Talk by William Wilson
Speaker Series: Ghosts, Changelings and Apparitions in Traditional Japanese Tales
Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities
Traditional tales are like thumbnail sketches of the Japanese psyche and a glimpse into submerged memories passed down through generations. Many of these stories are explanations of supernatural events that took place in specific locales that people have believed and often still believe to have been true. As tales of the “common folk,” they provide a counterpoint to high literature of individual classic and modern authors.
