The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea by Yukio Mishima
The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea

octavioaristi, April 12, 2007

Mishima has always lingered in the realm of values from a post-war Japanese social perspective, in which many concepts changed and adaptability became a must, giving free range to a way of life that could be well more "advanced" in western terms. Traditional Japanese ideas and costums were ingrained and new methods were implemented. In this novel, the stubborness of the youngsters persists no matter how violent they become, just to keep up a given modus-vivendi they could justify.
