One of Japan's most popular novels, this timeless tale of a changing society combines old idealism with modern independence. Written in 1906 and loosely based on the author's life, it recounts the experiences of a teacher who moves from Tokyo to an isolated town. Botchan — rash and impulsive in his actions, direct and frank in his speech — is an especially popular figure with young readers, although the Times Literary Supplement noted, &quote;This rollicking rebel, and the spice and pace of the narrative, will appeal to parent, teacher, and schoolchild alike.&quote; This edition offers an excellent translation of the author's poetic prose.
