BD. Edmund Blunden

32. ‘Lafcadio Hearn’. Review of Lectures on Shakespeare, by Hearn, edited by Iwao Inagaki, and Essays on American Literature, by Hearn, edited by Sanki Ichikawa. Bookman (London) 77 (February 1930): 281-82.


Blunden’s attitudes about Hearn (D9) were mixed, but here he is unambiguous. The Japanese are ‘grateful’ for his work, Blunden writes, because ‘he produced more and better books on Japan than most sojourners have done’. Compare BD8, 20, 27, 36, 42a, 71c, 78, 89, 123, 133, 149, 152, and 156.
