BD. Edmund Blunden
4. To Ishii Hakuson, 24 July, 1925. Foreword to Twelve
Poems by Haxon Ishii. Tokyo: Bunka Insatsusha, 1925.
Blunden was a tireless champion of young Japanese who wrote
in English (see also, for example, 6,
and 123). He writes here of the pleasure
and admiration he has felt in reading Ishii’s verse.
