This book shows why Keats and Romanticism appeal to the Japanese mind, and how English Romantic poetry has found its way into Japanese literature. The first part analyses the reception of Romanticism in Japan before and after World War II and then focuses on the Japanese reception of Keats and the translation of Keats’ poetry. The second part of the book deals with the medical aspect in Keats’ poetry, his treatment of the supernatural, and his distinctive use of words.
