Essays and Essays : How did rakugo, a popular art form, influence novels from the Edo period to the Meiji period? How did rakugo meet and confront modern Western art? In addition to' Kaidan Botan no Toro,'' Kaidan Midori no Enoki,'' Shinkei Kasanegafuchi,' and' Nishiki no Mai' by Encho SANYUTEI, rakugo by storytellers who were active during the same period, such as Enyu SANYUTEI, Kairakutei Burakku, and Enshi DANSHURO, are included in the discussion, and carefully read through the aspects of Meiji period stories and how' humanity' is told. Through these discussions, the author reconsiders the issue of the consistency of words and sentences and the' humanity' theory by Shoyo Tsubonochi, analyzes the process by which novels are adapted to rakugo, and various aspects in which stories cross media such as novels, rakugo (comic storytelling) and kodan (storytelling), and presents a new horizon for research on modern Japanese literature and adaptation research.
