BE. Witter Bynner

26. Kraft, James. Introduction to Prose Pieces (19), 1979.


Kraft notes that Bynner believed the people of the United States ‘had little in common with the Japanese character and much with the Chinese’, who ‘living in a vast, sprawling country’ were ‘easier, warmer, more humorous, and more tolerant than the Japanese, more like Americans’, a point Bynner himself makes in some detail in ‘Do We Know the Chinese’ (14).
