    Download 草枕 Kusamakura Mobi ÌÊ Natsume sōseki 草枕 KusamakuraThis is a beautiful book which takes place a metaphorical and physical mountain climb I would consider it Soseki's interior facing work and one of incredible zen like wisdom and imagery Again do not expect laughing geisha and dancing no actors but rather the mature musings of a Japanese master writer grappling with middle age at 39 Here is an example of his irony laden highly reflective pose chosen at random I eased my law abiding buttocks down on the cushioning grass One could remain in such a place as this for five or six days without the fear of anybody making a complaint That is the beauty of Nature It is true that if forced Nature can act ruthlessness and without remorse but on the otherhand she is free from all perfidy since her attitude is the same towards everyone who harasses herThe story does include some other characters and a little bit of shadow theatre and is delightful in that melancholic Soseki kind of wayThe n

    Download 草枕 Kusamakura Mobi ÌÊ Natsume sōseki 草枕 KusamakuraI think this book is the perfect example of a “very good book that is simply not for me” The writing is beautiful the language poetic I must heap praise upon the translator as this must have been uite a challenge Every line is seemingly trying to evoke a sense of awed beauty and the translator does an admirable job and yet almost every page I wished the book would just end and let me be done with it I only finished it out of stubbornness and because it is only 146 pages and they seemed like some of the longest 146 pages I’ve ever read The book is about an artist He seeks artistic “nonemotion” to view the world like a painting though of course that only works so much for him Our unnamed narrator expresses his views of art uite freuently often goin

    Download 草枕 Kusamakura Mobi ÌÊ Natsume sōseki 草枕 KusamakuraI think this little gem of a book would be even better on a second reading One has to slow down to appreciate it And that was the hardest challenge for me It is a book about contemplation of beauty in its different forms In general it conforms to my good stereotypes or should I say ideals about Japan composing of haiku tea ceremonies exploring the colours of food buddhist priests and a mysterious beautiful woman It is stubbornly and refreshingly moves away from the plot In fact in one scene the narrator picks up a novel in English and reads it from the middle He does not need a
