Comics!
Part 1 of a series on Soseki’s Kokoro.  Click through for more!

Whoa, a comic on Natsume Soseki! He’s a huge deal in Japan, like Charles Dickens-level Essential Member of the Literary Canon, but most people outside of the country don’t seem to have heard of him. Or, well, in the US, anyway.
I know more than most people about the average American’s awareness of Soseki because I named my cat Natsume after him and am forever having people look at me blankly when I try to explain this.
