Ozaki, Yei Theodora: Japanese Fairy Tales:. v1, 9 Feb 2008

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:


Yei Theodora Ozaki was an early 20th century translator of Japanese short stories and fairy tales. Her translations were fairly liberal but have been popular, and were reprinted several times after her death.
According to "A Biographical Sketch" by Mrs. Hugh Fraser, included in the introductory material to Warriors of old Japan, and other stories, she came from an unusual background. She was the daughter of Baron Ozaki, one of the first Japanese men to study in the West, and Bathia Catherine Morrison, daughter of William Morrison, one of their teachers. Her parents separated after five years of marriage, and her mother retained custody of their three daughters until they became teenagers. At that time, Yei was sent to live in Japan with her father, which she enjoyed. Later she refused an arranged marriage, left her father's house, and became a teacher and secretary to earn money. Over the years, she traveled back and forth between Japan and Europe, as her employment and family duties took her, and lived in places as diverse as Italy and the drafty upper floor of a Buddhist temple.
All this time, her letters were frequently misdelivered to the unrelated Japanese politician Yukio Ozaki, and his to her. In 1904, they finally met, and soon married.


Japanese Fairy Tales includes: My Lord Bag Of Rice, The Tongue-Cut Sparrow, The Story Of Urashima Taro, The Fisher Lad, The Farmer And The Badger, The "Shinansha," Or The South Pointing Carriage, The Adventures Of Kintaro, The Golden Boy, The Story Of Princess Hase, The Story Of The Man Who Did Not Wish To Die, The Bamboo-Cutter And The Moon-Child, The Mirror Of Matsuyama, The Goblin Of Adachigahara, The Sagacious Monkey And The Boar, The Happy Hunter And The Skillful Fisher, The Story Of The Old Man Who Made Withered Trees To Flower, The Jelly Fish And The Monkey, The Quarrel Of The Monkey And The Crab, The White Hare And The Crocodiles, The Story Of Prince Yamato Take, Momotaro, Or The Story Of The Son Of A Peach.
