Kokoro by Lafcadio Hearn

Hints and Echoes of Japanese Inner Life The fifteen essays in this captivating volume focus on the inner, rather than the outer, life of Japan. These stories penetrate to the heart of things Japanese: "Kimiko", a portrait of a beautiful geisha; "By Force of Karma", the story of a Buddhist monk; and "A Glimpse of Tendencies" all sum up Hearn's feelings about the country he adopted as his own.
