Waterstones Says

The clash between the ancient traditions of the rural village and the dazzling lights of the big city is a popular topic for Japanese authors, and Sanshiro is a prime example of the adaptable genre. With gentle comedy and sage wisdom, Soseki traces his hero’s rite of passage through metropolitan Tokyo. A gem of world literature.

One of Soseki's most beloved works of fiction, the novel depicts the 23-year-old Sanshiro leaving the sleepy countryside for the first time in his life to experience the constantly moving 'real world' of Tokyo, its women and university.

In the subtle tension between our appreciation of Soseki's lively humour and our awareness of Sanshiro's doomed innocence, the novel comes to life. Sanshiro is also penetrating social and cultural commentary.
