    The Samurai is even better that Endo’s better known work Silence As much as I was moved by that novel about Spanish and Japanese martyrs it was hard to imagine another book which could be so good The Samurai starts off

  2. says:

    Endo’s prose and imagery resembles the technical perfection of Japanese lacuer ware; polished and graceful ‘The Sumarai’ charts the story of Father Velasco a nuanced and complex character whose drive to proselytise Japan driven as much by egomania as by piousness leads to him becoming entrapped in a web of political machinationsThe story is told via the perspective of two narrators; father Velasco and the Japanese Samurai

    This novel was published in 1980 and is considered by some to be the best of the work of the Japanese writer Shusaku Endo It is a book that I review hesitantly and with some trepidation since it is a narrative that I am sure will appeal to many readers It did not to meThe plot is complex but can be rather simply summarized although I leave the ending undisclosed so as not to spoil it for those who want to read it for themselves The story t

    The Samurai is basically ‘good’ I should note though that I was somewhat disappointed by the style and the writing This is a story of two men one a low status samurai and the other a Spanish Franciscan missionary who has dedicated his life to christianising Japan The story is both a struggle between the two and their cultures and a comi

侍|日本文化いろは事典 iroha japannet 侍の歴史は、平安時代頃に身分の高い人々にお仕えしてその身辺警護をする人達を「侍」と呼ぶようになった事からはじまりました。この時代に侍と呼ばれていた人達は武士の中でも比較的身分が高い位の人達でした。室町時代になると侍の定義は多少変化し、足利一門(※)に従う者が「侍 山本昌が選ぶ侍ジャパン最強メンバー。絶対に外せ 山本昌が選ぶ侍ジャパン最強メンバー。 絶対に外せない投打の軸は? 三一侍とは コトバンク デジタル大辞泉 三一侍の用語解説 《年間の扶持が両分であったところから》江戸時代、身分の低い武士を卑しんでいう語。三一奴さんぴんや. Endo s prose and imagery resembles the technical perfection of Japanese lacuer ware polished and graceful The Sumarai charts the story of Father Velasco a nuanced and complex character whose drive to proselytise Japan driven as much by egomania as by piousness leads to him becoming entrapped in a web of political machinationsThe story is told via the perspective of two narrators father Velasco and the Japanese Samurai Hasekura Hasekura s narrative often concentrates on his surroundings whether it is the verdant and vibrant Japanese countryside or the stifling and discombobulating Mexico heat or the slow falling snow over a dusk riddled river bed Hasekura s narrative often concentrates on the wonders of the world around him Winter landscapes had greeted the samurai here before but now flowers bloomed in profusion and in fields peasants lazily prodded their oxen The following day they saw the sea in the distance A warm spring sun was shining on the waves and the clouds floating in the sky were as soft as cotton The samurai s narration is suffused with sadness There is an air of melancholy to his feeling of displacement both in agreeing to the mission in order to regain his familial lands and in his journeys to Mexico Spain and Italy Taken from the Japanese marshlands Hasekura feels the weight of the world on his shoulders whether it be the endless ocean the acrid heat of the Mexican desert or the ebullience of Christianity Hasekura feels deeply alienated from the world he explores he is constantly haunted by the images of swans who occupy the marshlands of his birth who represent a kind of loss of innocence but spiritual awakening which Hasekura undergoes during the novelHasekura stands in stark contract to Father Velasco A naturally gregarious man who seeks to explore the world his narration is dominated by a sense of foreboding and narcissism Father Velasco is driven by a sense of his own greatness his muscular Christianity is dominated by his desire for renown Bishop of Japan and saviour of heathens he sees himself as an apostle reborn Yet mixed with this is genuine Christian humility and at times generosity Contradictions abound in Father Velasco s character one the one hand he is contemptuous of the Japanese yet on the other he feels a deep affinity for both the land and the people In many ways Velasco is symbolic of the mindset of many colonialists they dress up their desire to dominate as altruism and seek to displace the very culture which they often subconsciously are drawn toIndeed the clash of cultures is one of the central themes of The Samurai The reticent and insular nature of Japanese society means the the overly exuberant nature of European Christianity would never be an easy fit Endo is able to skilfully render the feelings and emotions of the Japanese emissaries and merchants who accompany Father Velasco who increasingly feeling engulfed within a world which has no place for their introversion and mannerisms and who are gradually guided into disaster by a priest whose egoism blinds him to the futility of his own mission

This is a marvelous work of historical fiction I was interested to learn about the lead up to the Edo period of Japan This was a time of three of Japan s most important leaders Nobunaga Toyotomi and Tokugawa who were responsible for unifying Japan This was also when Japan shut out foreign influences and extirpated all the vestiges of Christianity This was a time of Shoguns daimyos and samurais It was an interesting introduction to Japanese history culture and religion But the story is than thatFour low ranking samurai are chosen as envoys for an important mission to forge ties with the Spanish It was a risky gambit to invite proselytizing missionaries to come to Japan at a time when Christians were being persecuted This was in exchange for a chance to establish trade with the technologically advanced Spanish So these four pawns embarked on a perilous journey than halfway across the world They saw sights and met people which no other Japanese had met before Not only were they pushed to their physical limits but they were forced to compromise on their honour beliefs even their very soulsview spoilerThe story starts on a desperate and depressing note There is a sense of disenfranchisement and inevitability for the samurais and their families They were inveigled into accepting a supposedly important mission with a hope of repossessing the estates which their families had lost The four samurai were trapped individuals They were bound to serve the interests of their families and bound to serve their Lords and Patrons They had little choice of their own How devastating and soul crushing it was for them to discover later that their mission was a farce It was just a mere decoy to learn about sailing across the seas from the Spanish It was never about establishing trade relations or opening up to missionariesThe story is told from two perspectives One is from Father Velasco The second is from an unidentified third party observing the four samurai The four samurai have very distinctive characteristics and rolesHasekura was the main protagonist He was the most moderate of the four His character seemed rather dull at first but as things got worse and worse I could not help but feel sorry for him Intrigued by the humanity of Christ he struggles with his own existentialist beliefs We get a fair dose of Christology from the authorMatsuki was perhaps the most insightful of the four recognizing the futility of their mission and pulling out halfway through at the risk of being disgraced on his return He is also perhaps the most cowardly of the four abandoning the remaining three who naively but courageously soldier on to meet their fateTanaka was the uintessential samurai He is the most honour bound all the way to his death by seppukuNishi was the most junior ranked of the four He was wide eyed and ingenuousFather Valesco was single minded and ambitious well meaning but misguided He was so blinded by his drive to establish Christianity in Japan that he unwittingly catalyzes the downfall of the samurai There were interesting comparisons in the story As for the master and servant relationships the samurai took care of their servants like family whereas the samurai were disposable to their Lords The Japanese seemed vicious and ruthless compared to the Spanish but the Spanish were probably no betterLurking in the background of the story was the spectre of colonialism It was not explicit but the Spanish would have had designs on Japan While the samurai spent time in Neuva Espana Mexico and surrounds they were not just seeing the effects of colonialism on the Indians but rather what might have happened to the Japanese if Tokugawa had not shut the doors The tales of their sea journey was harrowing I cannot imagine sailing across the Pacific or Atlantic in a small wooden vessel But while they survived the wild ocean they could not navigate the political sea hide spoiler
