      • found: The first modern Japanese, 2016: ECIP t.p. (Ishikawa Takuboku) data view (b. 1885-d. 1912; Japanese poet who primarily wrote tanka, a traditional Japanese fixed form which, like haiku, is restricted by the number of syllables; he built upon the changes in the traditional subject matter of poems begun by Masaoka Shiki (1867-1912), who eschewed traditional subjects, such as nature, for descriptions of real experiences. Ishikawa's poems are distinctly personal, often focusing on his life and moods; in his very short life - he died of tuberculosis at age 26 - he was quite prolific; his posthumously published collected works fill seven volumes; at the time of his death he was still little known, but in the century since, many books have been published in Japanese about his life and work. In this first biography in English, world-renowned scholar Donald Keene tells the story of Ishikawa's life through his poetry and journals. Like many, Ishikawa insisted that his journals be destroyed upon his death, but his family did not comply; over the years, his journals have become almost as widely read as his poems; Keene argues that Ishikawa's writing displayed a modernity not commonly acknowledged)
