        Yasunari Kawabata was a Japanese short story writer and novelist whose spare, lyrical, subtly shaded prose works won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1968, the first Japanese author to receive the award His works have enjoyed broad international appeal and are still widely read.Nobel Lecture 1968nobelprize nobel_prize


    1. To the singing oars,Jump the watery imp,Moon-lit skies wake,Tender palms aglow,Lonely hearts to split,Weeping willows below,Cages with open doors,Fireflies over the lake.On a nearby tree, the screeching became louder with every passing minute. I knew it then, it was already past midnight. The bats were probably having a little party; for once their pairs of lustrous eyes were not being meticulously counted by a silly woman amid the flickering of the street light. I did not care about these noctu [...]

    2. I’ll Find YouI’ve just read three Kawabata works in succession to try and appreciate the merits of this Nobel Prize Winner.Based on one fairly distracted reading, I have to say that this was the weakest of the three novels.I would probably rate it at three stars, possibly 3 ½, but I’ll increase it to four, because of the quality of the prose.Less than Exquisite FantasyThe prose is precise and economical, insofar as it describes external realities. It is as graceful and evocative as brush [...]

    3. "Have you ever had that experience a feeling of profound regret after passing some stranger in the street? I've had it often. I think to myself, 'What a delightful looking person!' or 'What a beautiful woman!' or 'I've never seen anyone quite as attractive as that before.' It happens when I'm just strolling around the streets, or sitting next to a stranger in the theatre or walking down the steps from a concert hall. But once they've gone, I know I'll probably never meet them again in my life On [...]

    4. Μέσα από διάφορες ερωτικές ιστορίες του πρώην καθηγητή Τζινμπεϊ γίνεται ένα βαθύ ψυχογράφημα του χαρακτήρα του, ενώ ταυτόχρονα βλέπουμε μικρές στιγμές των ζωών που αυτός με κάποιον τρόπο επηρέασε. Η πρόζα του συγγραφέα μου άρεσε πάρα πολύ, έχει κάτι νοσταλγικό / μελαγχολι [...]

    5. Kawabata, Nobel Edebiyat Ödülünü Japonya'ya götüren ilk yazar olma özelliğiyle, Japon edebiyatının en 'vitrin' isimlerinden birisidir. 1968'de ödülü kazandığında, ilk kez Japon edebiyatına karşı dünyada bir merak oluşmuş, akabinde de yavaş yavaş başka dillere çeviriler başlamıştır. Keza Japon Edebiyatından Türkçeye de, ilk kez bu dönemde kitap çevrilmiştir; bu da Kawabata'nın bir eseridir. O zamandan günümüze değin -şuan baskısı bulunamasa bile- Kawaba [...]

    6. Mỗi nhà văn hay có một vài chủ đề ưa thích, trở đi trở lại. Với Kawabata đó là ám ảnh về cái đẹp. Hồ là câu chuyện về Gimpei, một người đàn ông kỳ quái, bị ảm ánh bởi vẻ đẹp của những cô gái, đồng thời, mang trong người mặc cảm về cái xấu. Ám ảnh làm cho anh ta trở nên kỳ quái, thậm chi bệnh hoạn, nhưng tận cùng trong anh ta là một tâm hồn cô đơn và dễ bị tổn thương. C [...]

    7. Một cuốn sách đẹp để đọc trong một ngày âm u như hôm nay. Kawabata miêu tả về cái đẹp, dục tính và sự ám ảnh tràn ngập nỗi buồn và lãng đãng như mặt hồ mù sương. Nỗi ám ảnh về cái đẹp, về mặc cảm của sự thiếu hoàn hảo, ám ảnh vì quá khứ không trọn vẹn hay sự chối từ , những ám ảnh ấy tạo thành những ảo ảnh ngăn cách họ với thế giới và cả hạnh phúc mà họ chẳng [...]

    8. Wow, that was dark. None of Kawbata's books that I've read so far have been what you'd call light-hearted. But it felt to me as if this one plumbed depths of the human spirit that even Kawabata didn't usually descend to in his fiction. The technique of this novel plays around with linear narrative, giving us the whole picture of a sad, twisted man's life and psyche in bits and pieces, saving some crucial revelations for the very end while circling around motifs whose meaning is only gradually el [...]

    9. "Hồ" viết về nỗi buồn mênh mông của kẻ suốt đời khao khát cái đẹp - một khao khát vượt trên nhục dục tuy có bao gồm nhục dục - trong khi bản thân mình, ít nhất là về mặt thể xác, hoàn toàn đối lập với cái đẹp. Càng bị ám ảnh bởi sự xấu xí của thể xác mình, gã đàn ông trong truyện, một cách vô thức, càng bất an - như thể sợ rằng sự xấu xí về thể xác của y cũng sẽ ám san [...]

    10. Σαφώς κατώτερο σε σχέση με το αριστουργηματικό "Η χώρα του χιονιού", αλλά και το εντυπωσιακό "Το σπίτι των κοιμισμένων κοριτσιών". Εντούτοις, αυτή η μικρή νουβέλα…όζει Kawabata στυλιστικά και θεματολογικά. Τελικά, κάτι σάπιο υπάρχει στο Βασίλειο της Ιαπωνίας. Ο έρωτας δεν είναι [...]

    11. A musing on beauty and ugliness - someting the Japs are obsessed by.Imagine a perv with deformed feet, having his bunions caressed by A geisha in elegant dress; well that’s what this book is like.If you like such, then give it a read; if you don’t, then be on your bike.

    12. The Lake by Yasunari Kawabata begins with a fugitive entering a bath. He is Gimpei, a self-conscious old man with ugly feet who was suspended from teaching for seducing his teenage student. Gimpei recently took a bag dropped by a woman containing two hundred thousand yen and ran away from home, fearing the police will be after him.Fragmented scenes and memories flashed in his head while he was bathed by the establishment’s pretty attendant. The voice and the body of the young girl stirred up h [...]

    13. In my head, Kawabata is the kindly, elegant grandfather of J. fiction, writing novels about the light falling across scrolls in tokonoma alcoves. But then I pick up a book and remember "Oh, yes. 'Japanese mental' didn't start with Mishima or Oe.""The Lake": Do you remember Patrick Swayze's character sobbing in his "kiddie-porn dungeon" at the end of "Donnie Darko"? This is the Japanese literary equivalent of those two seconds of American cinema.Certainly with his later works that were serialised [...]

    14. 1. Nói chung không thích bằng những cuốn của Kawabata mình đã đọc. 2. Kawabata không viết cuốn này năm 2054. Nhã Nam có một sai lầm ngớ ngẩn ở trang 2.3. Có cách nào nói bookaholic đừng đóng tên trang web lên bìa sách nữa không? Bookaholic không liên quan gì tới cuốn sách này hết. Cái công add sách lên cũng không đủ lớn tới mức phải để lại dấu ấn đâu. Các bạn khác có add sách cũng nên chọn bìa [...]

    15. The Lake is the second book of Nobel laureate Kawabata that I have read. Unlike the House of the Sleeping Beauties and Other Stories, which I thought to be a remarkable text particularly the title story, The Lake came across as a frustrating work in terms of style.Briefly, it is the story of a homeless stalker, Gimpei, who follows certain women that he finds posses a certain quality of beauty. What we know of Gimpei is that he was a former school teacher until he stalked one of his students, and [...]

    16. Thoạt đầu cứ nghĩ đây là một cuốn sách dễ đọc . Mặc dù ngay bìa đề là Nobel văn chương 1968 . Vẫn là chẳng có cuốn nào đoạt Nobel mà lại dễ đọc cả . Nói gọn thì Hồ có thể diễn tả bằng ba từ : ĐẸP. BUỒN . CAY ĐẮNG . Gimpei , nhân vật chính của Hồ là người bị ám ảnh bởi cái đẹp và biểu hiện của nỗi ám ảnh đó là hành vi bám theo các cô gái đẹp có khi là không quen biết . [...]

    17. Com'era successo anche con "La casa delle belle addormentate", Kawabata è riuscito con la sua scrittura a farmi provare quel totale senso di tristezza, malinconia e nostalgia, soprattutto nostalgia, "grazie" o per colpa (dipende da che punto la si veda) ogni minimo dettaglio e/o particolare che ci circonda costantemente.Kawabata esercita uno strano e potente potere su di me, per il momento ho letto solo due suoi libri (e ne possiedo altri) ed entrambi si sono incollati alle mie mani e come sang [...]

    18. Δεύτερο βιβλίο του Γιασουνάρι Καβαμπάτα που διαβάζω, μετά την καλογραμμένη και ενδιαφέρουσα συλλογή με τον τίτλο "Το σπίτι των κοιμισμένων κοριτσιών" που διάβασα τον Νοέμβριο του 2014. Εδώ έχουμε να κάνουμε με ένα μικρό σε μέγεθος μυθιστόρημα, το οποίο μπορώ να πω ότι μου άρε [...]

    19. Hauntingly good. I can totally see why Mr. Kawabata won the Nobel prize for literature. His writing has so much soul in it you feel kind of lost in the intensity of the character's feelings. Rich and complex this is not a book for action lovers, but rather more for those who have a contemplative mind and enjoy watching life as it unfolds.

    20. Something serendipitous about coming to Yasunari Kawabata's 1974 short novel, "The Lake" pretty much by accident [just grabbed it off the shelf on a whim while looking for some Mishima books:], especially after having read Tanizaki's "The Key" and Marquez's "Melancholy Whores" and Duras' "The Lover," because yet again we have older male figures trying to sustain their own fading youth in the company of younger women. The ostensible protagonist of this book is an unwitting thief, and the first se [...]

    21. Rate: 3.5/5Gimbei có cái gì đó ở hắn làm tôi thấy tội nghiệp hơn là nghĩ hắn xấu xa như lời cô bạn của Hisako.Hồ, nơi cha Gimbei chết, gắn liền với tuổi thơ của hắn. Mỗi tình tiết trong câu chuyện đều thấp thoáng hình bóng Gimbei bên bờ hồ với người chị họ Yayoi. Chẳng biết hắn bị ám ảnh về cái đẹp khi nào, nhưng hắn bị ám ảnh bởi nó, tìm kiếm nó từ người này đến người kh [...]

    22. according to statistics, みづうみ is read to only a tenth the degree of Kawabata's other works, and perhaps justifiably so. if Kawabata's masterpieces are "works one must read before one dies," it's possible to go through life without ever reading Mizuumi, but why? a classic Kawabata in that every word counts, and the overall effect is just as powerful as any single word-choice. a sea of impressions that is somehow powerfully united, and capable of eliciting the strongest feeling in those o [...]

    23. ثمّة خيط يُخيل إليّ أني على وشك أن أمسكهُ في هذهِ الرواية ويفلت منيأنهُ الخيط الذي يربط الشخصية بذاتها، أحلام الشخصية ورؤاها وحتى كوابيسها بالتصرفات على أرض الواقع.أنّهُ خيط المغزى، الذي يشد الحكايات إلى بعضها طبعاً هذا البحث عن الخيط وملاحقته هو هوس قارئ النص الروائي كما ه [...]

    24. A disturbing former schoolteacher, obsessed with his ugly, monkey-like feet, stalks women and has sex with one of his students. "The Lake" is much more sprawling than Kawabata's other works which tend to be intimate and with a handful of characters. "Sprawling" here doesn't mean large in the usual sense, it's just unusual for Kawabata to have webs of characters interacting and intersecting as he does here. Dark and tormented, more so than his other novels, "The Lake" is a toe-dip, ever so cautio [...]

    25. Kawabata is still one of my favorite Japanese authors. I planned my trip to Kyoto by reading The Old Capital. I learned about the meditative quality of the game Go in The Master of Go. And in A Thousand Cranes Kawabata taught me about the tea ceremony and love. Now, after finishing The Lake I possess understanding of ugly feet and the beauty of young girls.I've heard people complain about this book; about it's subject matter. I've heard say it was one of Kawabata's worse efforts. And I just don' [...]

    26. Chắc hẳn ai trên thế giới này cũng bị cuốn hút bởi cái đẹp, nhưng chỉ số ít trong số chúng ta bị ám ảnh bởi cái đẹp, bị thôi thúc kiếm tìm mà thôi. Không chỉ như vậy, Gimpei của Kawabata còn luôn ám ảnh bởi vẻ ngoài xấu xí của mình, nhưng y đã vất bỏ tất cả, sẵn sàng đi theo cái đẹp đến tận cùng. Nhìn dưới khía cạnh đó, chẳng phải y cũng rất dũng cảm đó sao? Cái đam mê đ [...]

    27. Oh, lookie what I just by chance found last night when dusting off a shelf of books I had inherited from my father's library without looking at the titles properly!A 1974 first edition copy!I'll definitely be hanging on to this, dust or no dust!It's a hardcover with a dust jacket and all. Can you believe I never noticed it before!

    28. Me gustó mucho, es el primer libro que leo de Kawabata y seguramente leeré más. Sí les ha gustado "El túnel" de Sábato, seguro les gustará éste. Es un libro envolvente con una narrativa simple y un personaje principal intrigante, obsesivo y complejo.

    29. لا ادري ما الذي تركته فيه هذه الرواية من اثر فهي معتمة كابوسية ٠٠٠ تعبق بالهذيان والسخرية من واقع لا يشبه ما نتمنى قد لا تفهم منها الكثير لكنك ستحبها دون ان تدري لم
