A great ending to a great tetralogy the ending is drilled in my memory like a painting I can see Honda on his cane uestioning his life and Satoko guided by her assistant gazing at the garden a place that had no memories as Honda said with the sunlight streaming on the trees

Of all the books that I ve read so far this has got to be the hardest book to review I feel like my love for this book stems mainly from certain aspects that have little to do with the book itselfAs an admirer of Yukio Mishima this book meant much to me than any other novel of his since it documented his last thoughts before his poetic demise The finished manuscript waited on the desk as he turned his life into the Line of Poetry written with a splash of Blood that he had longed for letting his fictional world collapse along with him in a poetic climax He will always be one of the most honest and poetically destructive writers that has ever lived May he rest in peace

characters 天人五衰 Tennin Gosui Yukio Mishima Ú 7 review read & download ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ú Yukio Mishima As the dramatic climax of The Sea of Fertility 'The Decay of the Angel' brings together the dominant themes of the three previous novels the meaning and decay of Japan's courtly tradition and samurai ideal; the essence and value of Buddhist philoso. What s this one about do you suppose There is in all translations of Mishima s work I have read by a host of translators a fundamental woodeness or clunkiness of description especially in his philosophical flights In Japan he is often referred to as a stylist with a penchant for archaic Japanese word forms So it could be that Mishima s use of archaisms means he doesn t translate well into English I don t know But this fourth volume of The Sea of Fertility tetralogy seems to me in the first half worst of the batch One has no idea why the characters are alternately so goddamned indifferent then so cruel The novel s seems to be all surface Why is there mention of evil out of the blue like that What s evil I d like to be shown T ru s evil and not simply be told about it It would do wonders for the suspense Yet the motivations are often completely opaue Except at the end there is little or no insight into character T ru is without parentage No past for him is ever given He lives alone without friends motivated like most Mishima protagonists entirely by a mix of na vet and cryptic self inuiry The day after Mishima finished this MS he committed suicide He was 45 Maybe that was his only alternative He certainly makes clear here as in all his books to some degree his absolute detestation of old age The book seems to me a farrago a pastiche whose fragments are not without interest but a novel they do not make
