Tacere

Editura: Polirom

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Traducere din limba japoneza de Florentina Toma Roman in curs de ecranizare in regia lui Martin Scorsese. Shusaku Endo este autorul romanelor Samuraiul si Un idiot minunat, ambele traduse in colectia „Biblioteca Polirom”. Considerat capodopera lui Endo, romanul Tacere (1966), pentru care i s-a decernat Premiul Tanizaki si care va fi ecranizat in regia lui Martin Scorsese, s-a bucurat de un succes rasunator si de aprecierile elo­gioase ale criticii. O carte despre credinta si indoiala, Tacere descrie perse­cutiile la care erau supusi crestinii in Japonia secolului al XVII-lea, in timpul shogunatului Tokugawa. Trimis sa verifice zvonurile despre apostazia mentorului sau, Cristovao Ferreira, unul dintre cei mai de seama membri ai misiunii iezuite din Japonia, preotul Sebastiao Rodrigues desco­pera in aceasta tara mai multe comunitati clandestine de crestini. Asistind neputincios la martiriul acestora, Rodrigues isi vede propria credinta pusa la incercare si incepe sa se indoiasca de un Dumnezeu care raspunde la suferintele credinciosilor sai doar printr-o tacere indi­ferenta. Vindut la rindul lui autoritatilor, supus la torturi cumplite si silit sa se ...

Un idiot minunat

Editura: Polirom

Anul aparitiei: 2004

Traducere din limba japoneza si note de Angela Hondru „Un idiot minunat” prezinta lupta morala si spirituala a protagonistului, Gaston Bonaparte, sosit in Japonia cu o misiune speciala, misiune care ni se reveleaza abia la sfirsit. Stiindu-l descendent al imparatului Napoleon, gazdele sale, Takamori si Tomoe, fac pregatiri speciale, surprinse cu mult umor, stiindu-se cit de greu este acceptat un strain intr-un camin traditional japonez. Atras de lumea interlopa a societatii japoneze (gangsteri, prostituate, ucigasi), Gaston ne poarta prin zonele saracacioase si lugubre din Tokyo, cu toate stradaniile gazdelor sale de a-i arata numai fateta frumoasa a orasului. „«Un idiot minunat» este o extraordinara parodie nu doar a occidentului ajuns intr-o lume care-i este complet straina, dar si a obiceiurilor si culturii japoneze.” (The Literary Supplement)

Scandalul

Editura: Polirom

Anul aparitiei: 2009

Traducere din limba japoneza si note de Andreea Sion Shusaku Endo este autorul bestsellerului international Tacere, roman in curs de ecranizare in regia lui Martin Scorsese. Scandalul (1986) este un roman care dezvaluie, intr-o maniera lucida si necrutatoare, temerile si obsesiile unui scriitor ajuns la o virsta inaintata, explorind granita fragila care desparte studiul gesturilor violente si depravate de comiterea lor efectiva. La cei saizeci si cinci de ani ai lui, Suguro este apreciat de cititori, critici si colegi de breasla, desi exista voci care ii ironizeaza rigoarea morala si reticenta in privinta problemelor sexuale. Totul pare a indica faptul ca il asteapta o batrinete linistita alaturi de sotia sa, dar acest scenariu se spulbera in clipa in care o femeie il acuza ca viata pe care o duce contrazice flagrant premisele pe care se intemeiaza scrierile sale, denuntindu-l drept un client asiduu al bordelurilor si sex-shopurilor din Tokyo. Suguro, amenintat de un ziarist razbunator cu declansarea unui adevarat scandal in presa, este nevoit sa dezlege misterul acestei acuzatii si descopera astfel existenta unui dublu al sau, un "geaman malefic" cu inclinatii ...

Anul aparitiei: 1992

The Sea and Poison was the first Japanese book to confront the problem of individual responsibility in wartime, painting a searing picture of the human race's capacity for inhumanity. At the outset of this powerful story we find a Doctor Suguro in a backwater of modern-day Tokyo practicing expert medicine in a dingy office. He is haunted by his past experience and it is that past which the novel unfolds. During the war Dr. Suguro serves his internship in a hospital where the senior staff is more interested in personal career-building than in healing. He is induced to assist in a horrifying vivisection of a POW. "What is it that gets you," one of his colleagues asks. "Killing that prisoner? The conscience of man, is that it?"

Kiku's Prayer

Editura: COLUMBIA UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 2013

Kiku's Prayer is told through the eyes of Kiku, a self-assured young woman from a rural Japanese village who falls in love with Seikichi, a devoted Catholic man. Practicing a faith still banned by the government, Seikichi is imprisoned but refuses to recant under torture. Kiku's efforts to reconcile her feelings for Seikichi's religion with the sacrifices she makes to free him mirror the painful, conflicting choices Japan faced as a result of exposure to modernity and the West. Seikichi's persecution exemplifies Japan's insecurities, and Kiku's tortured yet determined spirit represents the nation's resilient soul. Set in the turbulent years of the transition from the shogunate to the Meiji Restoration, Kiku's Prayer embodies themes central to Endo Shusaku's work, including religion, modernization, and the endurance of the human spirit. Yet this novel is much more than a historical allegory. It acutely renders one woman's troubled encounter with passion and spirituality at a transitional time in her life and in the history of her people. A renowned twentieth-century Japanese author, Endo wrote from the perspective of being both Japanese and Catholic. His work is often compared with ...

Foreign Studies

Editura: PETER OWEN LTD

Anul aparitiei: 2009

In the early 1950s, Shusaku Endo spent several years as an exchange student studying in Paris. Around him existentialism, Sartre, and Beckett were making the city the literary and philosophical capital of the world. But for Endo, the experience was deeply alienating, and he came away infected with tuberculosis, his studies incomplete, and having convinced himself that there could be no cultural commerce between East and West. Foreign Studies consists of three linked narratives exploring this theme. The first part, "A Summer in Rouen," concerns Kudo, a Japanese student invited to France in the 1950s. It is a lucent snapshot of a young man who feels adrift in a Western country. The second part, "Araki Thomas," sees Endo on familiar territory as he tells of an apostate Japanese Catholic who has visited 17th-century Rome. "And You, Too," the third part, is the story of Tanaka, a Japanese scholar of French literature who visits France in the 1960s to research the life and work of the Marquis de Sade.

Suguro is an eminent Catholic novelist who is about to receive a major literary award. When a drunk woman he has never met before approaches him at the award ceremony, claiming she knows him well from his regular visits to Tokyo's red-light district, he assumes she must surely be mistaken. But with a scurrilous press campaign damaging Suguro's reputation, his sleazy doppelganger appears more and more, as if deliberately trying to discredit him. He is sighted touring the love hotels and brothels of Shinjuku; a leering portrait of him appears in an exhibition--and Suguro is forced to undertake a journey into Tokyo's seedy heart in order to discover the dreadful truth.

The story reaches a terrible climax when Aiko, now a middle-aged cancer-sufferer, is admitted to the hospital and Ozu leads the way in experimenting on her with dangerous drugs. "
