Ōshio Heihachirō and Legends from the Taiping Rebellion
I have thus far offered short analyses of the various novelizations that took their material from the Taiping revolution, published in Japan during the late-Edo period. I should like at this point in the discussion to insert one major work of dramatic fiction which adopted not the style of a novel but that of historical exegesis, a work undertaken in the Taishō era, for it offers an aspect that adds considerable color to the history of Sino-Japanese relations.
