"'정치의 시대'를 살아야 했던 '순수의 젊은이들' 그들이 시대의 변방에 묻어둔 엄청난 이야기! '85학번'이 빛나던 젊음이던 시절이 있었다. 그들 역시 여느 시대의 젊은이들처럼 초라한 학점과 취업에 대한 걱정을 짐짓 잊어가며, 사랑을, 이상을, 그리고 많은 이들과 더불어 행복한 미래를 꿈꾸었다. 순수와 열정으로 시대를 헤쳐 나가고자 했다. 그러나 그 시대는 그들에게 강고한 '벽'이었다. 어느 시대, 어느 젊은이들치고 자신들을 가로막는 '벽'으로부터 자유로울 수 있을까. 그러나 그들이 마주한 '벽'은 남다른 데가 있었다. 정치와 역사와 함성과 최루탄과 깨어진 보도블록과 올림픽이 뒤섞인, 그야말로 기묘한 시절이었다. 1984년에서 1988년으로 이어지는 격동의 시기, 소설의 화자(話者) 이윤과 그의 동료들은 시대의 변방에 서 있었다. 100만 시민이 종로와 명동을 함성으로 메울 때, 박종철과 이한열이 죽고, 대통령 직선제가 받아들여지고, 88올림픽의 열기가 수많은 이들의 고통을 잠재우고 있을 때, 그들은 '사회'를 떠나 입영을 했고, 전방을 지켰다. 그들에게 1980년대는 무엇이었을까. '87년 체제'와 '6월 항쟁'과 '88올림픽'과 '이데올로기의 종언'을 함께 품은 시대는, 그 시대를 살던 젊은이들에게 어떤 운명을 강요했을까. 세월이 흘렀다고 80년대의 시공간은 우리들에게 추억일까. 2018년을 사는 지금의 젊은이들이 감당해야 하는 실업과 불평등과 좌절과 무기력의 벽은 또 하나의 '80년대'인 것이 아닐까. 소설 『85학번 영수를 아시나요?』는 순수하기에 절망을 감당해야 하는 모든 시대, 모든 젊은이들에게 건네는 통절한 헌사다." -- Provided by publisher.

African, Lusophone and Afro-Hispanic Cultural Dialogue is a collection of essays of broad historical and geographic scope that advances analytical perspectives regarding a highly transcultural and changing African continent enmeshed in the vestiges of slavery and colonialism and the complex dynamics of post-colonialism. Mostly grounded in literary studies, the essays discuss the interconnections between Africa and its Lusophone and Afro-Hispanic diaspora. Particular focus is given to how they relate to the politics of identity and assimilation, migration and displacement, the concept of "nation", Eurocentrism and racial essentialisms, as well as Black aesthetics.

Winner of the prestigious Akutagawa Prize, three dream-like tales of memory and war Visiting a friend in the French countryside, a man finds himself cast into the quandaries of historical whim, religious identity, and seeing without sight; a walk along the seashore, upon the anniversary of a death, becomes a reverie on building sandcastles; and an innocent break-in at the ruins of an archbishop's residence takes a turn towards disaster. In three stories that prove the unavoidable connections of our past, Toshiyuki Horie creates a haunting world of dreams and memories where everyone ends up where they began - whether they want to or not.

This study makes a linguistic case for the twentieth century revolution in Chinese language and literature. It offers a history of reform and change in the Chinese language throughout the country's history, and focuses on the concept of `baihua', a language reform movement championed by Hu Shi and other scholars which laid the foundation for the May fourth New Literature Movement, the larger New Culture Movement and which now defines modern Chinese. Examining the differences between classical and modern Chinese language systems alongside an investigation into the relevance and impact of translation in this language revolution - notably addressing the pivotal role of May Fourth leader Lu Xun - this book provides a rare insight into the evolution of the Chinese language and those who championed its development.

As the essence of Chinese traditional culture, classical Chinese poetry in Singapore played a very important role in the social and cultural development of Singapore's Chinese community. Numerous poems depicted the unique scenery of tropical rainforest and the customs with a Nanyang flavor, recorded the various historical events from the colonial era, the World War II to the independent nation, and reflected the poets' multiple feelings. This book sketches out the brief history of classical Chinese poetry in Singapore over a hundred years, and focuses on the complex identity of poets from different generations, the function of literary societies in the construction of cultural space and the influence of modern media on the development of classical Chinese poetry based on the text interpretation. In addition, the author attempts to define different types of poetry writing using diaspora literature and Sinophone literature. The discussion of these topics will not only expand the research horizon of Chinese literature, but also provide a meaningful reference to the studies of the worldwide Chinese overseas, especially in Southeast Asia.

The first book-length study to explore the links between Christianity and modern Japanese literature, this book analyses the process of conversion of nine canonical authors, unveiling the influence that Christianity had on their self-construction, their oeuvre and, ultimately, the trajectory of modern Japanese literature. Building significantly on previous research, which has treated the intersections of Christianity with the Japanese literary world in only a cursory fashion, this book emphasizes the need to make a clear distinction between the different roles played by Catholicism and Protestantism. In particular, it argues that most Meiji and Taisho intellectuals were exposed to an exclusively Protestant and mainly Calvinist derivation of Christianity and so it is against this worldview that the connections between the two ought to be assessed. Examining the work of authors such as Kitamura Tokoku, Akutagawa Ryunosuke and Nagayo Yoshiro, this book also contextualises the spread of Christianity in Japan and challenges the notion that Christian thought was in conflict with mainstream literary schools. As such, this book explains how the dualities experienced by many modern writers were in fact the manifestation of manifold developments which placed Christianity at the center, rather than at the periphery, of their process of self-construction. The Dilemma of Faith in Modern Japanese Literature will be of great interest to students and scholars of Japanese modern literature, as well as those interested in Religious Studies and Japanese Studies more generally.

A fresh take on the doppleg\u00e4nger and its place in Japanese film and literature-past and present Since its earliest known use in German Romanticism in the late 1700s, the word Doppelg\u00e4nger (double-walker) can be found throughout a vast array of literature, culture, and media. This motif of doubling can also be seen traversing historical and cultural boundaries. Double Visions, Double Fictions analyzes the myriad manifestations of the doppelg\u00e4nger in Japanese literary and cinematic texts at two historical junctures: the interwar period of the 1920s and 1930s and the present day. According to author Baryon Tensor Posadas, the doppelg\u00e4nger marks the intersection of the historical impact of psychoanalytic theory, the genre of detective fiction in Japan, early Japanese cinema, and the cultural production of Japanese colonialism. He examines the doppelg\u00e4nger\u2019s appearance in the works of Edogawa Rampo, Tanizaki Jun\u2019ichiro, and Akutagawa Ryunosuke, as well as the films of Tsukamoto Shin\u2019ya and Kurosawa Kiyoshi, not only as a recurrent motif but also as a critical practice of concepts. Following these explorations, Posadas asks: What were the social, political, and material conditions that mobilized the desire for the doppelg\u00e4nger? And how does the doppleg\u00e4nger capture social transformations taking place at these historical moments?Double Visions, Double Fictions ultimately reveals how the doppelg\u00e4nger motif provides a fascinating new backdrop for understanding the enmeshment of past and present.

Yi T'aejun was one of twentieth-century Korea's true masters of the short story--and a man who in 1946 stunned his contemporaries by moving to the Soviet-occupied northern zone of his country. In South Korea, where he is known today as "one who went north," Yi's work was banned until 1988. His momentous decision did not lead him to a safe haven, however: though initially welcomed into the literary establishment, North Korea sent him into internal exile in the 1950s, and little is known of his fate. Dust and Other Stories offers a selection of Yi's stories across time and place, showcasing a superb stylist caught up in the midst of his era's most urgent ideological and aesthetic divides. This collection unites his earlier modernist masterpieces from the colonial era with his little-known work penned during North Korea's founding years, offering a rare glimpse into the making--and crossing--of the border between south and north. During the turbulent final years of Japanese rule, Yi's elegant yet subdued stories championed both his native tongue and the belief in the capacity of art.
