Event Description

Burrow into the tortuous mind of controversial Japanese author Yukio Mishima with this tale of homoerotic desire, manipulation and revenge. Widely thought to be autobiographical, the novel follows aging writer Shunsuke, embittered by years of rejection, as he instructs his handsome, unhappily engaged protégé Yuichi in the skill of making the world his plaything, leading to an erotic downward spiral into the gay underworld of postwar Japan. Professor J. Keith Vincent (Chair, World Languages and Literatures, Boston University) will lead a salon-style discussion of the depictions of gender in the novel and A Third Gender: Beautiful Youths in Japanese Prints

Refreshments served.

$12/$10 Japan Society members, seniors & students
