Osaki Midori was a writer of short stories, poetry, essays, dramatic works, and a novel. Characterized as a Modern Girl, she is often discussed alongside writers such as Hasegawa Shigure, Kaneko Misuzu, and Nomizo Naoko. Her works feature female experiences in the city, sisterhoods and female relationships, and discussions of sensorial and aesthetic boundaries. Although she only published across two decades, her works were rediscovered toward the end of her life, and scholarship on them has continued in the decades following her passing.
