An American in the Heart of Japan

The noted scholar Professor Donald Keene spoke at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan on Wednesday, September 14th 2011  for a Book Break to be devoted to his memoir  titled "Chronicles of My Life", published by the Columbia University Press two years ago.

Donald Keene, now 89 years old and just retired from teaching Japanese literature at Columbia University, emerges from this memoir as a scholar who has had a tremendous impact by virtue of the books he chose to write-such as his history of Japanese literature, a magnum opus; and his biography of the Emperor Meiji--and to translate. He disclosed he will apply to become a Japanese citizen and commented on his experience as a naval officer during wartime and insights into Japanese culture and literature. He said his position is not so much changed in those days and now.

The meeting was chaired by Mr Henry Scott Stokes, former Tokyo Bureau Chief of the New York Times and Financial Times, and a famous journalist for his close association with Yukio Mishima, the Japanese novelist.

The last humble question was asked by the writer of this blog, and Professor's answer was a moving and sincere statement truly simmered into the 'Hearts of Japan'.
