2014 CATALOG Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to download the 2014 Cornell East Asia Series catalog.


This collection makes available representative examples of annotated Japanese short stories and novellas from Meiji to the present. The volumes provide rubi for nearly all kanji at first use. With its extensive annotations, the collection serves as a resource for students of modern Japanese literature and may also be used as an intermediate-to-advanced-language text. The volumes are printed Japanese-style, with pages ordered from right to left.
A Literature-in-Translation Series, New Japanese Horizons 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, the Series seeks to provide quality translations of literary work from the classical period to the contemporary that are both of interest to a general audience and informative in an academic context.
The Cornell East Asia Series (CEAS) is pleased to present a collection of online books, in searchable, downloadable format. These titles were originally published in the Cornell East Asia Series, many back when we were called the China-Japan Program and the series title was the East Asia Papers. Though of lasting literary and historical value, many of these titles have been long out of print and unavailable. We are very happy to make these works available again as a free online resource. The titles were selected by the CEAS faculty editorial board and were digitized with the permission of the individual authors.
