Tokyo, 1912. The closed world of the ancient aristocracy is being breached for the first time by outsiders - rich provincial families, a new and powerful political and social elite. Kiyoaki has been raised among the elegant Ayakura family - members of the waning aristocracy - but he is not one of them. Coming of age, he is caught up in the tensions between old and new, and his feelings for the exquisite, spirited Sakoto, observed from the sidelines by his devoted friend Honda.

Runaway horses by Youjifu Sandao( Book )

100 editions published between 1969 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yukio Mishima's Runaway Horses is the second novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. Again we encounter Shigekuni Honda, who narrates this epic tale of what he believes are the successive reincarnations of his childhood friend Kiyoaki Matsugae. In 1932, Shigekuni Honda has become a judge in Osaka. Convinced that a young rightist revolutionary, Isao, is the reincarnation of his friend Kiyoaki, Honda commits himself to saving the youth from an untimely death. Isao, driven to patriotic fanaticism by a father who instilled in him the ethos of the ancient samurai, organizes a violent plot against the new industrialists who he believes are usurping the Emperor's rightful power and threatening the very integrity of the nation. Runaway Horses is the chronicle of a conspiracy -- a novel about the roots and nature of Japanese fanaticism in the years that led to war."--Publisher's description

After the banquet by Yukio Mishima( Book )

Redoubtable middle-aged Kazu falls hopelessly in love with Yuken Noguchi, idealist politician of the Radical Party. The problem is, Noguchi cannot see practical politics for what it is: a form of ideological prostitution. Kazu who has come up in the world the hard way bears no illusions - Noguchi, for all his bookish wisdom, has a lot of them. Kazu is the proprietor of a Setsugoan, an After-Snow-Retreat, where she is in the habit of entertaining the high-and-the-mighty of Japan. One day after a banquet, Tamaki, former ambassador to Germany, collapses in the toilet. The subsequent hullabaloo manages to throw Noguchi and Kazu together, and this gentleman of sixty and woman of fifty find themselves falling head-over-heels in love like teenagers. They become man and wife, and soon afterwards, Noguchi is chosen to run for office by the Radical Party. What is essentially an ideological fight for him, however, is just a fight for victory for his wife. Her methods which are not wholly fair and aboveboard invite Noguchi's wrath and their relationship soon begins to crack. And soon, Caesar's wife is attacked: then events proceed at a pace which nobody can control
The decay of the angel by Yukio Mishima( Book )

48 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yukio Mishima's The Decay of the Angel is the final novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. It is the last installment of Shigekuni Honda's pursuit of the successive reincarnations of his childhood friend Kiyoaki Matsugae. It is the late 1960s and Honda, now an aged and wealthy man, once more encounters a person he believes to be a reincarnation of his friend, Kiyoaki -- this time restored to life as a teenage orphan, Tōru. Adopting the boy as his heir, Honda quickly finds that Tōru is a force to be reckoned with. The final novel of this celebrated tetralogy weaves together the dominant themes of the previous three novels in the series: the decay of Japan's courtly tradition; the essence and value of Buddhist philosophy and aesthetics; and, underlying all, Mishima's apocalyptic vision of the modern era."--Publisher's description

"Yukio Mishima's The Temple of Dawn is the third novel in his masterful tetralogy, The Sea of Fertility. Here, Shigekuni Honda continues his pursuit of the successive reincarnations of Kiyoaki Matsugae, his childhood friend. Travelling in Thailand in the early 1940s, Shigekuni Honda, now a brilliant lawyer, is granted an audience with a young Thai princess--an encounter that radically alters the course of his life. In spite of all reason, he is convinced she is the reincarnated spirit of his friend Kiyoaki. As Honda goes to great lengths to discover for certain if his theory is correct, The Temple of Dawn becomes the story of one man's obsessive pursuit of a beautiful woman and his equally passionate search for enlightenment." -- Publisher's description

Five modern nō plays by Yukio Mishima( Book )

75 editions published between 1956 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 1,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese No drama is one of the great art forms that has fascinated people throughout the world. The late Yukio Mishima, one of Japan's outstanding post-war writers, infused new life into the form by using it for plays that preserve the style and inner spirit of No and are at the same time so modern, so direct, and intelligible that they could, as he suggested, be played on a bench in Central Park. Here are five of his No plays, stunning in their contemporary nature and relevance--and finally made available again for readers to enjoy

The way of the samurai : Yukio Mishima on Hagakure in modern life by Yukio Mishima( Book )

27 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1967, three years before Yukio Mishima's famed ritual suicide, Hagakure, the teachings of a samurai called Yamamoto (1659-1719), became a sort of samurai bible and was, seemingly, the most influential book in Mishima's life. Yamamoto's central perception is contained in the sentence "I found that the way of the samurai is death." He stresses that the samurai must perfect his resolution to die for his lord at any moment, and gives much advice on how he must conduct himself, even down to dealing with servants or stifling a yawn. He also laments, like Mishima after him, the decadence of his times - by which he means the predominance of the chrysanthemum over the sword. This book provides fascinating insights not only into the samurai code, but also into the life and death of Mishima. -- Back cover
The frolic of the beasts by Yukio Mishima( Book )

27 editions published between 1966 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Translated into English for the first time, a gripping short novel about an affair gone wrong, from the acclaimed Japanese author, Yukio Mishima. Set in rural Japan shortly after World War II, The Frolic of the Beasts tells the story of a strange and utterly absorbing love triangle between a former university student, K?ji; his would-be mentor, the eminent literary critic Ippei Kusakado; and Ippei?s beautiful, enigmatic wife, Y?ko. When brought face-to-face with one of Ippei?s many marital indiscretions, K?ji finds his growing desire for Y?ko compels him to action in a way that changes all three of their lives profoundly. Originally published in 1961 and now available in English for the first time, The Frolic of the Beasts is a haunting examination of the various guises we assume throughout our lives, and a tale of psychological self-entrapment, seduction, and murder."--
