The best work among his works which belong to the genre of retold tales. He rewrote Japanese traditional grotesque tales narrated by his wife, Setsu, in English, having infused literary spirits in them. Hearn wrote this book to persuade the universal truth which he believed is the mental base for human beings to live on. The book has been translated into many languages.
