69. Kodama, Sanehide. America no japonisme (American Japonisme). Tokyo: Chûôkôronshakan, 1995.
Kodama’s knowledgeable study of manifestations
of Japonisme in American fashion, art, and society traces the milieu in
which American writers have come to know of Japan, and includes a chapter
about the effects of knowledge of Japan in American literature. ‘America
bungaku no naka no Nippon’ (Japan in American literature) addresses
the incorporation of Japanese subjects in the writing of Crapsey (see
CA4), Longfellow (see CA1),
Lowell, Pound, and others.
