美しさと哀しみと Utsukushisa to kanashimi to

Lover Keiko Sakami and the unfolding relationships between Oki Otoko and Keiko form the plot of the novel Keiko states several times that she will avenge Otoko for Oki's abandonment and the story coalesces into a climactic ending. If we rid ourselves of every cultural artifact that blended love and hate together in eual measure we would be be left with very little that is worth remembering Love without hate is optimistic and hate without love is depressing but to have both That is an accurate portrayal of ourselves and after countless millennia we still crave the tales that delve unflinchingly into that bright and terrible line between the two But is it really a line What causes one to cross it and for how long And do we really travel from one realm to another the euphoric uplift and the bitter agony via clean and complete transitions Is it all that simple By those rules this book should have never existed one detailing the relationship between a young girl and a man twice her age The repercussions stretch on for than twenty years as the man and his family live off the fruit of that story of illicit love and the girl grows into a woman who wins the love of a girl hellbent on revenge for these past wrongs And through the man s dangerously blind romanticism and the woman s traumatized solitude they still believe in their love for each other Blindness and trauma The poison is bubbling to the surface everywhere the characters look and yet they carry on as if there is nothing to be worried about The man sees only his reflection in the women around him and the girl twists this image into a hook to drag him down The woman unconsciously builds a shrine to the pain and sorrow of the past and the son ignores the warning signs at every turn And for what Love The love in this story is a wound easily made and nigh impossible to heal and the pleasure of it writhes in bed with the agony Is it really worth itLook around you I d say the world thinks so

Yasunari Kawabata ï 1 REVIEW

N subtly brings up issues of tradition and modernity as it explores writer Oki Toshio's reunion with a young lover from his past Otoko Ueno who is now a famous artist and recluse Ueno is now living with her protegée and a jealous. Beauty and Sadness is an understated delicate story It begins with the sad memories of Oki Toshio an eminent writer and then gradually but fiercely reveals how those long ago events have done damage to the lives of many All is revealed in an uncomplicated style and without overt judgement from the author He lets the story speak for itself Oki longs for a meeting with Ueno Otoko now famous too an artist the woman whose youth he ruined and to whom the past echoes with obligations left undone She has a young acolyte and lover Sakami Keiko who devises a devious revenge the result is biblicalOtoko is a painter in the classical Japanese tradition a style that is beautiful simple and yet sophisticated Kawabata paints this story with the same sparse brush There is just enough information to convey exactly what is meant and yet there is much blank space for the reader to fill in with their own thoughts The selfishness of Oki is shocking He had behaved horribly and then he writes a book about it It was the tragic love story of a very young girl and a man himself still young but with a wife and child only the beauty of it had been heightened to the point that it was unmarred by any moral uestioningAnd there s Fumiko Oki s wife who wanted his love to be in this book shares the guilt Because you can t write about someone you don t love someone you don t even hate All the time I m typing I keep wondering why I didn t let you go You re talking nonsense again I m serious Holding on to you was a crime I ll probably regret it the rest of my life The book makes him famous but it seems as though it is a book better left unwritten Or is it The book is deeply loved does makes Oki famous This implicates his readers in the sin by enjoying its fruits And novels within novels it turns around and accuses us tooKeiko sweet avenging angel She acts on Otoko s behalf Everyone in this story seems to want to contain the past holding it as a perfect item of sorrow or beauty Keiko shatters that precious notion and all is completedThere are many lyrical descriptions in Beauty and Sadness and if it were a painting its dominant tone would be green It is yamato e than impressionist but there s that too If there is such a thing as the Japanese mind it is glimpsed at here in Kawabata s words

    Does a novel have to be pretty? Can’t a novel give account of sadness?Could a novelist be like a painter or sculptor? I suppose even a woman's hatred is a kind of loveWhat does it take to be a great author? Does one have to condense complex ideas to form out prose which is high on acumen and demanding? Could an author write so effortlessly as if he is making no attempt at all as water falls down a hill; and yet he co

    This is gonna get hypothetical because there are film versions of Beauty and Sadness Tristesse et beauté and Utsukushisa to kanashimi Somehow I haven't seen either one of these not even when mass viewing Charlotte Rampling films in the early '00s; nor when bingeing on Japanese cinema also in the early '00s I'll rectify this in the
