Shiina Rinzo who was one of the best writers in Japanese modern literature published his work 『Eternal Introduction』 in 1948, as he was 37 years old, and in the mid of his life.In this work, he wrote about Sunagawa Anta showed the changes of recognition and actions when he was faced to death.That is, he explained that he regained his life newly when he had heard he could live only 3 months more. Before he didn't about his illness, he never mattered his life but he focused back to his own life since he has known about his death. And he has tried to overcome the nihilism about life and existence.The nihilism about life and existence what Shiina has tried to overcome, however, is important not only the time when Shiina appeared but also in this time when we live. With this view, Shiina should be retranslated and this modernity of Shiina is being a new assignment in studies.
