    About "Jun'ichirō Tanizaki"

    1. Jun'ichirō Tanizaki

      Jun ichiro Tanizaki was a Japanese author, one of the major writers of modern Japanese literature, and perhaps the most popular Japanese novelist after Natsume S seki Some of his works present a rather shocking world of sexuality and destructive erotic obsessions others, less sensational, subtly portray the dynamics of family life in the context of the rapid changes in 20th century Japanese society Frequently his stories are narrated in the context of a search for cultural identity in which constructions of the West and Japanese tradition are juxtaposed The results are complex, ironic, demure, and provocative.


    1. Una disección espléndida del placer de comer. Lástima de tu machismo incurable, Tanizaki.Una reseña, (atención, contiene spoiler), aquí: pandora-magazine/orien

    2. The Children: Weird. Delicate sadistic aristocratic boy invents weird games for older boys. There's a scene where one boy starts nibbling at the others. A sister gets involved in other games. There's a horrible scene with mochi and snot. Gag.The Secret: Jaded man gets new kicks dressing as a woman.The Two Acolytes: Living in a mountain monastery, they've never seen a woman and are kind of interested.The Gourmet Club: Jaded men have an eating club. They're after new tastes and experiences. Could [...]

    3. Otro relato deliciosamente perverso de Tanizaki. La búsqueda de nuevos placeres a cualquier precio.Gran edición de Gallo Nero: la traducción, las ilustraciones y la calidad del papel son excelentes.

    4. read somewhere, the reputation of japanese authors are usually made through their short stories- for me this is definitely the case for tanizaki. the novels read have a queasy effect, given the central character is usually a masochistic, frustratingly childish, obsessed man. this is easier to take in small doses. this is consistent throughout his career, demonstrated also in the weird stories here. my favorite, 'the two acolytes', is also here the least typical, most philosophical, most moving, [...]

    5. Passion and obsession. When one ends, the other begins. One needs to tread very carefully when decided to walk on this road.Manganese peroxide. Hillarious. I think he wrote the whole story just to be able to write the word "manganese peroxide". Just like when I was fascinated with the phrase "attoiumani", I tried to stick it to every conversation.I have to agree with John Updike. The stories made me hold my breath throughout, and the ending didn't let me fully exhale still.

    6. Divertida, ácida, crítica Me gustaría haber visto la reacción de los lectores de la época cuando se publicó esta obra. Imagináis un club de varios japoneses ilustres, pero no hablan de literatura y filosofía, sino que comen. El protagonista, el Conde G, es un obsesionado por la comida (la buena) y esto le lleva a descubrir lugares y gente de lo más extravagante. La edición de Gallo Nero, además, es una delicia.

    7. This collection of short stories are mostly from early in Tanizaki's career and show a mastery developed early in life.The work is brilliant, erotic and disturbing. It teeters on the edge but never quite makes it to indecency (a word I seldom use) as it skitters around almost S&M play (no sex) involving children, food eroticism and food fetishes. Not for the youngsters, but highly recommended.

    8. Interesantísimo ejercicio de estilo. Sensorial, delicado y a la vez perverso y malvado. Sin embargo, se antoja corto, te deja con ganas de más. Y eso, tanto en la comida, como en la buena literatura, se hace difícil de perdonar.

    9. THE CHILDREN:Hagiwara Eichan (the narrator, age 10), his lonely, pampered classmate Hanawa Shinichi, classmate's older sister Mitsuko, and Senkichi (a bully, slightly older) begin playing together in the rich family's house. What ensues makes me wonder how they ever survived to adulthoodE SECRET:This fellow with ennui rents a room in a monastery and sneaks out his window every night. He rediscovers a woman who had been in love with him a few years ago. Both keep where they live a secret. Both lo [...]

    10. Personajul principal din Secretul care la început doar cochetează cu ideea de a se îmbrăca în femeie și apoi își pune planul în aplicare, reîntâlnindu-și însă o cucerire mai veche, trăiește extazul fascinației față de mister, față de viețile secrete, față de pasiunile cu parfum de fărădelege. Bizarul filosof al filmului din Povestea domnului Aozuka, a cărui viață se centrează în jurul imaginii unei simple actrițe, este de fapt posedat de un voyeurism al perfecțiu [...]

    11. The most recent posthumus collection from this Japanese author whose subjects span early-Westernization and more recent time periods, is startling, revealing, and tickles and senses. I recommend anything by Tanizaki, especially {book: They Key],A Cat, A Man, and Two Women.

    12. One of my newest favorite authors, and surprisingly I found the book at St. Vincent de Paul in Port Washington. Reminiscent of Poe, Huysmans and Bataille.

    13. No solo es un libro que da mucho hambre, sino que la edición es preciosa, y es una bonita reflexión sobre hasta dónde estamos dispuestos a llegar para lograr aquello que nos proporciona placer.
