本の要約

Just as in the West there are twelve signs of the zodiac, so in Japan the years are divided among twelve annual animals, to each of whom are assigned special characteristics. In this book, however, I consider the characteristics assigned to these animals from an English point of view. Moreover, in addition to the twelve animals, only one of whom is a bird, commonly identified as the cock or the hen, I extend the number of birds to seven, calling them aerial animals for the sake of alliteration.

著者のプロフィール

Peter Milward was born in London on October 12, 1925, and educated at Wimbledon College (a Jesuit high school). He entered the Society of Jesus in 1943, and after various studies he went on to specialize in the Classics and English at Oxford University. He came to Japan in 1954 and after further studies was ordained priest in 1960. From 1962 onwards he has taught English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo. In addition to founding the Renaissance Institute, the Hopkins Society of Japan and the Chesterton Society of Japan, he has published some 400 books, mostly as textbooks for Japanese students, many of them translated into Japanese, but now most of them out of print. Several of his books, especially those on the drama of Shakespeare and the poetry of Hopkins, have been published in England and America. Even in retirement he is still teaching and writing, as he enters his 88th year (or beiju).
