This monograph presents an introduction to Shinkyoku Urashima (1904), a so-called 'new musical drama' (shinkyoku) by the Japanese writer and intellectual Tsubouchi Shoyo. Born at the end of the feudal era in 1859, Shoyo became one of the leaders of the movement to modernize Japanese literature and drama through the encounter with Western texts and ideas, and is particularly well known for his translation of the complete Works of Shakespeare (completed between 1909 and 1927).
