Japanese Ghost Stories review í eBook or Kindle ePUB read & download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB µ Lafcadio Hearn In this collection of classic ghost stories from Japan beautiful princesses turn out to be frogs paintings come alive deadly spectral brides haunt the living and a samurai delivers the baby of a Shinto goddess with mystical hel Whoever pretends not to believe in ghosts of any sort lies to his own heart Every man is haunted by ghosts though most of us poets excepted are unwilling to confess the acuaintance This new edition of Hearn s retellings of Japanese folk stories took me longer to get through than I anticipated I usually review short story collections by breaking them down and rating each story on its own but I found that I was unable to do it in this case there are thirty four of them and save for a few exceptions they were just a little too bite sized and felt like sketches or vignettes than fleshed out stories to meThe book starts with a short biography of Hearn 1850 1904 which was fascinating and uite eye opening in order to understand what drew him to these dark tales He was born in Greece raised in Ireland abandoned by every parental figure he ever had and then moved uite literally all over the world Cincinnati New Orleans the French Indies and finally Japan where he eventually married a native became a naturalized citizen and started collecting the country s myths and legends putting them into English and offering the Western world a glimpse of Japanese culture for the first timeThe low rating is not due to Hearn s writing which was good a bit reminiscent of Poe I thought or maybe the subject matter is what brought him to mind No it was the stories themselves that didn t do it for me as most followed the same formulas but you can t fault Hearn for it since he just collected existing legends Young samurais fall in love with fair maidens which then turn out to be goblins vampire frogs yes really some other mythical creature or just deceased samurais and fair maidens die of heartsickness because that s what infatuation apparently used to do to people dead wives come back to haunt or kill the women who took their place after their passing because they don t wish their widower to ever feel happiness again monks are often involved and must stand against evil spirits You get the gist They were okay but they all kind of blend together and none really stood out except a rather memorable one about a concubine who ends up with a corpse s severed and groping hands permanently attached to her breastsThe stories collected are in order of their original publication and Hearn s presence as a narrator is very obvious in the early ones to the point that it really confused me when I started reading until I realized that he was framing the tales with how he came to hear them and from whom I wasn t a fan of this and think they should ve been annotations instead if included at all but he obviously broke this habit later in life and as such the collection improves towards the end The stories also come with many footnotes explaining the meaning of Japanese words used or giving other cultural context information needed in order to better understand the story as a complete outsider These are undoubtedly much of the reason why Hearn s writings are still rather popular in academia but unfortunately the ARC I received was weirdly formatted with the links to the footnotes broken so the text just showed up some pages later interrupting a different sentence As such they weren t very useful in my case and I found myself wishing I were reading a physical copy than onceThis wasn t a complete waste of time I appreciated the collection for the historical context and cultural glimpse than anything else they are today regarded as classics in their own right in Japan but I find myself largely unimpressed by the content itself the Japanese are generally known for their seriously twisted horror stories and I just
