This dissertation examines a selection of fictional and critical texts from the turn of the century through the s to demonstrate how mass-produced typographic media both served to produce mass consumer society in this period and functioned as sites for its critique, extending the aesthetic, linguistic, and political horizons of modern Japanese social life.
I contend that an engagement with the commodity character of printed text enabled authors to develop experimental practices of writing that problematized the nexus of mutual interactions between printed text, visual media, urban space, and the human body.
Chapter 1 traces the rise of magazines and affordable books through the late s to show how new forms of print media served as forums for the dissemination and discussion of alternative models of literary practice and social organization. In Chapter 2, I examine the journal Bungei Jidai Literary Age, to explore how a generation of authors born into the age of mass-market print established literary networks, evaluated existing paradigms of reading, and experimented with new forms of writing.
In the third chapter, I examine an array of fictional texts, sociological studies, schemas of urban planning, and other representations of modern city life in order to analyze how authors and critics understood the mutual mediations between municipal space, the printed text, and the human body in this period. Finally, in Chapter 4, I identify a shift in the understanding of printed language concurrent with the changes to urban and discursive space that I discuss in the previous chapters.
I follow discussions of language reform policies, literary formalism, the economics of the publishing industry, and the project of proletarian literature in the late s in order to demonstrate the emergence of a sense of "literary materialism" precipitated by the proliferation of typographic text. In a brief conclusion, I address the importance of this crucial period for understanding the present shift from print to digital text.

If the subject at issue is urban literature, then it must not be referred first and foremost to the pure textual form of the slogan, but instead to the complex of manifestations and expressions that it has each time adopted, as well as to the processes that brought to those expressions and naturally to its material outcomes within the urban context. Because they were powerless, they worshiped the political authority, needed to use that discourse to prove their loyalty either voluntarily or compulsorily , and eventually became victims of that language of violence.
