About this product
- DescriptionIn the face of the misery in his homeland, the artist Masuji O was unwilling to devote his art solely to the celebration of physical beauty. Instead, he put his work in the service of the imperialist movement that led Japan into World War II. Now, as the mature O struggles through the aftermath of that war, his memories of his youth and of the floating world the cturnal world of pleasure, entertainment, and drink offer him both escape and redemption, even as they punish him for betraying his early promise. Indicted by society for its defeat and reviled for his past aesthetics, he relives the passage through his personal history that makes him both a hero and a coward but, above all, a human being.
