Japanese Counterculture: The Antiestablishment Art of Terayama Shuji

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  15 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Terayama Shuji (1935-1983) was an avant-garde Japanese poet, dramatist, film director, and photographer known for his highly provocative work. In this inventive and revealing work, Steven Ridgely examines Terayama's life and art to show that a conventional notion of him does not do full justice to the meaning and importance of his wide-ranging, often playful body of work.

This isn't without things I disagree with (who can avoid disagreeing over a figure as enigmatic as Terayama?), but overall is a lovely treatment of a number of his most preeminent obsessions and interests. The first chapter studying his tanka will stick out more than all the others here to me, but the study of Pastoral: To Die in the Country was also incredibly fascinating and, intentionally or not, almost seems to argue that it is Terayama's magnum opus above everything else. I would not argue.
