From the publisher's description: "Frog in the Well is the first full-length biography of Kazan in English, and, in telling his life's story, renowned scholar Donald Keene paints a fascinating portrait of the social and intellectual milieus of the late Tokugawa period. Richly illustrated with Kazan's paintings, many in color, Frog in the Well illuminates a life that is emblematic of the cultural crises affecting Japan in the years before revolution."
