As the dramatic climax of The Sea of Fertility 'The Decay of the Angel' brings together the dominant themes of the three previous novels the meaning and decay of Japan's courtly tradition and samurai ideal; the essence and value of Buddhist philoso. This is the fourth and final volume in Mishima s tetralogy The Sea of Fertility Class divisions and changing values in Japan due to western influence are major themes Another theme all the way through the series is reincarnation In Decay of the Angel the reincarnated spirit is an orphan He has a job helping ships in port navigate to their docks Obviously it was pre ordained that Honda finds him since he encounters him by simply wandering around the port Honda the lawyer who is another main character through the four volumes He is now 76 years old but he adopts the young boy He does this even though if the pattern holds he knows the boy will die at age 20 A sub theme tied in with the reincarnation is how Honda originally an associate justice in the national courts is initially all into rationalism and logic But when he meets the young boy gang leader in volume two Runaway Horses he notices three moles on his body identical to his deceased friend from years ago Despite his rationality he comes to believe the young boy is his old friend reincarnatedBut unlike in the other volumes the boy in The Decay of the Angel sets out to do evil thus the decay in the title I vow it that when I am twenty I will cast Father into hell I must start making plans The boy is attached to an ugly obese mentally ill young woman whom he eventually marries His evil starts out small getting his tutor dismissed but graduates to where he terrorizes his adoptive father by striking him with a poker He makes his four maids his mistressesAlthough you can pick up most of the back story in context it really helps to have to have read the whole series in seuence For those who want to read this book but have not read the preceding volumes here are brief summaries for each bookSpoiler for the first volume Spring Snow view spoilerThe plot revolves around a love story between a boy and the daughter of the neighboring household They have known each other all their lives and she has loved him since they were children But his feelings toward her are on again off again he mistreats her and pretends he doesn t care for her Finally she gives up on him and becomes engaged to a son of a noble family actually a member of the Emperor s household At this point she s 21 he s 19 and after the engagement has been approved by the Emperor himself finally he decides he loves her and begins to pursue her They begin a sexual relationship and she becomes pregnant If word of any of this gets out it would be the euivalent of a national scandal When the boy s father learns what is going on after spending his whole life ass kissing the emperor and the nobles to say he is apoplectic is putting it mildly Never having lifted a hand to his son before he beats him with a pool cue She enters a convent and the son later dies of a disease hide spoiler
