'From the early subversive poetic experiments of the 1920s avant-garde to the startling thematic and aesthetic contributions of cinematic auteurs from the 1970s, Majella Munro's history and analysis of the influence of Surrealism in Japan presents many startling, provocative and important art works. Featuring the work of Hiroshi Teshigahara, Terayama Shuji, Okamoto Taro, Takiguchi Shuzo, Fukuzawa Ichiro, Kawabata Yasunari, Yamamoto Kansuke and many others, this new publication uses the Surrealists' exploration of eroticism, the subconscious, and the nature of reality to provide an incisive and thoroughly researched account of the development of modernism in Japan.' - Excerpts from the book cover.   

This book includes biographies of Japanese artists discussed in the book, glossary, and bibliography.
