A question in the All Knowledge Is Contained On The Internet Somewhere Department:

Is there an equivalent to Lafcadio Hearn for China?

(Bonus points if they are as good a writer as Hearn.)


Subject quote from "The Ash Grove," Edward Thomas.

Try Joseph Needham, subject of a book by Simon Winchester, The Man Who Loved China. That may give you a lead to someone 19c or earlier, if that's what you really want. Winchester is a popular writer and not a scholarly one, caveat lector, but may have leads to earlier writers.

Is there an equivalent to Lafcadio Hearn for China?

In the sense of being a folklorist?
