    ePUB 細雪 Sasameyuki Epub Ê ✓ bvlive.co.uk 細雪 ebok, sasameyuki pdf, 細雪 Sasameyuki KindleThe yearly peregrination to the natural spectacle of the cherry blossoming in Kyoto is a millenary tradition in Japan The symbolism attached to that ritual renders the transience of beauty The constant collision between the explosion of exuberant vitality and the withering that precedes the inevitable defoliation marks the unrelenting passage of time and the virtuous circle of life rekindled from the ashesIt’s through the annual expeditions that The Makioka Sisters take to witness such a natural display that the history of a generation that the end of an era and the beginning of borrowed almost imposed modernity is presented in detailed scenes of domestic life in a traditional Japanese familyEvoking t

    ePUB 細雪 Sasameyuki Epub Ê ✓ bvlive.co.uk 細雪 ebok, sasameyuki pdf, 細雪 Sasameyuki KindleIt's been such a long time since I've read a translation of the Japanese language I had completely forgotten how calm and subtle the prose is how patient you have to be in probing it It's true that enough happens on the surface to make for a lengthy story but it is the hidden depths that make the story engagingMost of the story is occupied with the lives of the Makioka sisters focusing on the third sister who even at her advanced age has not yet been married The book starts with discussion of yet another possible husband view spoilerand ends with the long awaited marriage hide spoiler

    ePUB 細雪 Sasameyuki Epub Ê ✓ bvlive.co.uk 細雪 ebok, sasameyuki pdf, 細雪 Sasameyuki KindleI really wanted and fully expected to love this book I loved Tanizaki's Naomi but for reasons that I can't properly express I never found myself engrossed in this as I'd hoped to be I'd get into for a bit get bored put it down for a few weeks and then pick it up againI can however understand why this book is so well regarded and I really keep vacillating on how to rate it Set in Japan it's an intimate look at a family of four sisters their husbands lovers or lack thereof and immediate family and friends It's a book that deals primarily with the mundane The last sentence of the book and this isn't revealing anything is about one of the character's diarrheaI have only read one other Tanizaki book but I gather that he freuently deals with obsession and this book is obsessively mundane In small doses it's truly stunning but after
