review 痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB Junichiro Tanizaki’s Naomi is both a hilarious story of one man’s obsession and a brilliant reckoning of a nation’s cultural confusion   When twenty eight year old Joji first lays eyes upon the teenage waitress Naomi he is instantly smitten. One twothree The nimble feet glide effortlessly to the choreographed beats smooth flowing movements inviting the grace of the translucent skin embracing the rhythmic spin the soft camellia lips flutter in couettish whispersthe extravagance of the feline eyes prosper in the richness of the silk delicately stretched on the supple breasts swaying the vile sensuality on the genteel dance floors of El Dorado The music stops The moist palm slips away from the slender waist To the shrill of an encore the music begins again There she goes groaned the man hunched on a chair in a forlorn corner There she goesMy Mary Pickfordmy treasured diamondmy Nao chan Everyone called her Nao chan When I asked about it one day I learned that her real name was Naomi written with three Chinese characters A splendid name I thought written in Roman letters it could be a Western name The allure of the child woman in the cafes of Ginza pristine not yet polluted by worldly malevolence animates the humdrum existence of Kawai Joji a twenty something engineer For the inhibited gentleman brimming with social insecurities Nao chan was a barren canvas waiting to be painted in the Western flamboyancy The lost young bird becomes a valued pet to a man who yearns to release his inadeuacies and long harboured dreams of acceptance in social hierarchy a far cry from the social currency of being a discomfited country bumpkin To say that Joji fell in love with Naomi at the very first instance is overturned by the potent magnetism of Joji being besotted by the mere Westernized ring to the name Naomi and the recurrent comparison to his beloved Mary Pickford The faint shades of addiction to Naomi leisurely climb the monochromatic ladder of obsession for Western culture and to rectify personal shortcomings by moulding oneself through the physicality of a new adored maturing body overpowered by behavioural prism Fixated on the aura of screen idols like Gloria Swanson Mary Pickford and the gratification derived from the adhered chimera of Western lifestyles Joji s aspiration to create a Westernized prototype thrives on his worship of the Naomi s lithe sexuality and adolescent psyche The preposterous dream fostering the hedonism of Western culture sparkling with an exotic power and glamour becomes a gateway to lessen Joji s incompetence in trying to fit in a changing world My heart was a battleground for the conflicting emotions of disappointment and love The naive bird flapped its wings eager to fly in the air of modernity burgeoning desires outgrew the monotony of the modest birdcage and the avian wonder surpassed the wit of the benefactor Naomi s maturity evoked through the exactness of a Eurasian woman embodies the cultural vagueness perceived by the society confronted by the practise of two polarised lifestyles in a homogenous subsistence Irrationality of love coupled with uncouth fascination and social uselessness deepens the sensibilities of love and lust encircling the predicament of chastity Would I call Joji a decent man Is he the illustrious Humbert to the seditious Lolita The imminent answers seem to be modified under the existing challenges of Joji modifying his young love into a woman who sparkles through the lens of modernity Joji s loyalty to Naomi is well accounted for yet his fondness charts an egotistical naturalness that accompanies the reins of addiction ensnared by the collision of two different worlds encompassing two dissimilar sexes The greatest weakness of Japanese women is that they lack confidence As a result they look timorous compared to the Western women For the modern beauty an Intelligent uick witted expressions and attitude are important than lovely features The wide reaching ideology of modan gaaru or mo ga highly structured within Tanizaki s prose becomes the crucial dais depicting the bemusement over accommodating two vastly different cultures minimizing the social gap between the Eastern and Western civilizing standardizations Tanizaki illuminates the 1920 s Japanese society booming in the modernity of the so called Jazz age thronged with the flapper generation The bourgeoisie consumerism reflected through the chic standard of living and the indispensable liberation from a traditionalist society Joji s predicament over Naomi s nurtured polymorphous personality signifies the broad spectrum chaos revolving around the exposure to Westernization and the adherence to the peripheral illusion that the Western world brings to the unacuainted Joji s hypocritical stance flashes through his fear of the Naomi s Westernised demeanour and the lack of adherence to conservative dogmas Joji becomes a classic case of men who desire their women to acuire the Western cultural essence prearranging the ways which still dominate the conservative home grown cultural norms restricting the operational lifestyle to egoistical desires The battle of sexes emerging from the volatile deliberations between emancipation of love vs of emancipation of sexual desires overpowers the relationship coordination of Joji and Naomi disuieting the balance of power between the societal gradation in dominance of man and the subservience of a woman Joji s uncertainties on losing his own individuality in the domination of Naomi s rambunctious feral persona and reverting back to the age old Japanese s is plausible however I ponder the favourable possibility of the stakes being reversed crucially legitimizing a of an old fashioned attitude The irresistible appeal to the coined Naoism embodies cultural ambiguity unearthing the recognition of power and essence of sensuality engulfing the desire to fit in a Western lifestyle The precious sacred ground of her skin had been imprinted forever with the muddy tracks of two thieves The stance of promiscuity lurks from the multifarious triad of sexuality eroticism and romance Sexual autonomy exercised by Naomi on the realization of her sexual desires embryonic within her feminine voluptuousness is labelled as the vulgar peril of the Western culture Tanizaki cautiously cultivates the ascending nature of sexuality through vivid subtleties of eroticisms Joji s ritual of bathing Naomi the foreplay imitations of horseback rides insinuating sexual prowess and the pleasure derived from shaving her body carves a narrow alley that houses fragile residential berths of sexual duplicity The concept of sexual perversion intimately associates with sexual emancipation with vulgarity taking a high stand in the delusion of the Western vices Satirically the term harlot coagulates the sexist pigeonhole of gender specific terminology Tanizaki once again highlights the uandary faced in the patriarchal society where sexual freedom is viewed as a man s prerogative the same courtesy bestowed in gender supremacyThe ample urge of social and not personal modification in the cultural demeanour and reception signifies the puzzlement of a society and its populace jammed in between the recklessness of half wit sensitivity to the liberation of a foreign culture and the reluctance to the claustrophobic existence in the home grown conventional dogmas Joji along with Naomi are Tanizaki s treasured pictograms of a nascent mentality gripping the loose ends of two miscellaneous worlds balancing the societal dispute of rank peculiarities gender discrepancies and cultural practices There s nothing to be done when one loses confidence in one s self Tanizaki s poised pr cis lay bare the vicious dominance of love when inundated in the vigour of passionate compulsion dissolves the fragile individuality of the one who helms the reins of obsession fearing the annihilation of the everlasting love mirage The

review 痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB By her exotic almost Western appearance Determined to transform her into the perfect wife and to whisk her away from the seamy underbelly of post World War I Tokyo Joji adopts and ultimately marries Naomi paying for English and music lessons that. Two of the last few novels I ve read revolve around a man in his 30 s becoming erotically obsessed with a much younger woman obsessed to the point of self destruction Boredom by Moravia and Naomi by Tanizaki so I can t help but compare the two Boredom as I mentioned thrilled me Naomi bored me somewhat Both are of course predictable in their larger strokes you know the men will get further and further enthralled in the languid chaos of their consorts sex and that they will be effectively ruined by the end But Naomi s predictability bored me and it wasn t just the predictability that caused my interest to wane but the utter lack of interiority While the action of the novel was very interesting the characters were not Neither was given an interior life Both were defined completely by their actions This isn t a fatal flaw and was an obvious aesthetic strategy but it reminded me of just so many contrived designs upon a blankness and possibly a lack of authenticity Boredom rang true and authentic to me the product of a deep internal wrestling while Naomi was just so much artificial theater But then I like artificial theater so what s the problemI guess I like artificial theater that has a hidden element a trap door in the stage as it were that leads to a nest of snake like psyches entangled in thought processes Boredom offered this up to me in spades but Naomi s stage set however elaborately colorful had a hollow ring a hollow pounding of costumed feet on pine planksBut I just know that that trap door exists in Naomi so maybe it s either repressed beyond detection or else folded completely into the surface action and thus robbed of some of its power power that depends on this door being the entry to a hidden place This by the way this folding of the unseen and unspoken into the surface design is something I detect in much of the Japanese aesthetic just don t ask me to explain what the fuck I m talking about I just know that this uality is not inherent in the Kawabata I ve read and so Kawabata has a tremendous ineffable power lacking in the Tanizaki I ve read A filmic parallel of this dichotomy might be Ozu as compared to Mizoguchi but that would only go so far or maybe Noh theater as compared to Kabuki is a better comparisonBut the bigger uestion is why have I recently been drawn to two books dealing with essentially the same rather perverted theme old flesh enthralled by young flesh Is this my backhanded booknerd way of entering into a mid life crisis of my own a vicarious mid life crisis no less Should I chuck my books and step into real life and start chasing some taut young tail of my own damn the conseuencesOr should I remain supine on my trap door book in hand
