In a suburb of Yokohama during the post-war years, the 13-year-old orphan Noboru joins a gang of sociopaths who despise humanity's futility, especially his parents, and then kill and dissect a cat to practice his absolute detachment.

On a summer night, Noboru's westernized mother, Fusako, stays with sailor Ryuji, whose independence the boy admires. But when he exchanges the sailor's glory for domesticity by marrying Fusako, the gang begins to punish what they see as their fall from grace.

This short and frightening story about masculinity shows the male desire for greatness, for an ecstasy of life, which Ryūji hopes can be achieved in death.

Mishima explores primordial male fears and links Japan's loss of status under the US occupation to the emasculating strength of marriage and the furious impotence of youth. ( )

Disturbing and dreary, Yukio Mishima’s The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea throbs with anger. As turbulent as the waves that hit the rock by a cliff in a stormy night, every slap of seawater intensifies, the debris fall then drown, until it calms with a brief gentleness only to pick up again.

Thirteen-year old Noburo is a member of a teen gang driven by radical nihilistic convictions. Cold-blooded acts of violence, unending brain conditioning by peers in competitive and complicit huddles, and almost an irrationally intense hatred are intensified by an arrival of an intruder in his seemingly ordinary home life. This intruder is a sailor who ultimately falls in love with Noburo’s widowed mother. As the months come and go and the seasons change, what seems to be an Oedipal element that rusts Noburo’s relationship with both his mother and her lover, a deeper internal revolt against this relationship stems from the problematic structure and system of society; school as one of its smallest unit is an example of confining children, stifling their freedom, disciplining them akin to robots. When they turn into adults they lose the essence of innocence, imagination, and continue to let themselves be eaten by this system; blindly; willingly; and this, unfortunately emanates from his mother’s lover. The gang’s convictions then becomes more rigid and there may only be one solution.

I don’t really buy the almost excessive, subjectively unreasonable brutality of this novel most particularly with animals. The teenagers can be irritating and whiny which of course is how most of them are in real life but I at least expected a strong introspection to accompany their convictions. Beyond this flaw, there is an interesting bit about Japanese juvenile laws that turn some tables around. If not for a certain paragraph I would have rated this lower and it was, I think, the saving grace of Mishima’s too bitter and acidic The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea: “There is no such thing as a good father because the role itself is bad. Strict fathers, soft fathers, nice moderate fathers—one's as bad as another. They stand in the way of our progress while they try to burden us with their inferiority complexes, and their unrealized aspirations, and their resentments, and their ideals, and the weaknesses they've never told anyone about, and their sins, and their sweeter-than-honey dreams, and the maxims they've never had the courage to live by—they'd like to unload all that silly crap on us, all of it!“

I look forward to reading more of his works particularly Forbidden Colours. And after a lot of reading, he also had an intriguing life and controversial death that made this novel all the more horrifying. ( )

> [Résumé] La Sympathie constitue un système où s'articulent mythe fondateur, théorie et témoignage sensible; au delà des restrictions qui définissent le champ relationnel de la psychanalyse mises à la mode dans les années 60, la façon d'être avec l'Autre, la 'relation', retrouve avec la Sympathie tout son impact.
Le chemin ici proposé constitue une 'mise en route' à partir de laquelle chacun pourra dégager son mode propre.

some sort of slow crescendo to a jolting drop into nothing

This author and novella came to my via the Bowie 100 Books List and was a definite hit for me.

A young Japanese boy is confused when his widowed mother takes up with a sailor on a couple of days leave in port, but enchanted with boats and the sea this confusion turns to wonderment and idealisation by the time the man returns to sea. When the sailor returns to the boy's mother after six months away at sea, circumstances change and he quickly falls from the pedestal the boy had precariously placed him on. With this fall from grace comes terrible consequences as the boy summons the savage group of boys he is part of for retribution.

As with many Japanese novels, there is a wonderful sense of dark foreboding and yet space and spareness in Mishima's writing. Time feels slowed down and the atmosphere is electric, with what is unsaid feeling almost more compelling than what is said, and the extremes of nature - especially the oppressive heat of the summer section - adding to the intoxicating atmosphere.

I would have loved for this short novella to have taken us a little further into the story, yet also respect the point at which Mishima leaves the tale with the reader.

Recommended if you enjoy Japanese literature, but warning - it contains vivid description of animal cruelty in one part, so this Lord of the Flies flavour of story may not be for everyone.

4 stars - a wonderfully dark and evocative tale ( )

"Both novels have their brilliant moments, and both fall short of sustained brilliance."
