Takase Bune + The Ballad of Reading Gaol

November 11, 2015 | Comics, Visual Work

I am happy to be in another issue of Seven Stories Graphic Canon compilation — this one is about crime (!!!) and includes two stories combined – Takase Bune by Mori Ōgai about a criminal being taken to an island of exile; the second is The Ballad of Reading Gaol, a poem by Oscar Wilde that reflects his encounters with capital punishment and prison.
