On Uneven Ground
Stanford University Press

This chapter explores how Miyazawa Kenji remained integral to the production of locality in the literary sector in Japan even as the conditions of this production have changed radically. It describes the early episode in his posthumous reception which signaled a transitional moment in the way that he and his works have historically circulated in the market for cultural objects, focusing on the publication of the first zenshū. It also traces a genealogy of the fundamental ways his value in the market for cultural artifacts has intersected with his value in the market for places.

Keywords:   Miyazawa Kenji, locality, literary sector, Japan, posthumous reception, cultural objects, zenshū, cultural artifacts, market for places
