(p.55) Chapter Three Toward a Provincializing Literary Production
On Uneven Ground
Stanford University Press

This chapter explores the provincialization of literary production in Japan in the context of Miyazawa Kenji's children's book The Restaurant of Many Orders. It explains that many of Miyazawa's experiments with narrative strategies with provincializing intent were incorporated in this novel and contends that the history of this work illustrates what provincial publishers were up against in trying to compete in such an uneven literary market. This chapter also highlights the impact of Miyazawa's exchange with the dowa movement on his literary career.
