Set in a remote fishing village in Japan The Sound of Waves is a timeless story of first love It tells of Shinji a young fisherman. Truly amazed me was the seemingly effortless simplicity of The Sound of Waves and the minimalistic discipline The Vintage Classics cover which I fell in love with at first sight gives you an idea of what to expect I also liked the tiny drawings at the beginning of each chapterThe novel resembles a folk tale structured according to a typical love story pattern a Step Out of Your Story handsome boy Shinji who is a fisherman meets a beautiful girl Hatsue a pearl fisher They fall in love and then bravely face some obstacles which make them prove that they deserve each other Shinji and Hatsue s respect for social traditions and the moral code their courage and determination turned out to be the key to successShotei Takahashi Awabi Pearl Fisher 1931The predictability of Yukio Mishima s novel made me think of the thesis of Vladimir Propp a Russian scholar that all folk tales are built on the basis of aomogeneous pattern On the material of 100 stories with different plots e distinguished the components of the folk tale and created a classification based on function You will find some of them in The Sound of Waves albeit Mishima s novel is purely realistic there are no magic elements there Mishima deals with universal truths but the novel is set in very concrete time and place in contemporary Japan on a tiny island called Uta jima Song Island the inspiration was a real island Kami shima in Ise Bay I enjoyed the local colour the descriptions of the villagers their omes customs clothes food relationships The existence of Shinji and Hatsue their families and friends is based on the sea It feeds the villagers gives them almost everything they need not only work but also aesthetic pleasure No wonder in some languages for example in Italian there is only one letter difference between the words sea mare and mother madre The sea it only brings the good and right things that the island needs and keeps the good and right things we already Rules for a Lady haveere In spite of appearances the life on Uta jima is not carefree istory stretched its claws to this remote place also Shinji s father was killed during the World War II like many other local men people struggle with poverty worry about the disturbing news of the war in KoreaKami shima SourceAlthough the plot steadily follows the classic love story plot pattern the dynamics of the novel is based on the sea the way the waves change from placid and undisturbed regular and peaceful as though the sea were breathing in ealthy slumber to stormy ones typhoon included They are like an accompaniment to the characters emotions and desires The boy felt a consummate accord between ABC himself and this opulence of nature that surroundedim He inhaled deeply and it was as though a part of the unseen something that constitutes nature Odd Man In had permeated the core ofis being He Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale heard the sound of the waves striking the shore and it was as though the surging ofis young blood was keeping time with the movement of the sea s great tides The waves may also symbolize the passing of time and transience of our yearningsDespite the foreseeabilit I m probably crazy and am imagining a considering feeling between Yukio Mishima and me I m feeling like Parking Lot Rules 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children he s a kindred spirit kind of author who wants the same kinds of things that I wanted Past tense I mean Forim not me I want Pretend I m not crazy What if The Sound of Waves was a beautiful story about young love between two young and loving individuals Shinji a simple guy who liked simple pure at Carlyle Marney heart things like providing foris family and village Not simple life stuff like gossip and possession What if Shameful his girlfriend was Hatsue She s beautiful in the wake up and smell the flowers kind of way Sunny days and oceanorizons Uncomplicated goodness and babies smiling that s a real smile and you don t wonder if they just ave gas I wasn t a nice baby the way my mom tells it I probably wasn t I probably just ad gas But I like sunsets and watching fish underneath the water The way their mouths open and they breathe with gills I d want them to stay under there forever And Never Have To Come never Sacred Landscapes have to come guess that rules out life as a simple fisher woman or diving woman like Hatsue or Shinji s mother Their surroundings aren t as easy as that The seas don t part when it sees sea love It s earned like rain or stuff thatappens with time Not grisly for ratings on the nature channel nature just real nature time I felt like Mishima wanted to be like Shinji and Hatsue

"i liked that "liked that ability to stop and smell flowers as they say To be pretty too and share that smile I felt like The Sound of Waves was the yearning to be like them and it felt all the bittersweet for being outside They aren t Angel Without Mercy (Agnes Carmichael, hurt by the world that doesn t find it thatard The fish are still under the water and there are still flowers They won t go away Some feeling I Gold Rush had about innocenceIt s just a feeling Iad It could be possible to see it and follow it You must remember thisA kiss is still a kissA sigh is just a sighThe fundamental things applyAs time goes by The most enduring stories are often very simple Boy meets girl they like each other the world conspires to drive them apart they remain faithful to each other and in the end they may be reunited or forever alone His name is Shinji Girl Reporter her name is Hatsue but for most of the book they are referred to as the boy and the girl The boy is a poor fisherman whose fatheras been killed in the war and now Hunted heas to work to support Gingerbread Heart his mother and little brother The girl is a pearl diver whoas been recalled ome by er rich father after being sent for adoption a long time ago They live on a small island in the picturesue Gulf of Ise their daily lives following a pattern set down since ancient times by the phases of the moon and the turning of the seasons Few of them are aware or care about the modern times and the sophistication of the mainland Japan Their lives are complete in their traditions and routines and their ambitions are narrow a boat a Biz Talk-2 house children to carry ononouring the ancestors and the family nameThe author uotes as Ricky Ricottas Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn (Ricky Ricotta, his source of inspiration a visit to Greece and theistory of Daphnys and Chloe the same legend that A Historical Atlas of Tibet has inspired in XVI century France the popular Arcadian or Pastoral poetry and pageants Instead of shepherds and shepherdesses Mishima chooses fishermen and pearl divers but the basic premise of innocence and purity being threatened by envious modernists civilization as the enemy is presentere While Shinji and Hatsue are presented as either unaware or immune to the temptations of carnal love Chiyoko and Yasuo the two youngsters who are responsible for driving them apart are selfish and insecure and jealous It is implied that both of them The Last Awakening (Curse of the Phoenix, have been tainted by spending too much time on the mainland Chiyoko at university in Tokyo and Yasuo in seaside towns wheree takes care of is father s shipping business The contrast between tradition and emancipation may reflect Mishima s own conservative political views although this is one of is early novels and I understand that the far right drift manifested itself later in the author s career One of Deep Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning series) his other signature touches is the fascination with suicide presentere in the young Chiyoko storyline and argued as a valid way to restore Critical Social Theory and the End of Work honour after making a mistakeIave used the world pastoral earlier but I believe it is misleading There is a strong lyrical sense and metaphor in the novel and an untainted natural environment but it reminds me of the Italian neorealism in cinema of Passolini Fellini Rossellini and Visconti with their amateur actors and their working class poetry I see the translation into a Japanese setting in the minimalist yet luminous and clear etched prose of Mishima in the constant awareness And Hatsue the beautiful daughter of the wealthiest man in the village Shinji is entranced at the sight of Hatsue in the twilight.
