Yukio Mishima - Zăpada ​de primăvară
În ​vreme ce în Europa la Belle Epoque îşi trăieşte crepusculul, în lumea închisă a vechii aristocraţii japoneze pătrund pentru prima oară provinciali neîmpovăraţi de tradiţie, pretendenţi redutabili la puterea politică şi socială. Din rândul noii elite face parte Kiyoaki, un tânăr de o delicateţe exacerbată, educat în spiritul eleganţei şi rafinamentului vremurilor de demult. Prins fără voia sa în lupta dintre vechi şi nou, precum şi în mrejele unei iubiri mistuitoare pentru frumoasa aristocrată Satoko, tânărul hotărăşte să-şi trăiască sentimentele în surdină şi să nu le încredinţeze nici măcar jurnalului în care îşi notează visele bizare ce-i bântuie somnul. Copleşit de personalitatea indescifrabilă a fetei, Kiyoaki suferă în tăcere, iar durerea lui atinge paroxismul atunci când un prinţ din familia imperială îi cere mâna lui Satoko. Sfidând legile statului şi refuzând să se supună cutumelor sociale rigide, cei doi aleg, în ciuda sorţilor potrivnici, să-şi trăiască neîngrădiţi pasiunea.

After ​botching a suicide attempt, salaryman Hanio Yamada decides to put his life up for sale in the classifieds section of a Tokyo newspaper.

Yukio Mishima - Sjömannen ​som föll i onåd hos havet
Sjömannen ​som föll i onåd hos havet är en av den kultförklarade japanske författaren Yukio Mishimas mest kompromisslösa och fängslande romaner. Det är ett psykologiskt laddat och stilistiskt fulländat verk som både oroar och engagerar. Inifrån en trång och mörk byrå observerar den trettonårige Noboru med svartsjuk blick sammansmältningen av två kroppar. Det är hans vackra mor, änkan Fusako, och den tystlåtne och väderbitne sjömannen Ryuji som funnit kärleken hos varandra. Sjömannen, vars tillvaro präglats av fantasier om ära och död till havs, blir genom förälskelsen påtagligt medveten om ett liv på land. Noboru ser detta agerande som ett förräderi - inte bara mot havet utan mot människans storhet och frihet. Tillsammans med sina kamrater bestämmer sig Noboru för att ställa Ryuji inför rätta. Sjömannen som föll i onåd hos havet är inte bara en roman om kärlek. Det är också en förtätad berättelse om obegriplig fanatism och grymhet. YUKIO MISHIMA (1925-1970) var en av Japans mest produktiva och internationellt mest uppmärksammade 1900-talsförfattare. Han skrev åtskilliga romaner, noveller och skådespel, varav många översatts till svenska. Mishima var en passionerad nationalist som sörjde Japans svunna värden. År 1970 begick han självmord genom seppuku efter en misslyckad statskupp. "Sjömannen som föll i onåd hos havet är en tät och laddad berättelse vars oroande innehåll bärs av stor språklig skönhet och stilistisk briljans." Eva Johansson, Arbetarbladet "Mishima skär bort allt oväsentligt i sin berättelse, som pulserar naken, tät, klar och grym i en exakt avskalad balans." Eva Ström, Sydsvenska Dagbladet "Sjömannen som föll i onåd hos havet är en stark berättelse, skriven på ett lysande språk." Kerstin Johansson, Helsingborgs Dagblad

Insa campionul de kendo, un idealist fara nimic din fragilitatea romantioasa a lui Kiyoaki, s-a angajat pe un drum ce se va dovedi periculos. Pana la fanatism si sacrificiu nu mai este decat un pas, usor de facut pentru un barbat impulsiv ca Isao. Va avea, de data aceasta, Honda puterea de a-si salva prietenul?
