In Praise of Shadows

This is an enchanting essay on aesthetics by one of the greatest Japanese novelists.
Tanizaki's eye ranges from architecture to food and combines an acute sense of the use
of space in buildings with perfect descriptions of lacquerware under candlelight and
women in the darkness of a house of pleasure. The result is a classic description of
the collision between the shadows of traditional Japansese interiors and the dazzling
light of the modern age.
