The Crab Cannery Ship by Takiji Kobayashi

The Crab Cannery Ship

By Takiji Kobayashi

This collection introduces the work of Japan's foremost Marxist writer, Kobayashi Takiji (1903-1933), to an English-speaking audience, providing access to a vibrant, dramatic, politically engaged side of Japanese literature that is seldom seen outside Japan. The volume presents a new translation of Takiji's fiercely anticapitalist Kani ksen --a classic that became a runaway bestseller in Japan in 2008, nearly eight decades after its 1929 publication. It also offers the first-ever translations of Yasuko and Life of a Party Member , two outstanding works that unforgettably explore both the costs and fulfilments of revolutionary activism for men and women. The book features a comprehensive introduction by Komori Yichi, a prominent Takiji scholar and professor of Japanese literature at Tokyo University.
