47. [Blunden]. Review of Masterpieces of Japanese Poetry Ancient and Modern, translated by Asatarô Miyamori (see D27). TLS, 29 August 1936, p. 698.
Blunden finds Miyamori’s work among ‘most
elaborate and attractive collections of the kind ever offered to the Western
reader’. Includes passing reference to earlier translations by Aston
(see D13), Chamberlain (D5),
Dickins (D3), Porter (D20),
and Waley (D26). See also 39.
