The Japanese Spirit

by Yoshisaburo Okakura

"The Japanese Spirit," by a native Japanese, is a most delightful little book. Modestly the writer tries to express the essence of his people's life and thought to a foreign western people. The book is the outgrowth or the permanent form of lectures on Japan given in the University of London by Mr. Okakura. The preface, by Mr. George Meredith, makes a most tempting stepping stone to the book itself, which is all too brief.The most fitting thing to say of "The Japanese Spirit" is "Read it yourself; the charm of the book and the 'Spirit' will possess you, and you will long for the time when our western world will have shared some part of the noble flavor of Japan."
