  Resolved Question: A question about English
I have a question about English. The following passage is written by a Japanese learner. Is there any grammatically incorrect or unnatural part in the following passase? If so, would you rewrite it? "Tracing back the descent of the fiction writers with lyricism, we can recall Kenzaburo Oe, and Shotaro Yasuoka and Yasunari Kawabata in addition, whose novel indeed presents the taste reflecting that of Shotaro Yasuoka, the lover of learning. His lyricism, however, quite differs from those of writers in the past, as he does never yield to the malice which surrounds the world, but would rather face up aggresively to the problem."
