The Japanese author index

Use the following menus to display tables with the names of premodern or modern Japanese writers in both English and Japanese. Also included are the author's dates and the main genre or genres in which he or she worked. Note that these lists follow the usual Japanese practice of giving the surname first, and that Japanese orthography has been given preference. As a convenience, spaces have been added to the Japanese versions of the names to indicate the break between first and last names; normally these spaces would not appear.
