One Comment to Гласът на планината

  1. Yasunari Kawabata was a Japanese short story writer and novelist whose spare, lyrical, subtly shaded prose works won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1968, the first Japanese author to receive the award His works have enjoyed broad international appeal and are still widely read.Nobel Lecture 1968nobelprize nobel_prize

  2. A painfully beautiful book Like the other works by Kawabata I ve read, it is not so strictly concerned with plot and action Instead this is a novel which works slowly and quietly, with description of gesture and emotions, or subtle changes in the weather or in conversation.It centers around an older man, Shingo, who is distant to his wife and sons There is a tremendous magnitude of emotion told here, but with the bare minimum of words, even just fragments of sentences We see the weather pass as [...]


  3. It s been a while since I ve written any reviews, for I always kept postponing them for one reason or another however the book The Sound of the Mountain has pushed me so hard to overturn this, for it was so compelling, that s why I made an attempt futile though to review or rather to write something this little gem in Japanese literature, all these things may probably give an impression perhaps appropriate though that it s not like returning back to some arena I enjoy Well, let s try to write so [...]


  4. I started reading The Sound of the Mountain late at night all alone in my bedroom It kinda scared the crap out of me in the oppressive lonely way I get when I think too much about what other people want from other people Is it always going to be that way Trying too hard Making up stories is real The first half I read this lonely way The second half I read at the beach my first beach read of 2011 I think it made it a different experience for me to be read that way, where I didn t know anyone It [...]


  5. As the last smell of spring faded in a flowery envelope at a nearby bin, it was time to bid adieu to Shingo Ogata I wanted to escape from his loneliness, as if it was mine to hold to the prospects of designing uncharted ideas somehow enticed me than Mr Ogata Unaware of my goodbyes, Shingo sat in his veranda, greatly immersed in a probability of a possible quarrel between the sparrows and the buntings nestled in the majestic gingko tree All he heard was the peculiar yet familiar roars of the mou [...]


  6. Kawabata uses Ogata Shingo as his narrator and prime character to tell the story of a 62 year old man immersed in unhappiness, who feels death closing in on him Shingo lives with his wife, Yasuko the plain sister of the beautiful woman who was, in his youth, his one true love his son, Shuichi who ignores his wife for his mistress and resentful daughter whose own marriage has failed He has long ceased to love Yasuko, highly regarding the relationship with his young and innocent daughter in law, [...]


  7. Seemingly nothing is happening Shingo Ogata goes to his office , on his way back does shopping, for a while thinking about the girl who used to work for him but now apparently forgot her name Nothing special.Ordinary life.But something s happened Shingo heard a sound of mountain and its voice awaked in him old memories.Its sound symbolizes impending death.Shingo takes us then on a nostalgic journey to the past,to the world of memories and unfulfilled dreams.Painfully aware of loss so many things [...]


  8. The theme of death permeates this lyrical and poetic book It is as if the author is preparing himself for his own demise, especially running in tandem with another theme, that of suicide And that Kawabata is in fact searching for a way in which to make that ultimate separation from life as we know it on this planet of ours Thus I was not at all surprised to read that Kawabata committed suicide in 1972.There are distinct pros and cons to this work and regrettably the latter prevail.The positive p [...]


  9. The sound stopped, and he was suddenly afraid A chill passed over him, as if he had been notified that death was approaching He wanted to question himself, calmly and deliberately, to ask whether it had been the sound of the wind, the sound of the sea, or a sound in his ears But he had heard no such sound, he was sure He had heard the mountain.This is an intricate, poetic, beautiful novel which my clumsy review cannot do justice to It is highly sensory and satiates all the five senses I m apprec [...]


  10. The quiet prose and acutely calculated distance, set and carried the first part of this book The micrometers of measures opened a precise distance allowing the reader, inviting the reader, to slip within During the second half the narrator, laid there as an obstacle, was sent on an ill fated mission to rev up events Becoming pesky and sliding into a troublesome invasiveness Possibly the contrast accents it or is it intended and I have missed its calling A sixty two year old man, considered an o [...]


  11. I read this book shortly after finishing Kazuo Ishiguro s An Artist of the Floating World Both books cover similar ground a man in the twilight of his years reflecting on his past I was going to write a review about how the book deals with old age and coming to terms with our life, about how Kawabata writes luminous prose with each chapter a beautiful image fading into the next But then I read a comment by Ishiguro He said he didn t get Kawabata because he was too plotless, too Japanese And this [...]

  14. I am currently caught in a Kawabata spell WilliamI put a list of four Kawabata books into a review and I bought them all I will take a Kawabata a break because I don t want to overindulge but the urge is strong to go on the fourth.Kawabata writes ambience He writes inner thoughts He writes of outer change and reaction Often little is outwardly happening but the world of change swirls around the reader who is caught up in the web Kawabata has so carefully created The reader cannot escape, cannot [...]




  15. Shingo is a, self described, office worker in his sixties He loves the picturesque, is also committed to the welfare of his family In other words, a very ordinary man who one might argue has been made sentimental with age.Kawabata however tells a beautiful story through this ordinary character, and through his family Of a paterfamilias who looks out for his children and grandchildren, who finds beauty in puppies, trees, birds, flowers and people.An observation I made in the book is the contrast [...]


  16. Recently, after about a year of constant badgering, I convinced a friend of mine to read one of my favorite novels, To the Lighthouse I figured that once he picked it up, it would need no selling, Woolf is such an innovative novelist that I could see no way anyone could not fall in love with its lyrical stream of consciousness style It turns out I was wrong He hated it He told me he was bored the whole way through, called the book plotless, and decided that we have very different tastes I was s [...]

  18. The sound of the mountain was written in 1954 by one of the greatest modern Japanese novelists I m sorry about my 2 star review, I see the quality of this work, but what I am expressing here is purely how much I liked the book and the reading experience Not much at all, that is To put it in the simplest terms, I found this book incredibly boring I couldn t care less I do realize that if I was a Japanese person, living in the 50s, I would perceive this book as something totally different, and, ho [...]



  19. I think that the people who make Mad Men should go to Japan and make The Sound of the Mountain TV series Everyone would love it Water coolers across America whould be chocker It would be similar to Tokyo Story , but less preachy about old people and with much bigger dramas gangster son in law What a dream.


  20. There are some books you just sit and read with a sense of wonderment It is, perhaps, Kawabata s masterpiece.


  21. 3.75 starsReading this novel by Yasunari Kawabata, I think, is within its reader s capability since there are 16 chapters, each having its title from Chapter 1 The Sound of the Mountain, Chapter 2 The Wings of the Locust, Chapter 3 A Blaze of Clouds, to Chapter 16 Fish in Autumn Moreover, in each chapter, its content s divided into mini chapters denoted by numbers, that is, No 1 5 for Chapter 1, No 1 4 for Chapter 2, No 1 3 for Chapter 3 No 1 5 in Chapter 16 In effect, this kind of varied sectio [...]


  22. Una novela extra a, de gran fuerza y belleza Uno pensar a que la vida de una familia de la peque a burgues a japonesa de la postguerra mundial, no revestir a demasiado inter s al lector De hecho, durante casi toda la novela se tiene la sensaci n de que no pasa nada, la historia no se mueve, sino que se congela en reflexiones y miradas Sin embargo, la sutileza de Kawabata en los peque os detalles, la preciosa concisi n de sus oraciones, la suave descripci n de estados emocionales y s mbolos de to [...]


  23. This book is like a tea ceremony where simple acts simply and attentively done have both meaning in and of themselves and also suggest a greater meaning Or imagine taking a haiku and magically transforming it into a novel that still elicits in the reader the haiku s final ahh Shingo, sixty years old lives with his wife, his son and daughter in law Later his daughter, abandoned, by her husband comes to live with them Told from Shingo s perspective, this is the story of Shingo s thoughts and mixed [...]


  24. Ketika akhirnya selesai membaca, kalimat yang saya ucapkan adalah Aw, it s pretty.Saya cuma ingin berkeluh kesah soal subjudul yang ditulis Gelora Cinta Usia Senja dan ringkasan di cover belakang yang berkesan murahan soal menantunya yang mengambil langkah berani setelah tahu perselingkuhan suaminya Menurut saya, buku ini sama sekali bukan tentang itu Ini hanya kisah seorang Shingo Ogata dan keluarga, serta orang orang di sekitarnya Tentang apa dan asumsi yang ada di pikiran mereka.Membacanya ha [...]




  25. I ve been racking my brain trying to come up with a single western author who relys as heavily on nuance and understatement as Yasunari Kawabata Though not my favourite, The Sound of the Mountain is the most delicately rendered of the 4 Kawabata novels I ve read so far She suggested that they meet at the Shinjuku Garden Shingo laughed, somewhat disconcerted at this proposed rendezvous.Kikuko seemed to think that she had hit upon a remarkably good idea The green will bring you to life The Shinjuk [...]


  26. Setiap habis baca novel jepang itu rasanya pengen menghela napas panjang nan puwaaaassss Hampir setiap penulis jepang setidaknya yang saya baca punya pola retrospeksi yang kalem dan bisa dibilang flat dari awal sampai akhir, tapi sangat reflektif Ah, keren lah.Review lengkap menyusul.
