About This Event

CEAS welcomes author Glynne Walley to talk about his book Eight Dogs, or Hakkenden: Part One—An Ill-Considered Jest, a translation of Kyokutei Bakin\'s Nansō Satomi hakkenden. This multigenerational samurai saga was one of the most popular and influential Japanese books of the nineteenth century and has been adapted many times into film, television, fiction, and comics. Part One tells the story of Princess Fuse of the Satomi clan, whose tragic and heroic sacrifice leads to the creation of the Eight Dog Warriors.
