Lafcadio Hearn, “Some Chinese Ghosts”


A stylized retelling of ancient legends


Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) was instrumental in introducing Western readers to Japanese culture and literature. Raised in Dublin and a longtime resident of the United States, the writer, translator, and teacher adopted Japanese citizenship and served as Professor of English Literature at the Imperial University of Tokyo.


Some Chinese Ghosts (1887), a stylized retelling of ancient legends, was one of his earliest books, a foreshadowing of his later fascination with Asian themes. This collection of six stories reveals his deep fascination with the “weird beauty” of Chinese folk-tales.
