Reflections in a Glass Door

Marvin Marcus

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter presents some personal thoughts on Natsume Sōseki and on the course of this book project, in part mirroring the conventions of the shōhin by splitting these personal insights into brief episodes of the author's own life. The first one takes place in Tokyo in 2003, and chronicles a pilgrimage to Zōshigaya, where Sōseki's remains have been interred. The next vignette takes place in London two years later, and recounts a pilgrimage of a different kind—a trip to the Sōseki Museum. The final episode takes place another two years later in St. Louis, yet reflects on experiences from as far back as the 1970s, including the author's introduction to Mori Ō, Sōseki's contemporary.

Keywords:   Zōshigaya, grave, Sōseki Museum, Mori Ō, Natsume Sōseki
