BF. William Empson

3. ‘Bungaku o oshierukoto’ (Teaching literature). Bungei, February 1934, pp. 87-93.

Empson published several articles in Tokyo journals during his residence in the city, including early drafts of much of Some Versions of Pastoral (5), but the work usually is not directly related to Japanese subjects. This piece is an exception in that it addresses the teaching of literature specifically to Japanese students in Japan. Empson himself did not have Japanese, but no translator of the work is noted. For brief treatment of similar concerns in English see 11.
