Transcript of The Izu Dancer

The Izu Dancer
Yasunari Kawabata
first Japanese to receive Noble prize in Literature
14 June 1899-16 April 1972
Kawabata's books have been described as "melancholy lyricism"
Kawabata committed suicide at his home in Zushi by gassing himself.
the high school being the equivalent of a modern university, and any student there virtually promised an elite career -- is on a holiday in the hills of Izu when he comes across a group of traveling dancers. The student and the youngest of the dancers, an innocent teenage girl, become mildly attracted to each other, but after a few days of traveling together, their ways must part.

Yuriko- mother of Chiyoko
Kaoru- sister of Eikichi and the dancer.
