This work is the first in English to chart cultural relations between Japan and Russia from 1868 to 1926. Japan's ties to Europe and the United States after the Meiji Restoration of 1868 are well known, but those between Japan and Russia are not. In this book, scholars from East and West present a record of significant contacts between Japan and Russia in literature, performing and visual arts, and religion. They show how the growth of cultural relations overrode shifting political concerns. Besides outlining the problems when one culture tries to penetrate another, they suggest new ways of viewing relations between culture and power. Topics covered include the influences of Turgenev, Gogol, and Dostoyevsky on Japanese fiction, criticism, and style; why Chekhov's plays became central to Japanese theatre Japanese interest in Russian art; and the work of Father Nikolai in Japan.
