For the first project in the Council on East Asian Studies’s reprint series for rare and out of print publications, we are pleased to introduce an electronic republication of Rereading Sōseki: Three Early Twentieth-Century Japanese Novels, a very influential work from 1998 on the celebrated Japanese novelist Natsume Sōseki, written by Reiko Abe Auestad of the University of Oslo. J. Keith Vincent of Boston University has written a new introduction, and Auestad has provided a new preface as well as a bibliography of recent critical studies on Sōseki. We would like to thank John Whittier Treat for recommending this work, the book’s publishers for helping clear the rights, and the staff at the Yale Library for helping make this reprint a reality.
