About the Author

Takuboku Ishikawa (1886-1912) was the son of a Zen priest. A middle-school dropout, he was raised in rural Shibumi and emigrated to Tokyo as a young man. In Tokyo, he frequented literary circles and began to write poetry and fiction and to support himself as a journalist. He later worked as a substitute teacher and journalist in northern Honshu and Hokkaido before returning to Tokyo. He died, in poverty, from tuberculosis at the age of twenty-seven.
