About the Author

A prolific and long-lived novelist, Nogami Yaeko (1885-1985) is noted for her historical fiction and for her left-wing stance in the postwar period. Among her major works, Oishi Yoshio (1926) takes a critical look at the samurai tradition and Hideyoshi and Rikyu (1963) examines the tense relation between the artist and his tyrant patron. The Labyrinth (1958) is her most ambitious novel.

Maya Mortimer (Ph.D. Geneva, 2000) has taught at the universities of Zürich and Fribourg (Switzerland). She has published a study of the Shirakaba group, Meeting the Sensei: the Role of the Master in Shirakaba Writers (Brill, 2000).

Anthony Mortimer (Ph.D. Case Western Reserve University, 1971) is Emeritus Professor of English Literature at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. He has published translations from Italian (Dante, Petrarch, Michelangelo, Pirandello), French (Villon) and German (Angelus Silesius).
