In Ghostly Japan: Japanese Legends of Ghosts, Yokai, Yurei and Other Oddities Audiobook

In Ghostly Japan: Japanese Legends of Ghosts, Yokai, Yurei and Other Oddities

Author: Lafcadio Hearn Narrator: Kaipo Schwab Release Date: June 2021

The Japanese have two kinds of ghosts in their folklore-the spirits of the dead, and the spirits of the living. This classic of Japanese literature invites you to take your choice if you dare. In Ghostly Japan collects twelve ghostly stories from Lafcadio Hearn, deathless images of ghosts and goblins, touches of folklore and superstition, salted with traditions of the nation. While some of these stories contain nightmare imagery worthy of a midnight creature feature, others are not ghostly or ghastly at all. 'Bits of Poetry' offers an engaging study on verse, and 'Japanese Buddhist Proverbs' explains the meaning of several aphorisms based on Japanese cultural references. Whether you're looking to spot the demons that walk among us, or simply to enjoy the prose of a legendary craftsman, In Ghostly Japan affords countless delights. Stories include: - 'Fragment' about a young pilgrim who encounters a mountain of skulls - 'Ingwa-banashi' about a dying wife who bequeaths a rival a sinister legacy - 'A Passional Karma' about a spectral beauty who returns for her handsome samurai lover

En el Japón fantasmal Audiobook

En el Japón fantasmal

Author: Lafcadio Hearn Narrator: Ignacio Bort Release Date: May 2021

Una nueva colección de relatos fantasmales donde el terror no está reñido con la profunda enseñanza budista. En esta antología, Lafcadio Hearn vuelve a poner toda la maestría de su pluma al servicio de historias de espectros del Japón tradicional, entre quimonos poseídos, espíritus despechados, amantes que regresan de la tumba y espíritus de la naturaleza que nos advierten de los peligros del camino. - Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904), nacido en Grecia de padre irlandés y madre griega, se crió entre Grecia e Irlanda. A los diecinueve años se trasladó a los Estados Unidos para iniciar su carrera de periodismo y posteriormente a Japón en 1890, donde pasaría el resto de su vida como profesor y escritor. Fue uno de los primeros europeos en dar a conocer la cultura japonesa al lector occidental. Su larga estancia en Japón, sumada a su profundo conocimiento de la cultura y tradiciones niponas y a su imaginación poética y estilo narrativo le han asegurado un lugar privilegiado en la comunidad lectora occidental pero su especial sensibilidad y su completa comprensión del temperamento japonés le han asegurado un lugar más privilegiado aún en el corazón de los japoneses, que aún le consideran el occidental que mejor les ha comprendido.

Author: Lafcadio Hearn Narrator: Luis Pinazo Release Date: May 2021

Japanese Ghost Stories: Penguin Classics Audiobook

Japanese Ghost Stories: Penguin Classics

Author: Lafcadio Hearn Narrator: Eleanor Matsuura Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Eleanor Matsuura, known for AMC's The Walking Dead and Spooks. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Paul Murray. In this collection of classic ghost stories from Japan, beautiful princesses turn out to be frogs, paintings come alive, deadly spectral brides haunt the living and a samurai delivers the baby of a Shinto goddess with mystical help. Here are all the phantoms and ghouls of Japanese folklore: 'rokuro-kubi', whose heads separate from their bodies at night; 'jikininki', or flesh-eating goblins; and terrifying faceless 'mujina' who haunt lonely neighbourhoods. Lafcadio Hearn, a master storyteller, drew on traditional Japanese folklore, infused with memories of his own haunted childhood in Ireland, to create these chilling tales. They are today regarded in Japan as classics in their own right.
