Deadly Dialectics | Sex, Violence, and Nihilism in the World of Yukio Mishima [Japan Library]

(Book #ID 108177)

Published by Japan Library 35 The Crescent, Sandgate, Folkestone First Edition 1994. 1994.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original burgundy cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine. 8vo. 9½'' x 6''. Contains 225 pp with monochrome photograph of Yukio Mishima who is considered one of the most important Japanese authors of the 20th century. He was considered for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968, but the award went to his countryman and benefactor Yasunari Kawabata. Although Mishima's main literary ambition was to write philosophical novels in the tradition of Goethe and Thomas Mann, Deadly Dialectics is the first critical study to take this objective seriously: it also provides the first adequate account of Mishima's intellectual background and characteristic modes of thought and it is the first book to show the intimate and integral relation between his thought and his psychology and militant politics - or, more specifically, between his nihilism, his sexuality and his propensity to violence. On November 25, 1970, Mishima and four members of his militia entered a military base in central Tokyo, took its commandant hostage, and tried to inspire the Japan Self-Defense Forces to rise up and overthrow Japan's 1947 Constitution, which he called 'a constitution of defeat'. When his attempt failed, he committed seppuku (suicide). Fine condition book in Fine condition dust wrapper, unused and unopened new book. We carry this book in stock for immediate dispatch.
