Double Fictions analyzes the myriad manifestations of the
dopplegänger in Japanese literary and cinematic texts at two historical
junctures: the interwar period of the 1920s and 1930s and the present day. From
psychoanalytic theory to Japanese detective fiction, Baryon Tensor Posadas
reveals how the dopplegänger motif provides a fascinating new backdrop for
understanding the enmeshment of past and present.
