9780099282792: The Temple Of Dawn (The Sea of Fertility)

Honda, a brilliant lawyer and man of reason, is called to Bangkok on legal business, where he is granted an audience with a young Thai princess - an encounter that radically alters the course of his life. He is convinced she is a reincarnated spirit, and undertakes a long, arduous pilgrimage to the holy places of India, where, in the climatic scene, he encounters her once more, only to have his newfound beliefs shattered and his life bereft of all meaning.

Product Description:

Temple of Dawn

Review:

"The four novels remain one of the outstanding works of 20th-Century literature and a summary of the author's life and work... Like the Divine Comedy and Remembrance of Things Past, "The Sea of Fertility" gives the reader the sensation of being carried to a great height...but Mishima abandons the reader at the edge of the precipice, revealing the abyss beneath the degraded life of the post-war world" ( Los Angeles Times)

"Surpassingly chilling, subtle, and original" ( New York Times)

"Japan's foremost man of letters" ( Spectator)

"Tremendous...evocative and poetic" ( Los Angeles Times)
