9780226068374: For Dignity, Justice, and Revolution: An Anthology of Japanese Proletarian Literature

Fiction created by and for the working class emerged worldwide in the early twentieth century as a response to rapid modernization, dramatic inequality, and imperial expansion. In Japan, literary youth, men and women, sought to turn their imaginations and craft to tackling the ensuing injustices, with results that captured both middle-class and worker-farmer readers. This anthology is a landmark introduction to Japanese proletarian literature from that period.

Contextualized by introductory essays, forty expertly translated stories touch on topics like perilous factories, predatory bosses, ethnic discrimination, and the myriad indignities of poverty. Together, they show how even intensely personal issues form a pattern of oppression. Fostering labor consciousness as part of an international leftist arts movement, these writers, lovers of literature, were also challenging the institution of modern literature itself. This anthology demonstrates the vitality of the “red decade” long buried in modern Japanese literary history.

About the Author:

Heather Bowen-Struyk is the coeditor of Red Love Across the Pacific and the guest editor for Proletarian Arts in East Asia, a special edition of the journal positions. Norma Field retired in 2011 as the Robert S. Ingersoll Distinguished Service Professor in Japanese Studies at the University of Chicago. Her books include In the Realm of a Dying Emperor.

Review:

“The thread of thought underlying the stories in Field and Bowen-Struyk’s anthology is not an obsolete or vanished one, but is, as Edmund Wilson eloquently established in To the Finland Station, one of the fundamental components of our contemporary consciousness.” (Kyoto Journal)

For Dignity, Justice, and Revolution is an activist anthology: savvy, vibrant, and engaging. It grabs you, the reader, by the lapels and addresses you directly, with a rare sense of urgency not found in other such collections. This volume is not just welcome; it is an essential guidebook for navigating twentieth-century Japan’s literary and political terrain.” (Edward Fowler, University of California, Irvine)

“Even among Anglo-American scholars, proletarian literature in Japan has been largely ignored, which makes this collection of prewar ‘red’ literature both timely and overdue. Any anthology risks becoming unwieldy, yet this one is lucidly structured around themes such as children, realism and imperialism. . . . The editors have also made the welcome decision to retain self-censored and suppressed passages.” (Japan Times)

For Dignity, Justice, and Revolution fills a major gap in our knowledge of the global movement to create a form for the expression of working people’s lived experience during the ‘red decade’ of the 1930s. This collection opens views onto the struggles of diseased prostitutes, telephone linemen, muslin weavers, fishmongers, farmers, and factory workers, as well as the debates swirling among leftist intellectuals about how to forge solidarity and shape consciousness among men, women, and children; urban and rural dwellers; colonialized Koreans; and former geishas. The editors have brought to light a history hidden by repression and neglect.” (Paula Rabinowitz, University of Minnesota)

“A significant contribution to the body of English language scholarship and translation of Japanese proletarian literature. . . . This book goes a long way toward filling a gap of neglect in the study of proletarian literature. . . . Highly recommended.” (Choice)

"This engaging and in-depth anthology provides the reader and scholar with access to more than the 'greatest hits' of proletarian literature that are currently available in translation, making it possible for the subject to play a larger role in Japanese literature classes." (Japan Studies)

“Two generations ago Frank Motofuji’s translation of Kobayashi Takiji’s 1929 The Crab Cannery Ship introduced English readers to what was once the world’s most articulate left cultural project. Kobayashi experienced a 2008 best-selling boom in a Japan weary of two decades of economic decline, but Bowen-Struyk and Field note that scholars largely ‘ignore’ the genre. Now that has changed. These excellent translations of excellent writers make timely reading, as Marxism revives in the face of a current century that will be far different at its conclusion from today.” (John Treat, Yale University)

“The finely crafted translations of short fiction and criticism that compose this groundbreaking anthology underscore the crucial role proletarian writers played in the formation of modern Japanese literature. For Dignity, Justice, and Revolution demonstrates brilliantly how these writers critically engaged with the global proletarian movement as they sought to further the cause of class justice and anti-imperialist/antiwar struggle.” (Theodore Hughes, Columbia University)
