Cover of book Exotics And Retrospectives
Categories: Nonfiction

An enjoyable collection of articles by Patrick Lafcadio Hearn, also known as Koizumi Yakumo European-born American-Japanese author, orientalist and philosopher, who wrote novels and articles with exot


ic themes in highly precise and polished prose. His 1898 “Exotics and Retrospectives” inquires into Japanese culture, way of life, traditions, religion, nature and folklore. Hearn offers us to follow him in his reflections of why we remember the beautiful more than the ugly, why the color make us feel so strongly, his reflections on an impressive sunset, fear of the supernatural and a lot of other amusing and sometimes mysterious subjects.
