The setting sun by Osamu Dazai( Book )

193 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the early postwar years, it probes the destructive effects of war and the transition from a feudal Japan to an industrial society. Ozamu Dazai died, a suicide, in 1948. But the influence of his book has made "people of the setting sun" a permanent part of the Japanese language, and his heroine, Kazuko, a young aristocrat who deliberately abandons her class, a symbol of the anomie which pervades so much of the modern world."--Provided by publisher
No longer human by Osamu Dazai( Book )

151 editions published between 1948 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the poignant and fascinating semi-autobiographical story of a young man who is caught between the breakup of the traditions of a northern Japanese aristocratic family and the impact of Western ideas.. Oba Yozo's attempts to reconcile himself to the world around him begin in early childhood, continue through high school, where he becomes a 'clown' to mask his alienation, and eventually lead to a failed suicide attempt as an adult. Without sentimentality, he records the casual cruelties of life and its fleeting moments of human connection and tenderness.."--Publisher

The schoolgirl by Osamu Dazai( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novella that first propelled Dazai into the literary elite of post-war Japan. Essentially the start of Dazai's career, Schoolgirl gained notoriety for its ironic and inventive use of language. Now it illuminates the prevalent social structures of a lost time, as well as the struggle of the individual against them - a theme that occupied Dazai's life both personally and professionally. This new translation preserves the playful language of the original and offers the reader a new window into the mind of one of the greatest Japanese authors of the 20th century"-Provided by publisher
A shameful life by Osamu Dazai( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Osamu Dazai is one of the most famous--and infamous--writers of 20th-century Japan. A Shameful Life (Ningen shikkaku) is his final published work and has become a bestselling classic for its depiction of the tortured struggle of a young man to survive in a world that he cannot comprehend. Paralleling the life and death of Dazai himself, the delicate weaving of fact and fiction remorselessly documents via journals the life of Yozo, a university student who spends his time in increasing isolation and debauchery. His doomed love affairs, suicide attempts, and constant fear of revealing his true self haunt the pages of the book and reveal a slow descent into madness. This dark tale nevertheless conveys something authentic about the human heart and its inability to find its true bearing

Colegiala by Osamu Dazai( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un excepcional volumen de relatos del maestro japonés de las distancias cortas, Osamu Dazai: uno de los escritores modernos más apreciados en su país, conocido como el Dostoievski nipón, cuyo éxito corrió paralelo a una vida privada de desencuentros y tumultuosa en extremo.Una chica joven, de familia pobre, se ve obligada a cometer un robo por amor. Una mujer mayor confiesa que una noche, muchos años atrás, se sintió fuertemente atraída por un hombre al que apenas conocía. Un ama de casa narra su sufrimiento al descubrir que su marido tiene una amante. Una muchacha narra cómo empeoró su vida tras recibir un premio literario... Los relatos incluidos en Colegiala abordan con tremenda delicadeza y exquisitez el universo femenino y sus contradicciones: la vergüenza, el amor no correspondido, la incomprensión ante la muerte de un ser querido, la felicidad extrema o, simplemente, los pensamientos que pasan por la cabeza de una adolescente japonesa de posguerra
