Japan Studies Texts: The List
(Last Update: 7/16/2016)


The following is a non-comprehensive, ever-expanding list of Japanese (and some Chinese) works for which I have made PDFs (of original and English translation) and study guides for class use. The works are organized by period: ancient, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary. Students should select from the list fifteen works that they would like to read during the semester. If you wish to read a work that is not on the list, please send me the title and author name, and I will try to locate it and make PDFs/study guides.

*Note 1: My selections of works and their English translations are not an endorsement; availability and chance played a role in my selections.
*Note 2: The original Japanese title is given first, followed by the title of the English translation. I plan to add detailed bibliographical information at some point.
