Sei Ito
Birth: Jan. 16, 1905
Death: Nov. 15, 1969

Writer and literary critic, also known as "Hitoshi Ito." Among his works were "The Road Lit by Snow," "Festival of the Living," "The Phantom Town," and the "History of Japanese Literary Circles." Accused of immorality for his translation of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover," he wrote a series of articles defending freedom of expression. For his last novel, "Change," he posthumously won the 1970 Shincho Prize for literature.  (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
