New Japanese Horizons | Modern Japanese Poetry

A Literature-in-Translation Series

This series aims to expand current knowledge of Japan's rich literary tradition in the English-speaking world by giving visibility to a wide range of historical experience and forms of expression. With this goal in mind, New Japanese Horizons seeks to provide quality translations of literary works from the classical period to contemporary that are both of interest to a general audience and informative in an academic context. NJH welcomes submissions of translations of literature. All submissions should be addressed to NJH Series Editor at mnw5m@virginia.edu
