Edward Seidensticker

Seidensticker in 2006 Edward George Seidensticker (February 11, 1921 – August 26, 2007) was a noted post-World War II American scholar, historian, and preeminent translator of classical and contemporary Japanese literature. His English translation of the epic ''The Tale of Genji,'' published in 1976, was especially well received critically and is counted among the preferred modern translations.

Seidensticker is closely associated with the work of three major Japanese writers of the 20th century: Yasunari Kawabata, Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, and Yukio Mishima. His landmark translations of novels by Kawabata, in particular ''Snow Country'' (1956) and ''Thousand Cranes'' (1958), led, in part, to Kawabata being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968.
