Despite its centuries-long tradition of literary and artistic depictions of love between men, around the fin de siècle Japanese culture began to portray same-sex desire as immoral. This book looks at the response to this mindset during the critical era of cultural ferment between the two world wars. The author focuses on key writers, examining how they experimented with new language, genres, and ideas to find fresh ways to represent love and desire between men. He traces the personal and literary relationships between contemporaries such as the poet Murayama Kaita, the mystery writers Eogawa Ranpo and Hamao Shiro, the anthropologist Iwata Jun'ichi, and the avant-garde innovator Inagaki Taruho, showing how these authors interjected the subject of male homoeroticism into discussions of modern art, aesthetics, and perversity.
