Ever so slowly it dawns on him that following the Way of the Sword is not simply a matter of finding a target for his brute strength. Continually striving to perfect his technique, which leads him to a unique style of fighting with two swords simultaneously, he travels far and wide, challenging fighters of many disciplines, taking nature to be his ultimate and severest teacher and undergoing the rigorous training of those who follow the Way. He is supremely successful in his encounters, but in the Art of War he perceives the way of peaceful and prosperous governance and disciplines himself to be a real human being. He becomes a reluctant hero to a host of people whose lives he has touched and been touched by. And, inevitably, he has to pit his skill against the naked blade of his greatest rival
Taiko : an epic novel of war and glory in feudal Japan by Eiji Yoshikawa( Book )

In the tempestuous closing decades of the sixteenth century, the Empire of Japan writhes in chaos as the shogunate crumbles and rival warlords battle for supremacy. Warrior-monks in their armed citadels block the road to the capital; castles are destroyed, villages plundered, fields put to the torch. Amid this devastation, three men dream of uniting the nation. At one extreme is the charismatic but brutal Nobunaga, whose ruthless ambition crushes all before him. At the. opposite pole is the cold, deliberate Ieyasu, wise in counsel, brave in battle, mature beyond his years. But the keystone of this triumvirate is the most memorable of all, Hideyoshi, who rises from the menial post of sandal bearer to become Taiko - absolute ruler of Japan in the Emperor's name. When Nobunaga emerges from obscurity by destroying an army ten times the size of his own, he allies himself with Ieyasu, whose province is weak but whose canniness and loyalty. make him invaluable. Yet it is the scrawny, monkey-faced Hideyoshi - brash, impulsive, and utterly fearless - who becomes the unlikely savior of this ravaged land. Born the son of a farmer, he takes on the world with nothing but his bare hands and his wits, turning doubters into loyal servants, rivals into faithful friends, and enemies into allies. In all this he uses a piercing insight into human nature that unlocks castle gates, opens men's minds, and captures women's. hearts. For Hideyoshi's passions are not limited to war and intrigue - his faithful wife, Nene, holds his love dear, even when she must share it; the chaste Oyu, sister of Hideyoshi's chief strategist, falls prey to his desires; and the seductive Chacha, whom he rescues from the fiery destruction of her father's castle, tempts his weakness. As recounted by Eiji Yoshikawa, author of the international best-seller Musashi, Taiko tells many stories: of the fury of Nobunaga. and the fatal arrogance of the black-toothed Yoshimoto; of the pathetic downfall of the House of Takeda; how the scorned Mitsuhide betrayed his master; how once impregnable ramparts fell as their defenders died gloriously. Most of all, though, Taiko is the story of how one man transformed a nation through the force of his will and the depths of his humanity. Filled with scenes of pageantry and violence, acts of treachery and self-sacrifice, tenderness and savagery, Taiko. combines the panoramic spectacle of a Kurosawa epic with a vivid evocation of feudal Japan

"Soudain, il vit la vérité : les techniques de l'homme d'épée n'étaient pas son but ; il cherchait une Voie du sobre qui embrassât toute chose. ...

Affrontements, rencontres, épreuves et leçons : telle est la voie de la sagesse, l'unique voie menant à la parfaite lumière. Mais pour l'atteindre, Musashi doit engager l'ultime combat

"Hiyoshi es un niño de familia humilde, hijo de un samurái reconvertido en granjero. Menudo y feo, todos lo conocen como "Cara de Mono", siendo objeto constante de burlas. Pero detrás de su rostro arrugado, Hiyoshi esconde grandes virtudes: es un chico tenaz, inteligente, tremendamente persuasivo, además de poseer un descaro y una ambición insólitos. Armado únicamente con sus manos desnudas, Hiyoshi se dispone a abrirse paso en el intrincado mundo de los señores de la guerra. Basada en la vida real de Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-1598), figura clave en la historia japonesa, Taiko introduce al lector en un apasionante viaje por el Japón feudal, sumergiéndolo en un trepidante desfile de hazañas épicas, batallas y expediciones militares. Se ambienta a finales del siglo XVI, el de los últimos años del Sengoku, una época de cruentas y largas guerras civiles, y describe un tiempo decisivo, en el cual se pacificó Japón. Una hazaña llevada a cabo por los tres grandes daimyos o señores feudales, conocidos como los unificadores del país. El carismático pero brutal Nobunaga, el astuto e inteligente Hideyoshi y el paciente y maduro Tokugawa."--
