Summary Nineteenth-century Japanese literary discourse and narrative developed a striking preoccupation with ninjō-literally "human emotion," but often used in reference to amorous feeling and erotic desire. In Licentious Fictions, Daniel Poch investigates the significance of ninjō in defining the literary modernity of nineteenth-century Japan.
