Book Description :

This collection of Japanese supernatural stories is a classic work in the field of Japanese horror. Known primarily as an early interpreter of Japanese culture and customs, the famous writer Lafcadio Hearn also wrote ghost stories—"delicate, transparent, ghostly sketches"—about his adopted land. Many of the stories found in Kwaidan, "stories and studies of strange things," are based on Japanese tales of long ago told to him by his wife; others possibly have a Chinese origin. All have been re-colored and reshaped by Hearn's inimitable hand. Some critics attribute Hearn's fascination with eerie tales to his partial blindness. Whatever its roots, he was clearly drawn to the hidden realms of the spirit world and to strange facts and marvels. In this collection of unforgettably haunting stories, Hearn brings together "the meeting of three ways"—the austere dreams of India, the subtle beauty of Japan and the relentless science of the Western world. Japanese ghost and supernatural tales include: A musician called upon to perform for the dead Man-eating goblins Insects who uncannily mimic human behavior

Book Description :

The dead wreak revenge on the living, paintings come alive, spectral brides possess mortal men and a priest devours human flesh in these chilling Japanese ghost stories retold by a master of the supernatural. Lafcadio Hearn drew on the phantoms and ghouls of traditional Japanese folklore - including the headless 'rokuro-kubi', the monstrous goblins 'jikininki' or the faceless 'mujina' who stalk lonely neighbourhoods - and infused them with his own memories of his haunted childhood in nineteenth-century Ireland to create these terrifying tales of striking and eerie power. Today they are regarded in Japan as classics in their own right. Edited with an introduction by Paul Murray

Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things, is a book by Lafcadio Hearn that features several Japanese ghost stories and a brief non-fiction study on insects.Hearn declares in his, shortly before his death, that most of these stories were translated from old Japanese texts. He also states that one of the stories - Yuki-onna - was told to him by a farmer in Musashi Province, and his was apparently the first record of it, both by his own account and according to the research of modern folklorists. Riki-Baka is based on a personal experience of Hearn's. While he does not declare it in his introduction, Hi Mawari among the final narratives in the volume seems to be a recollection of an experience in his childhood it is, setting itself apart from almost all the others, written in the first person and set in rural Wales.

Book Description :

A hybrid beast that devours dreams; a flesh-eating spectre from the graveyards of hell; a shape-shifting phantom with no face; a demonic decapitator of babies; a huge goblin-spider that drinks human blood: all these plus many more strange and sinister creatures feature in the kwaidan ("ghost stories") collated and translated by the author Lafcadio Hearn (1860-1904) during his 14-year stay in Japan. This new edition of KWAIDAN collects twenty-nine weird tales from four volumes written by Hearn, presenting the very best of his work in a true expression of Japanese lore at its bizarre and phantastic extremes. Many of these stories are not currently in print. The stories are further enhanced by eighteen illustrations of the supernatural by master ukiyo-e artist Yoshitoshi Tsukioka, from his series 36 Ghosts (1889-92). The cover illustration is by ukiyo-e master Hokusai. Kwaidan was filmed in 1964 by Masaki Kobayashi, and is now regarded as a classic of Japanese cinema; it was recently released on DVD by Criterion.

Book Description :

I think that my best apology for the insignificant size of this volume is the very character of the material composing it. In preparing the legends I sought especially for "weird beauty"; and I could not forget this striking observation in Sir Walter Scott's "Essay on Imitations of the Ancient Ballad" "The supernatural, though appealing to certain powerful emotions very widely and deeply sown amongst the human race, is, nevertheless, a "spring which is peculiarly apt to lose its elasticity by being too much pressed upon."" -- Lafcadio Hearn
