The Second Generation of Postwar Writers (第二次戦後派作家? Dainiji Sengo-ha Sakka) is a classification in modern Japanese literature used for writers who appeared on the postwar literary scene between 1948 and 1949.
Exceptional in this generation of postwar writers are Mishima Yukio and Abe Kōbō, both of whom have received acclaim in Japan and abroad. At times, their reputation abroad has surpassed that of their reputation in Japan.
