The Wild Goose by Mori Ogai - a new translation from Meredith McKinney, commissioned by Finlay Lloyd, of this small gem of early modern Japanese literature - a tale of thwarted love by an author influenced by Western writing but still profoundly engaged with Japanese life and its traditions. This is Meredith McKinney's twelfth book in a career of translation that includes the classics The Pillow Book and Essays in Idleness and several novels by the great early modern novelist Natsume Soseki, all for Penguin Classics. Meredith has also edited two books of the letters of Judith Wright, and published a co-translated selection of Judith Wright's poetry in Japanese. She is a Visiting Fellow at the Japan Centre, Australian National University, where she teaches translation.
