This publication represents the first systematical overview of Japanese literature in the Czech language. The first part of the book introduces the reader to the historical development and individual phases of Japanese literature since its beginnings in pre-literary narrations over the golden time of the court culture to the dawn of modern Japan. The second section contains an alphabetical lexicon of literary terms, forms and genres, individual authors and works. A useful tool not only for literary critics and students of oriental studies.
