Teikoku Bungaku (帝国文学, teikoku empire + bungaku literature) was a literature magazine from 1895 to 1920 contributed by Japanese writers, Inoue Tetsujiro, Ueda Kazutoshi, Takayama Chogyu and Ueda Bin.[citation needed] With a focus on asserting the individuality of Japanese literature, the magazine often contrasted Japanese and global literature by covering writers such as Maurice Maeterlinck, George Bernard Shaw and Friedrich Nietzsche.[1] The magazine was published by Tokyo Imperial University.[2][3]
