starts with his early life and formative years as a writer. The middle chapters examine his interest in Western naturalism. Katai was influenced more by German than French naturalists. Later chapters consider the literary context of early 20th-century Japan, the relationship between sex and callous nature as Katai experienced it, and several stories he wrote about a geisha, Iida Yone.
