review 禁色 Kinjiki í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Yukio Mishima ó 6 review review 禁色 Kinjiki The gay underworld of postwar Japan In that hidden society of parks and tearooms prostitutes and aristocratic blackmailers Yuichi is as defenseless as any of the women he preys on Mordantly observed intellectually provocative and filled with icy eroticism Forbidden Colors is a masterpiec. If you ve never read Mishima before don t start with this book Begin with his first book CONFESSIONS OF A MASK then read THE TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN PAVILION which is another great early book Then read the four classic novels he wrote just before he died SPRING SNOW RUNAWAY HORSES THE TEMPLE OF DAWN and DECAY OF THE ANGELFORBIDDEN COLORS is from the sagging middle of Mishima s career What s missing is the idealism and passion of his last great novels This is a mundane world not because the main character is gay but because he s not especially heroic or even very intelligent He has no vision for himself he s a passive receptacle of other people s fantasies There s lots of bitter brilliant insight into the every day lives of homosexuals but not as much drama color and spectacle as in the last great novels when Mishima was consciously creating a series of timeless masterpieces that would capture all of the Japanese character not just the concerns of one small group

review 禁色 Kinjiki í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Yukio Mishima ó 6 review review 禁色 Kinjiki From one of Japan's greatest modern writers comes an exuisitely disturbing novel of sexual combat and concealed passion a work that distills beauty longing and loathing into an intoxicating poisoned cocktail An aging embittered novelist sets out to avenge himself on the women who have be. I admire Mishima It s too bad though that he ever heard of philosophy It makes for his worst writing And the moment he frees himself of it the prose awakens and moves often sinuously as in the early pages here He might have subtitled this one The Big Book if Misogyny In its heartless cruelty it reminds me of Choderlos de Laclos s Les Liaisons Dangereuses Mishima s second novel it was originally published in two parts in Japan in 1951 and 1953 when he was 25 and 27 In it an ugly old man a Japanese writer of some standing who s taken to falling in love with very young women finds a way to exact a horrible revenge As in the Laclos s novel this is undertaken through a number of elaborately feigned love affairs A beautiful young man who is both gay and the boyfriend of the old writer s current dalliance Yasuko is actively ensnared in a plan to jilt her There are budget struggles in the home of the young man s ailing mother Shunsuk promises to make these money problems go away if the young man Yuichi will work with him to actively break the hearts of Yasuko and many other women to whom he has in the past fruitlessly pledged his troth Shunsuk is every bit as viscous and malign as the Maruise de Merteuil in the Laclos novel but at least she possessed the virtue of devising amusing escapades Shunsuk s by contrast are absolutely humorless It s this fundamental sobriety alloyed with anger that it can be argued is at the core of many of Mishima s novels Here it takes on the petty injustices of both the gay world of the day with its superficial thralldom to beauty and the institutionalized tedium of straight marriage which in Japan at this time was still often an arranged affair In my view Mishima doesn t like what he sees in either camp

Yuichi Yuichi YuichiIt s all a bit silly because he is so much Everyone falls in love with him and the reader is pretty much the only person who doesn t get to bang him Mishima loves Yuichi too much for anything really bad to happen to him but there s the threat that weird Shunsuke will win Will a Dorian Gray style having fun and breaking hearts makes you ugly kick in Will he end up killing himself Will he turn into an aged make upped ueen Shunsuke tries to push Yuichi too far but Mishima keeps him beautiful and keeps us in love with him Really unpleasant episode with dizzy socialitebut cut to Yuichi being charming with baby daughter Like an Asian version of that Athena poster but less cheesyHe saw the golden hair of the man s chest protruding from a gap in his shirt and felt as if he were being embraced by a great hornetOn childbirth Yasuko s lower body moved like the mouth of a person vomitingTo samurai and homosexual the ugliest vice is femininityAfter Yuichi left however this middle aged nobleman would be struck by mindless passion He would pace the narrow room dressed only in his robe Finally he would fall down on the rug and roll about In a small voice he would call out Yuichi s name hundreds of times
