A. Critical and Comparative Studies

41. Miner, Earl. ‘Japan’s Contribution to Western Literature and the Arts’. UNESCO Courier, September-October 1968, pp. 28, 30, 34, 43, 45-46, 48.

Summarises major points from Miner’s earlier study (A25), and anticipates writers such as Flanagan (A65, 67, and 68) in suggesting that ‘Western writers and artists have turned to Japan for what they needed, not necessarily for what is there’. The essay appears slightly revised as ‘From “Japonisme” to “Zen”’, in Asian Student (San Francisco), March 1969, pp. 5-6.
