Summary note
In early-1900s Japan, Misuzu Kaneko grew from a precocious bookworm to an instantly-beloved children's poet, but her life ended prematurely and her work was largely forgotten. Decades later, her poems were rediscovered just in time to touch a new generation devastated by the tsunami of 2011. This volume includes a biography of Kaneko followed by a selection of her poems in both English and the original Japanese.
