Shards of Depravity was my first attempt at translating short stories. It contains three selections from Dazai Osamu 太宰治 including: "Vow Fulfillment" 満願, "Morning" 朝, and "Cherries" 桜桃. It is probably my most "complete" translation work, despite it being completed during my naive undergraduate years. Regardless, this document will always be held dear to my heart as the catalyst for my love of translation as well as my love of Japanese fiction.
