Voices of the Heroic Spirits

mishimalastday382 words

Now not all the waves
of the four seas are calm,
but in the land of Yamato,
where the sun rises,
the winds are sated, men devote themselves to pleasure.
Under the virtuous rule of His Majesty
peace reigns everywhere.

personaNaoki Inose
Persona: A Biography of Yukio Mishima
Berkeley: Stone Bridge Press, 2013

Editor’s Note:

Detroit’s Downfall . . . & Japan’s

Jap930 words

The most depressing thing about Detroit’s bankruptcy isn’t the hours victims wait for police responses, sprawling neighborhoods reverting back to nature, historic buildings crumbling to ruin, or the once-vanquished problems of illiteracy and sex slavery climbing out of their graves.

The Japanese Hara Theory & its Relations to East & West, Part 2

Robert_Fludd_-_Utriusque_cosmi_Historia_-_1617-19

The relationships of microcosm and macrocosm as illustrated in Robert Fludd, Utriusque Cosmi Historia, 1619

We shall therefore only make a few references.

The Japanese Hara Theory & its Relations to East & West, Part 1

hara_r4,045 words

Part 1 of 2

On first receiving Karlfried Graf Dürckheim’s book, Hara: Man’s Terrestrial Center,[1] we had thought of writing one of the usual reviews, calling attention to it as an interesting contribution to our knowledge of the psychology, the behavior, and the “existential morphology” of the Far Eastern, or rather of the Japanese, man; Read more …

English original here

6) Mišimova literatura akce

Pojďme se nyní zaměřit na styčné body Mišimovy literatury a fašismu z literárního úhlu pohledu. Pokud bychom chtěli popsat Mišimovu tvorbu jedním slovem, dozajista bychom užili termínu literatura “akce.” Zejména jeho pozdní práce se vyznačují silnými aktivistickými tendencemi. Read more …
