Michael Bourdaghs edits collection of writings by great Japanese novelist

Michael Bourdaghs, Associate Professor of modern Japanese literature, has served as editor along with Atsuko Ueda and Joseph A. Murphy on a collection of writings by the great Japanese novelist Natsume Soseki. The collection, titled Theory of Literature and Other Critical Writings, reproduces turn-of-the-century criticism that anticipates an astonishing range of ideas that would later form the critical foundations of formalism, structuralism, reader-response theory, cognitive science, and postcolonialism.
