EBOOK Ú 春の雪 Haru no Yuki ä Yukio Mishima

春の雪 Haru no Yuki À Nd confused by his feelings for the exuisite spirited Sakoto When Sakoto is engaged to a royal prince Kiyoaki realises the magnitude of his passionCover illustration Anne Crone based on Evening Snow by Ando Hiroshige A book can be either of two things a key to open locked doors which lead to uniue experiences we have not encountered or are impossible for us to attain; while the other is a mirror to show us who we are or remind us of ourselves and the past we have not forgotten One stirs excitement the other nostalgia This time it took the shape of the latter The book served as a mirror to me reminding me of a befuddled young man blind to the workings of his heart prone to exaggerating the simple nuances in the actions of a woman devoted to him a woman he doubted because of childish fears But I am not here to talk of myself I am here because the pain it stirred in me forces me to writeKiyoaki a beautiful yet lethargic young man is at odds with his eually beautiful childhood friend Satoko An inexperienced boy when it comes to the desire inside him he constantly misinterprets and confuses the actions of the young woman who is thoroughly taken with him His melancholy attitude doesn’t help his cause and he loathes balefully in the estranged pool of his own work That is until he learns of Satoko’s engagement with a prince thus the object of his hatred and bewilderment is snatched from him suddenly out of reach It is such a curious thing that when something we have ignored for so long is suddenly unavailable to us we find it infinitely desirable The fickle human heart with its itinerant impulses shifts its gear and so the idea of unattainability forces us to acknowledge the taken for granted the sudden spotlight makes the dull suddenly novel And it is in this manner that young Kiyoaki realizes the gravity of his passion for Satoko Doomed from the very start an affair begins between the childhood friends In this shared consciousness of tragedy their love flourishes At the very core of this tragic romance Spring Snow serves as Yukio Mishima’s statement against elegance Being a military man of action he felt that the Japanese strayed from the righteous way of the Samurai and have alarmingly become slaves of pleasure smitten with exterior beauty apathetic to the real world too taken by the West too modern He envisioned a traditional Japan with its graceful simplicity austere values and unceasing nationalism and love for the Emperor The character Kiyoaki is a warning to the people of Japan a cautionary tale to show the rottenness that elegance is bound to instill in the indolent souls of its time This very idea is what prompted Mishima to stage a coup d’état in 1970 to restore power to the Emperor But he failed and thus committed ritual seppuku However before his death he was able to complete his tetralogy the Sea of Fertility which features Spring Snow as the first of four books With this in mind I believe it to be uite irresponsible to fully interpret an incomplete picture To understand his real intentions I have to complete the journey by reading the other three works Yet as a standalone it is rather fascinating to see something that was meant to alarm instead take one’s breath away with sheer elegance And so by embodying the object of his scorn Mishima ironically succeeds in mirroring the very relationship of Kiyoaki and Satoko “The path we’re taking is not a road Kiyo it’s a pier and it ends someplace where the sea begins”All at once subtle tender and painful this novel manages to evoke a somber tinge of passion in the otherwise luscious backdrop of Taisho Japan Indeed like spring snow a furtive loveliness envelops the landscape of its pages but intertwined with this beauty is a faint cry of desolation a uiet deadliness that can only enhance its icy elegance EBOOK Ú 春の雪 Haru no Yuki ä Yukio Mishima
