Satō Haruo was a modern Japanese writer and poet active from the late Meiji to the mid Shōwa era, roughly from the 1910s until his death in 1964. He worked on a wide range of genres, from the novel, poetry, and drama to literary criticism, essay, and biography. He dealt with such issues as love, romance, melancholy, and weariness, being affiliated with literary movements of intellectualism and aestheticism. While he had been concerned with anarchist ideologies at the beginning of his career, he turned more to theories of traditional Japanese beauty towards the end of his career.
