The life and death of Yukio Mishima by Henry Scott-Stokes( Book )

66 editions published between 1974 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On November 25, 1970, Yukio Mishima, easily the most famous writer of his generation in Japan, committed seppuku at a military headquarters in Tokyo. At the age of forty-five, Mishima brushed away wealth and an international literary reputation - Nobel laureate Yasunari Kawabata had proclaimed that "a writer of Mishima's caliber appears only once every two or three hundred years" - in a highly public and gruesome suicide for which, it seemed, he had been preparing for much of his life." "Henry Scott Stokes's The Life and Death of Yukio Mishima is an accomplished account of Mishima's life, describing his strange, isolated childhood and his youthful and meteoric ascent to literary fame. Scott Stokes also depicts Mishima's increasing nihilism as well as the militaristic fanaticism that manifested itself in his private army, the Tatenoikai." "The author, who knew Mishima in his final years, has written a new epilogue for this revised edition of his 1974 biography. The Life and Death of Yukio Mishima is not only a useful and penetrating explication of a great writer's work but also a deeply personal portrait of an extraordinarily complicated man."--BOOK JACKET

25 novembre 1970, Quartier generale della base militare di Ichigaya, a Tokyo. Yukio Mishima - uno dei più importanti scrittori e intellettuali giapponesi del '900 - si uccide facendo seppuku, il tradizionale suicidio per sventramento. Pochi minuti prima, con l'aiuto di quattro membri del Tatenokai (l'associazione paramilitare da lui fondata nel 1968), aveva preso in ostaggio il generale a capo della guarnigione, e aveva incitato inutilmente i soldati dello Jietai (le Forze armate di autodifesa) alla ribellione contro la progressiva "occidentalizzazione " della nazione nipponica, una ribellione che aveva come scopo la restaurazione dell'autorità imperiale e della potenza militare giapponese. Henry Scott Stokes, inviato del "Times" a Tòkyo e amico intimo di Mishima, fu l'unico occidentale a poter assistere alle varie fasi del processo che ne seguì, ed è da questo avvenimento che il giornalista prende spunto per narrarci la vita di un personaggio straordinario. Romanziere, saggista, autore teatrale, attore e regista, cultore di arti marziali e di body building, Mishima è stato un artista affascinante e discusso (anche a causa della sua malcelata omosessualità), nonché lo scrittore giapponese più conosciuto e tradotto in Occidente. Scott Stokes lo racconta amalgamando le numerose esperienze vissute con lui, le testimonianze raccolte direttamente da familiari, colleghi e amici, e la disamina, lucida e puntuale, delle opere più importanti
