Kokoro, una mexicana en Japón no es una crónica orientalista como tantas otras que se escribieron y se han seguido escribiendo sobre los “samurayes”, ya ultrapasadas y envejecidas. Tampoco es una memoria de viajes, que igualmente se apaga con la nostalgia. Tampoco nos quiere impresionar por su conocimiento de esa lengua y esa cultura “tan exóticas”, como lo hicieron siempre los viajeros occidentales. Nada de eso, este libro no está escrito con prepotencia ni tampoco con snobismo. No continúa la tradición del discurso orientalista y pintoresquista que hacen del otro el oscuro y ambiguo objeto del deseo. Escrito en un lenguaje coloquial, tanto por la marca de la oralidad, como porque todo él es un largo coloquio en el cual se mezclan esos dos mundos, esas dos tradiciones, la azteca y la nipona, en sus aristas aún vivas y que se vivifican mutuamente desde el interior del espíritu y la intimidad. Por eso es muy afortunado el título, Kokoro, que explícitamente evoca el otro Kokoro, el de Lafcadio Hearn, los “ecos y nociones de la vida interior japonesa”. JORGE RUEDAS DE LA SERNA (UNAM) En este bello libro una joven nos habla de su vida en el Japón de los años 80. Conforme va comprendiendo la complejidad y profundidad del alma japonesa, se va descubriendo a sí misma y a su propia cultura. Este es un libro sutil y exquisito escrito con el kokoro (el corazón) de una joven espontánea y sincera. KATO TAKAHIRO (Director, Centro de Estudios Latinoamericanos, Universidad Nanzan, Japón)

The great Japanese author’s most famous novel, in its first new English translation in half a century No collection of Japanese literature is complete without Natsume Soseki's Kokoro, his most famous novel and the last he completed before his death. Published here in the first new translation in more than fifty years, Kokoro—meaning "heart"—is the story of a subtle and poignant friendship between two unnamed characters, a young man and an enigmatic elder whom he calls "Sensei." Haunted by tragic secrets that have cast a long shadow over his life, Sensei slowly opens up to his young disciple, confessing indiscretions from his own student days that have left him reeling with guilt, and revealing, in the seemingly unbridgeable chasm between his moral anguish and his student's struggle to understand it, the profound cultural shift from one generation to the next that characterized Japan in the early twentieth century.

Generally speaking, we construct for endurance, the Japanese for impermanency. Few things for common use are made in Japan with a view to durability. The straw sandals worn out and replaced at each stage of a journey; the robe consisting of a few simple widths loosely stitched together for wearing, and unstitched again for washing; the fresh chopsticks served to each new guest at a hotel...-from "The Genius of Japanese Civilization"Kokoro, roughly translated into English, means "heart," though it can also signify the emotional mind, spirit, courage, and resolve. In 1896, just as Japan was opening to the West and interest in Japanese culture in the outside world was flowering, Western expatriate Lafcadio Hearn published this charming and insightful valentine to his adopted country. In sweetly lyrical prose, Hearn extols the "strange morality" of Japanese crime and punishment, the startling beauty of Japanese music, the graceful demureness of Japanese women, and much more. Japanophiles and travelers to the East will delight in this extraordinary foreign journal by a traveler so in love with the land that he stayed for the rest of his life.Bohemian and writer PATRICK LAFCADIO HEARN (1850-1904) was born in Greece, raised in Ireland, and worked as newspaper reporter in the United States before decamping to Japan. He also wrote Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan (1894), In Ghostly Japan (1899), and Japan: An Attempt at Interpretation (1904).

No collection of Japanese literature is complete without Kokoro, Natsume Soseki's most successful novel, his most profound work, and the last one he completed before his death. Coinciding with the centennial of the novel's original publishing comes this new translation of Soseki's masterpiece, which foreshadowed Akutagawa, Kawabata, and Murakami. Kokoro (Japanese for "heart") tells the story of a subtle, moving friendship between two nameless characters, a young man and an enigmatic old man referred to as Sensei. Tortured by tragic secrets that have cast an enormous shadow on his life, Sensei slowly opens himself up to his young disciple, confessing indiscretions from his days as a student that have left a trail of guilt and that reveal--in the seemingly insurmountable abyss of his moral anguish and his fight to understand the mysteries of love and fate--the profound cultural change from one generation to the next that characterized Japan at the beginning of the 20th century.

The world we think we know so well is merely one of many mental stage shows, films, images and realities - every one are projections of an infinite consciousness. Kokoro is the epic story of divine human consciousness and the world that exists beyond the illusion of flesh and bone, time and space. It is a narrative that tells of the plight of humanity, from the construction of time to our present 'mind machine' based reality. In two parts and through his highly individual style of visionary artwork, Neil Hague tells the story of the lion Kokoro (which means Heart) and his emergence in a world fashioned by the creator God Naga (the Serpent) and the Puppet Master - Marduk. Inspired by numerous artists, legends and philosophies, from Blake's Jerusalem to the Book of Revelation, The story of Kokoro shows how a prison world controlled by fear is transformed through freedom and love. It is the legend of Alpha and Omega and through a kaleidoscope of worlds, symbolism and colour it is designed to inspire all ages. Kokoro is a timely adventure revealing the emergence of the true human being. Somewhere in our memory banks, at the core of who we truly are, I know that love will find a way." Neil Hague

Literally meaning "heart," the Japanese word "kokoro" can be more distinctly translated as "the heart of things" or "feeling." Natsume Soseki's 1914 novel, which was originally published in serial format in a Japanese newspaper, "Kokoro" deals with the transition from the Japanese Meiji society to the modern era. Divided into three parts "Sensei and I," "My Parents and I," and "Sensei and His Testament," the novel explores the themes of loneliness and isolation. In the first part we find the narrator attending university where he befriends an older man, known only as "Sensei," who lives a largely reclusive life. In the second part of the novel the narrator graduates from college and returns home to await the death of his father. The third part of the novel recounts a letter that the narrator receives from the "Sensei," which describes the circumstances that caused his loss of faith in humanity and the guilt he feels over the death of a childhood friend which drives him to the reclusive life that he has led. A deeply thematic novel "Kokoro" provides an excellent introduction to one of Japan's most beloved authors, Natsume Soseki. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper and follows the translation of Edwin McClelland.
