And I would my translation and literary experiences that suggest the have robbed myself and my students of a misreading that value of looking beyond our expectations.

So I believe firmly in the idea that sometimes we can process is that one must predict what one will discover, stumble upon valuable truths even when in fact most of the time we disif we are clueless about all the cover just the opposite or something details and facts.

I come to this belief with This species of serendipity is a conwhat I perceive to be a modistant source of wonder to me. I am cum of intellectual integrity.

So I have I was trying to find the balance between conscious, intentional enthusiasm for what also come to undereffort and the improvisational state of no consciousness.

But throughout my training I kept struggling with my inner American that just wanted to shoot a bunch of arrows from all over the place until my brain and body figured out what to do. I was trying to find the balance between conscious, intentional effort and the improvisational state of no consciousness.

Another, more recent discovery is Gabriela Montero, a pianist who does classical improvisation at the end of her concerts because she sees improvisation in the classical piano tradition as a lost art, one that used to be regular expectation for virtuoso performances. I find it quite spiritual. Where does it come from? This is yet another side of serendipity. Serendipity led me from a study of Japanese oral storytellers to the Ainu, aboriginal inhabitants of Japan whose language and culture diverge dramatically from the Japanese.

Among the traditional Ainu, storytellers also narrate using the voices of animals, which are actually gods who choose to come among humans disguised as animals, both to enjoy their company and to surrender their physical bodies in return for prayers and offerings. The Ainu storytelling perspective opened up to me a new way of looking at the narrating voice.

And so it follows that a competent translator should be like a skilled storyteller, able to incorporate both conscious aptitude—a panoply of voices and personas—as well as improvisation—being in tune with the audience and the flow of the moment—as they seek to embody voices from other cultures and other times.

Modern Japan has witnessed a number of brilliant young writers cut down in the prime of life. Kajii, whose life spanned the first third of the twentieth century, rode the wave of modernist experiments to create his own style of eloquent, introspective fiction. Kajii was born in Osaka and studied in Kyoto and Tokyo, but at the young age of nineteen he contracted tuberculosis, which eventually led to his premature death at age thirty-one.

His works, in the ensuing decades, have found recurring favor among critics, readers, and translators. I have been translating two of his works that have yet to be formally published in English, largely owing to the difficulty of rendering the poetic and symbolic power of their brief but dense language. In my versions I have been attempting to practice a kind of translation that transcends mere correspondence. Taking my lead from the Ainu storyteller, I want the author to speak from the dust, as it were. I do not want my translations to be the reconstitution of dead texts showing us a dead world, but rather a resurrected series of thoughts and impressions coming to us from another place and time, showing us new ways to see our world.

Kajii began these two works during his recuperation at a hot springs resort on the Izu peninsula, and they reveal his own struggle to come to grips with his terminal illness.
