Mutsuo TAKAHASHI (1937–) is one of Japan’s most prominent living poets, rising to prominence in the 1960s with his bold poetic evocations of homoerotic desire. Takahashi has published several dozens of books of poetry and countless volumes of poetry, essays, and literary criticism. The 2018 book Tsui kinō no koto (Only Yesterday), from which these translations come, is a retrospective in which Takahashi reflects back on his own life with special focus on his great love for ancient Greece and the ways that it inspired and shaped his own love for men.
