TransLiterary Lab (#2): live analysis and translation of Japanese literary excerpts

By | December 24, 2019

I’ve decided to start a new series called “TransLiterary Lab” (文学翻訳ラボ) where I do analysis and translation of short excerpts of Japanese literature. You can see more information about this series in this post.

In this second episode I will continue where I left off in episode one, and translate a little more of Akutagawa Ryunosuke’s piece “Frog” (蛙) for which you can the full text here.

If you have any suggested passages please feel free to let me know via a comment here or email to selftaughtjapanese (at)
