This chapter explores Lafcadio Hearn’s non-fiction folklore writing. Hearn wrote several non-fiction folklore books that detailed folk entities such as ghosts. When Hearn stayed in Japan, the non-fiction book he wrote about Japan gave detailed description of Japanese folklore, and this allowed the Weste to get a glimpse into the elusive Japanese culture.
