Journal of Comparative LiteratureThe study of comparative literature has been characterized by the interdisciplinary approach combining literature and art, and this book is an outstanding example of the practice. . . . The author’s comparative study of Chinese and Japanese depictions of beauty from ancient times through Medieval and early modern to modern times is superb. . . . Another great contribution this book makes is clarification of cultural backgrounds based on similarities and differences observed in iconographic expressions of feminine beauty.
