This book is very valuable because it allows us to take a closer look at the connections between Shakespeare and Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, and other heavyweights that are absolutely unavoidable when considering Russian literature.

What is more, to my surprise, the author, Ms. Tachiko Hoshino, is currently a professor at the Hokkaido University of Education, Hakodate. I was surprised to find the author of this book in Hakodate, where I live! What a coincidence! What a coincidence!

The fact that I came across this book now, at this time, is also something of a coincidence. I feel that it was the right timing for us to meet.
