「私の生ひ立ち」 ("Watashi No Oitachi")

"Watashi No Oitachi" is Akiko Yosano's only autobiography that was highly praised throughout the history of Japanese literature. Later in the years when it was combined with the beautiful illustrations of the Taisho Roman artist Yumeji Takehisa, the book caught huge attention and was picked up widely by media for its value.

This digital book contains "Watashi No Oitachi" and "Watashi No Mita Shojo", taken from "Watashi No Oitachi – popular edition –", published by Kanko-Sha in 1990. These pieces both appeared in a magazine serial in "Shin Shojo" (1915-1916).
