Annotation

Yukio Mishima blazed a path through Japanese fiction in the fifties and sixties,just as he was reaching the peak of his powers he committed ritual suicide and the world lost a great voice from the orient... "The Sound of Waves" is set on a small island in the Gulf of Ise,Eastern Japan. This short but brilliantly formed tale follows the paths of two star crossed lovers as they court each other tentatively amid the hard working lives they lead on the island. Flora,fauna,dialogue,narrative and plotlines are delicately woven around a beautiful location and an age old story. Mishima reads very well, his use of metaphor and similie is exceptionally good and i highly recommend this 1956 novel to all readers,not just fans of Japanese fiction.
