When I was studying Ancient Greek, I really enjoyed sitting down with Steadman’s annotated readers (books that look like this, where the full Greek text of literature has assistive vocab in the footnotes and explanations of irregular grammar). It basically allowed you to read the original text without needing to stop and page through your dictionary, grammar book and text commentary every other sentence.
Is there something similar for Japanese? I know there are kids’ readers and easy newsletters designed for language learners, but I’d like to read literature. The closest thing I could find mentioned on the forums was the Soseki Project which seems pretty cool.Unfortunately, I like to have a physical text to take notes and highlight stuff – and it seems like while I can download the text from TSP, the study guides are only available online and not as a single, formatted book. Any ideas or recommendations?
