ABSTRACT

This paper looked at the sketches that appeared in modern Japanese literature. A sketch is a method of Western art. It is an observation of nature from outdoors. I note that the method of sketching has influenced Japanese writers. This paper revolved around Roka's "Nature and life" and Toson's "sketch of Chikuma River". "Nature and life" is characterized by a description of nature. So it had a great influence on the young generation of the Meiji Era. He described as a technique of Impressionism, which focuses on light and color. Toson's work reveals realism and empirical spirit. He discribed people who live in a poor environment. Humans can survive by obeying nature, sometimes. Toson described it dynamically as if it were a painting by Millet. The method of sketch is the spirit of positivism of the Meiji Era.
