The Frandon Agricultural School Pig stands out as a unique masterpiece of Japanese fiction taking up the treatment of animals by humans. This deeply moving story of the pig who is literally forced to sign his own death warrant was written in the early 1920s by Kenji Miyazawa, considered one of Japan's greatest writers of the 20th century. It was not published until well after Kenji's death in 1933. Even today vegetarians are few and far between in Japan; in Kenji's day they were a true rarity. He himself spent his entire adult life as a vegetarian. It is time that this classic of modern Japanese literature--with its painful message about the sad truth of our cruelty to animals--reaches a worldwide readership. This is the story's first translation into a foreign language; and it is hoped that the translation will resonate back to Japan so that the people of that nation will become aware of the need to enhance animal welfare in the 21st century. This book is Dual Language, and ideal for students of both English and Japanese. 「フランドン農学校の豚」 ロジャー・パルバース訳、アリス・パルバースの挿絵、読みやすい英語と原文が両方楽しめる!
