In Praise of Shadows by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki

Lucinda and 8 other people liked Zadignose's review of In Praise of Shadows:
In Praise of Shadows by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki
"A backward, reactionary, nationalistic prose piece disguised as an essay on aesthetics, which engages in strange speculation and musing that is not at all well supported. But it gets better towards the end when its cantankerousness and hyperbole g..." Read more of this review »
Lucinda and 10 other people liked Tony's review of In Praise of Shadows:
In Praise of Shadows by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki
"If Tanizaki had written this book from a Westerner's perspective, the essay would be regarded as retrograde and pessimistically nostalgic. To be sure, only a highly-evolved culture is capable of a reciprocal relationship between production and app..." Read more of this review »

Aucun intérêt si vous n'êtes pas japonais ou fan absolu de la culture japonaise
Considérations conservatrices et nationalistes
La deuxième partie est plus intéressante mais la première s'apparente à un manuel de bricolage, ni plus, ni moins

Jane Austen
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

William Blake
“Children of the future age
Reading this indignant page
Know that in a former time
Love, sweet love, was thought a crime”
William Blake

Oscar Wilde
“There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book.
Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Edmond Rostand
“Ah non ! C'est un peu court jeune homme
On pourrait dire, O Dieu, bien des choses en somme
En variant le ton, par exemple, tenez:
Agressif: moi monsieur, si j'avais un tel nez
Il faudrait sur le champ que je me l'emputasse !
Amical: mais il doit tremper dans votre tasse
Pour boire faîtes-vous donc fabriquer un hanap.
Descriptif: c'est un roc ! c'est un pic ! c'est un cap !
Que dis-je, c'est un cap ? c'est une péninsule !”
Edmond Rostand

William Shakespeare
“Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May
And summer's lease hath all too short a date”
William Shakespeare
