Collection Spotlight: Abe Kobo

Abe Kobo (pron. “AH-bay KOH-boh”) (1924-1993) stands out dramatically from his contemporaries in postwar Japanese literature. His works bear no resemblance to the subjective, ultra-realistic and
autobiographical style that characterizes a great deal of postwar literature in general and postwar Japanese literature in particular.
