Detective Fiction and the Rise of the Japanese Novel, 1880-1930

Harvard East Asian Monographs, 2012

Satoru Saito


Satoru Saito examines the similarities between detective fiction and the novel in prewar Japan. Arguing that interactions between the genres were critical moments of literary engagement, Saito demonstrates how detective fiction provided a framework through which to examine and critique Japan’s literary formations and its modernizing society.
