Description:

Rutland. 1965. Tuttle. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 45. 124 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 14030. FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE WORKS of Yasushi Inoue, one of Japanís most important contemporary writers and chroniclers of his society, translate extremely well into works that will interest and appeal to Westerners, These three stories, rendered into English by Leon Picon, are certainly not exceptions. The translatorís excellent introduction gives the reader a good insight into these short stories and into the author himself. Human pathos and suffering, loneliness and isolation, Oriental fatalism and Buddhistic concepts of predestination form dominant strands in the fabric of these stories, as they do in virtually all of Inoueís work. These stories, however, also show us the reverse side of the authoróhis tremendous compassion for his fellow human being. In THE COUNTERFEITER, a writer is commissioned to write the biography of a famous painter but becomes fascinated by a man who produced forgeries of the artistís work. OBASUTE concerns a man s obsession with a legend of old women being taken to a mountain and abandoned and his interpretation of the actions of members of his family in light of this legend. THE FULL MOON is a story of company politics, particularly the rise and fall of the firmís president, told largely through the incidents at annual company parties. Inoue has had training in aesthetics and experience as a newspaper reporter, and both would seem to have had marked influences on his style as a writer, Just as his work as a reporter is probably responsible for his lengthy research into detailed data before writing his stories, his exposure to Oriental art shows through in his descriptive powers. His economy of language enables him to present intense drama and complex human involvement even in his short stories, But, even more, his characters ring true and are made vivid through just the slightest possible descriptive statements. YASUSHI INOUE (born 1997) is one of Japanís most important and prolific contemporary writers. His first works, THE BULL FIGHT and THE HUNTING GUN (also published in the Tuttle Library of Japanese Literature Series), won for him the most coveted literary prize in Japan, the Akutagawa Prize, He has also received the Ministry of Education Prize for Literature for his TILES OF THE TEMPYO ERA (1957) and the Mainichi Press Prize for his TUNHAUNG (1959). The translator, LEON PICON, has for several years directed the American Cultural Center in Tokyo. He is a graduate of Brooklyn College and received his Ph.D. in Ancient Near Eastern Languages at Dropsie College, Philadelphia. He has translated several other Japanese works and collaborated in the Tuttle translation of KODOKU: SAILING ALONE ACROSS THE PACIFIC. . Bookseller Inventory #
