Tokyo, 1912. The closed world of the ancient aristocracy is being breached for the first time by outsiders - rich provincial families, a new and powerful political and social elite. Kiyoaki has been raised among the elegant Ayakura family - members of the waning aristocracy - but he is not one of them. Coming of age, he is caught up in the tensions between old and new, and his feelings for the exquisite, spirited Sakoto, observed from the sidelines by his devoted friend Honda. When Sakoto is engaged to a royal prince, Kiyoaki realises the magnitude of his passion

Runaway horses by Yukio Mishima( Book )

97 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yukio Mishima's Runaway Horses is the second novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. Again we encounter Shigekuni Honda, who narrates this epic tale of what he believes are the successive reincarnations of his childhood friend Kiyoaki Matsugae. In 1932, Shigekuni Honda has become a judge in Osaka. Convinced that a young rightist revolutionary, Isao, is the reincarnation of his friend Kiyoaki, Honda commits himself to saving the youth from an untimely death. Isao, driven to patriotic fanaticism by a father who instilled in him the ethos of the ancient samurai, organizes a violent plot against the new industrialists who he believes are usurping the Emperor's rightful power and threatening the very integrity of the nation. Runaway Horses is the chronicle of a conspiracy -- a novel about the roots and nature of Japanese fanaticism in the years that led to war." -- Publisher's description

The decay of the angel by Yukio Mishima( Book )

117 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yukio Mishima's The Decay of the Angel is the final novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. It is the last installment of Shigekuni Honda's pursuit of the successive reincarnations of his childhood friend Kiyoaki Matsugae. It is the late 1960s and Honda, now an aged and wealthy man, once more encounters a person he believes to be a reincarnation of his friend, Kiyoaki -- this time restored to life as a teenage orphan, Tōru. Adopting the boy as his heir, Honda quickly finds that Tōru is a force to be reckoned with. The final novel of this celebrated tetralogy weaves together the dominant themes of the previous three novels in the series: the decay of Japan's courtly tradition; the essence and value of Buddhist philosophy and aesthetics; and, underlying all, Mishima's apocalyptic vision of the modern era."--Publisher's description

The way of the samurai : Yukio Mishima on Hagakure in modern life by Yukio Mishima( Book )

54 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1967, three years before Yukio Mishima's famed ritual suicide, Hagakure, the teachings of a samurai called Yamamoto (1659-1719), became a sort of samurai bible and was, seemingly, the most influential book in Mishima's life. Yamamoto's central perception is contained in the sentence "I found that the way of the samurai is death." He stresses that the samurai must perfect his resolution to die for his lord at any moment, and gives much advice on how he must conduct himself, even down to dealing with servants or stifling a yawn. He also laments, like Mishima after him, the decadence of his times - by which he means the predominance of the chrysanthemum over the sword. This book provides fascinating insights not only into the samurai code, but also into the life and death of Mishima. -- Back cover
