Natsume Soseki’s investigation of a rapidly westernizing Japanese society and its sense of alienation has kept him famous into the 21st century: to this day, he’s considered one of the greatest Japanese writers of all time. Soseki wrote novels (most famously Kokoro in 1914), haiku and children’s fairy tales.
