Japanese poet Usgukawa's (1886-1912) collection of tanka traditional 36-syllable poems was published in English translation by Purdue University Press in 1977 as Sad Toys ; the introduction and notes are revised slightly here. The diary covers from April to June 1909 and is here translated in full for the first time; it portrays a disturbed artist in Japan as it was undergoing radical change during the Meiji era.

Takuboku Ishikawa (1886-1912) was the son of a Zen priest. A middle-school dropout, he was raised in rural Shibumi and emigrated to Tokyo as a young man. In Tokyo, he frequented literary circles and began to write poetry and fiction and to support himself as a journalist. He later worked as a substitute teacher and journalist in northern Honshu and Hokkaido before returning to Tokyo. He died, in poverty, from tuberculosis at the age of twenty-seven.Language Notes:
