9780140181616: The Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Twentieth Century Classics)

A hopeless stutterer, taunted by his schoolmates, Mizoguchi feels utterly alone until he becomes an acolyte at a famous temple in Kyoto. But he quickly becomes obsessed with the temple's beauty, and cannot live in peace as long as it exists.

Review:

"Beautifully translated... Mishima re-erects Kyoto, plain and mountain, monastery, temple, town, as Victor Hugo made Paris out of Notre Dame." -- The Nation "An amazing literary feat in its minute delineation of a neurotic personality." -- Chicago Tribune Translated from the Japanese by Ivan Morris "From the Trade Paperback edition."
