Shuntarō Tanikawa 谷川俊太郎

Shuntarō Tanikawa (1931–)  is a poet and translator. Born in Tokyo, he is the son of the eminent philosopher Tetsuzō Tanikawa (1895–1989). He published his first collection of poetry in 1952 under the title Nijūoku kōnen no kodoku (Two Billion Light Years of Solitude), and was soon writing song lyrics, scripts, essays, and criticism in addition to poetry. He has produced numerous collections of poems for children, as well as translations of children’s books from English, including Daddy-Long-Legs and Songs from Mother Goose. In 1983 he was awarded the Yomiuri Prize for Literature for Hibi no chizu (tr. Map of Days). With his work translated into English, French, German, Slovakian, Danish, Chinese, and Mongolian, he has gained a readership around the world.
