Beauty and Sadness Japanese 美しさと哀しみと Utsukushisa to kanashimi to is a 1964 novel by Japanese Nobel Prize winning author Yasunari KawabataOpening on the train to Kyoto the narrative in characteristic Kawabata fashio. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us Frank Kafka Beauty and Sadness is much than a mere contrivance to attract potential readers this magic narration shrouded in magnificent contradiction has the power to shock right from the beginning with the indwelling lyricism emanating from its title Beauty and Sadness Opposing concepts fused and confused in a blur of balmy ocher and passionate red in the inevitable passage of time and the timelessness of the frozen moment in the unconditional love and the implacable revenge in the reuired brushstroke of fiction to capture a perpetual reality in a canvas This is not a journey for everyone only for those who willfully choose the forking path of love for those who struggle against treacherous jealousy with an obstinacy that does not yield to continuum disillusionment for those who can find in themselves enough insight to bask in that strange scent of mixed roses and cinder for those daring enough to dance to the rhythm of the beat and the beating heart of the beauty and sadnessOtoko and Oki s affair whose love set fire to their existence and changed not only their lives but also the ones of the yet unborn becomes the center of the story Theirs was a brief but intense relationship Otoko was only fifteen Oki was a married man in his mid thirties with a newborn son When Otoko s illicit baby dies in childbirth and Oki abandons her she tries to commit suicide but Oki s brief return brings her back to life Twenty years pass and Oki has become a celebrity thanks to his most famous novel based on his affair with Otoko a book that immortalized their love forever a moving work of art that made of Otoko an eternal young girl of fifteenOtoko has arisen as a battered survivor She is now a recognized painter in the Japanese tradition who has finally found peace in the company of her female pupil and whimsical lover Keiko But Otoko s love for Oki has never run dry A fateful encounter between Otoko and Oki reopens unhealed wounds from the past and triggers a chain of events which none of them could have ever predicted blurring the thin line between love and hate compassion and revengeHow do we chop through the frozen sea of others How can we prevent the past coming forward how can we avoid the past reviving again and meeting us in its complete strangenessA building sense of doom contracts and expands fluidly attuned to the poetic melancholy of the Japanese landscapes where ancient temples traditional ceremonies and snow covered and eerie mounts serve as a nest for the development of this classic tragedy of memorable love loss madness and revenge wrapped up in the stillness and delicate contemplation that such profound feelings reuire Lyric passages about the anthem of human connectedness and their mismatched selves are brought up to life with Kawabata s careful choice of words Beauty and Sadness is one of those rare but not impossible love stories which can t be erased like one does with discarded tea leaves at the bottom of a cup or like a forgotten picture buried deep at the back of a neglected drawer This is a hymn to beauty which will remain embedded in the most recondite part of any sensitive pulsating soul The essence of existence becomes a feeble and restrained throb accompanying those who allow themselves to be dragged by the flowing stream of this perturbing storyIn an exotic Japan where tradition and the disturbing presence of unfulfilled desire meditation and yearning colorful art and greyish death are inexorably melted the tearing loss and the stand still moment will reincarnate into scarred flesh invoking cold Beauty and piercing Sadness as a chant for passionate love regardless of the powerful inner currents which presage the insurmountable tragedySomeone somewhere once asked Is love worth it I would answer that yes it is
