As one of the important components of world literature, Japanese literature has conceived a large number of classic works around human nature, beauty and evil, love, sex, reflection, and absurdity, forming a distinctive and influential literary system. And its unique and distinctive traditional aesthetics has also had a profound impact on the Japanese nation and even Asian literature. This article first summarizes the origin and development of modern Japanese literature, and then expounds the characteristics of Japanese literature. Finally, it analyzes and introduces the reasons for the formation of aesthetic concepts in Japanese literature.
