    About "Jun'ichirō Tanizaki Anthony H. Chambers"

    1. Jun'ichirō Tanizaki Anthony H. Chambers

      Jun ichiro Tanizaki was a Japanese author, one of the major writers of modern Japanese literature, and perhaps the most popular Japanese novelist after Natsume S seki Some of his works present a rather shocking world of sexuality and destructive erotic obsessions others, less sensational, subtly portray the dynamics of family life in the context of the rapid changes in 20th century Japanese society Frequently his stories are narrated in the context of a search for cultural identity in which constructions of the West and Japanese tradition are juxtaposed The results are complex, ironic, demure, and provocative.

    1. Reading these two novellas by Junichiro Tanizaki was to fulfill what I had expected from my three week waiting for its copy to arrive I posted a brief note above why I longed to read them, especially, Captain Shigemoto s Mother in which there are 11 chapters, however, the excerpt from Chapters 9 and 10 translated by Edward Seidensticker is the prime motive urging me to read all.I would like to focus to its second novella since, in fact, it needs attention than the first one I may rethink on it [...]



    2. chambers does a good job getting the flavor across without overtranslating though it s a pity the visual effect of ashikari couldn t really be preserved pairing these two novellas together was a good choice you get some new riffs on your standard tanizaki themes mother worship, some truly weird substitution fetishes, kansai, etc



    3. My reading of both these novellas is heavily influenced by having recently read Tanizaki s Naomi a story of obsession Both stories in this book are similarly about men obsessed with a certain woman.While Naomi has a personality, a rebellious streak and likes to have a good time, the objects of affection in the two stories in this book have no personal characteristics They are admired and pampered for their beauty While no personality elements are ascribed to either of them, they are totally pass [...]


    4. These are two fabulous novellas, exploring the tension between a strict conservative society and sexual human beings, by someone who is obviously an accomplished writer The Reed Cutter is about a man who goes to visit a shrine steeped in a particular piece of history which he has always been fascinated by There, he meets a man who tells him the story of his father who was in a sexless menage a trois of selfless love and great sacrifice Mixing nostalgia of an age long past and an undercutting of [...]


    5. tanizaki could literally write about the difference between the local grasses of two different parts of japan for a whole novel and it would still be fascinating not a single thing happens for at least half of the reed cutter, but you don t even mind, and when the intensely romantic story starts all of a sudden it s like it s just the natural order of things nothing too slow or too quick and nothing out of place at all and the second book is just the same it s really three or four stories in one [...]


    6. This was my first book by Junichiro Tanisaki Although I was not thrilled with the book I have a feeling it has to do with my lack of background knowledge After reading a few I am sure I will revisit this book and take far away from it Tanisaki uses historical reference and folklore to create two tales of human vulnerability Both tales center around obsession and mother love, making a well fit pairing I would have preferred the stories had been contradictory, making a interesting juxtapositi [...]


    7. The Reed Cutter is really good, but has a strange start The only downside is that it contains dialogue, but no quotation marks, so sometimes it becomes hard to follow.Captain Shigemoto s Mother is a harder read, coming off as a quasi history book I barely managed to finish it, and admittedly, some chapters were so bad that I skimmed them instead.


    8. This just wasn t my kind of book I love the flowing, poetic style of Japanese writers, and the author did not disappoint However, the stories read like an historical account than a work of fiction This is my first time reading anything by this writer I would like to try one of his other novels In fact, I think Mishima and Murakami may have to make it back into the rotation very soon.


    9. Both novellas start with a dense, dryly allusive and almost abstract exposition After several pages, it s impossible to say when, you find yourself completely immersed in almost bodice ripping human drama Then the ending blows you away.


    10. The reed cutter has an uber slow start, a review of poetry in Heian period if you overcome that, you have a beautifully written story, a romance a bit uncomprehensible for occidentals yet described with exquisite detail, and an end in the style of old japanese narrative



    11. First time reading Tanazaki Would help to know a little bit about Japanese history and culture Otherwise what came through was bizarre sexual behavior, which is OK
