BD. Edmund Blunden

56. [Blunden]. ‘Phoenix and Rising Sun’. Review of New Paths for Japan, by Harold Wakefield. TLS, 2 October 1948, p. 550.

Blunden sympathises with the ‘highly cultivated and generous personalities’ of Japanese who were ‘driven into solitude’ by the war, and who have a renewed hope, but feel an acute sense of being out of touch with new movements in art, literature, and music. The review would have been submitted to TLS from Tokyo during Blunden’s second stay in Japan.
