本の要約

By way of sequel, or rather prequel, to my "Diary Thoughts on Ecology", in which I presented my varying thoughts on the problem of Ecology during the year 1992, here are my other varying thoughts on the Japanese countryside even in the city of Tokyo during the previous year 1991.
Just at a time when the city seems to be spreading out its tentacles deep into the countryside of Japan, I show how the country is taking its revenge by sending out its shoots deep into the city of Tokyo. The motto of this book is the saying of the 18th century poet William Cowper, "God made the country, but Man made the town."

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).
