A beautiful experience 7 Nov 2000
By Tom Sawyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I discovered this book thanks to Orson Scott Card, who speaks of it in "Children of mind". It is a powerful book, but hard to read. You can't feel the same way before and after havieng read this book. Oe writes with his heart, each word is a part of his mind. He's a very smart person, but seems so nice! I can't describe my true feelings about this book. The vision and explications of the "peripherical nations" is so interesting, whereas it's an uneasy subject. One advice: read this book. I'm a french reader, and I did it ("Japan, the ambiguous and myself" isn't translate in french). So you can!!!
Japan, the Ambiguous, and Myself: The Nobel Prize Speech and Other Lectures... 7 Jan 2014
By The One - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An excellent show of literary genius. The author defines how intricate society and literature are intertwined and the impact of ignoring literature's necessity. IMHO, great authors such as Kenzaburo Oe need to be studied to help obtain a better grasp of different styles of writing and what influences any author to be inspired to define his world on paper. This is modern litature at its best.... READ IT!
