About Author

Lafcadio Hearn

Greek-Japanese writer, translator, and educator Patrick Lafcadio Hearn, also known as Koizumi Yakumo (27 June 1850 – 26 September 1904) was responsible for introducing Japanese culture and literature to the West. His works, particularly his compilations of tales and ghost stories like Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things, provided previously unheard-of insights into Japanese culture. He was a journalist in the US before relocating to Japan and obtaining Japanese citizenship, especially in Cincinnati and New Orleans. His New Orleans-related writings, which were inspired by his ten-year residence there, are likewise well-known. From there, he was assigned to serve as a reporter in the French West Indies for two years before being transferred to Japan, where he spent the remainder of his life. Hearn wed Setsuko Koizumi in Japan, and the two had four kids together. His publications on Japan gave the West more understanding of a culture that was at the time still foreign to it.
