• Lost and Found: Children’s Poet Kaneko Misuzu

    After she took her life in March 1930, the poems of Kaneko Misuzu were lost in obscurity for decades until she was rediscovered in the 1960s by a young poet called Yazaki Setsuo, although her collected works were not published until 1984. Her poems are now well known, appearing in textbooks, and beloved by generations of Japanese people. (Photographs courtesy of Preservation Association of Misuzu Kaneko’s Works.)
