Excellent HF book based on a true story the voyage of four Japanese envoys in the early XVIIth century to Nueva Espa a Spain and Rome and from there all the way back to their homeland The story is told from two PoV Rokuemon Hasekura a samurai whose family eagerly want to have their lands back were taken because they fought for the wrong side during a war is probably the stereotype we have in mind when thinking about a samurai except there s no martial arts involved or flying and none of this Hollywood bullshit someone loyal obedient and that wants to maintain his family s and ancestor s honour as well as his own He s the one to describe how someone who has never been outside his master s lands feels when visiting two different continents and culture and their face to face with Christianity There are three other envoys who are also samurai with their own personnality which I really enjoyed reading The other side of the coin is Father Velasco a Spanish Franciscan missionnary who has convinced himself that God wants him to prozelitise Japan no matter the cost That s why when a Japanese Lord starts to be interested in trading with Mexico he soonly realises it is now or never if he wants to fulfill his ambition become the bishop of Japan Indeed he knows that little trade would be possible between Japan and Spain as long as Christians are banned or severely punished in Japan Therefore he uses the Japanese cravings for knowledge and profit to make them agree to send emmissaries to the Western World and him with them But are the Japanese earnest Overall their trip takes them than seven years and many things could ve changed It is a great book First because it s a very interesting topic and the descriptions of both the Western and Japanese world seem very accurate Second the characters and the plot are fantastic Except for the samurai who are bound in their ignorance everyone has an ulterior motive an ambition and nothing is what it seems The idea I got from the book is the difference between normal people and the government the great interests in a word the world of politics which may be at a state level or for the ruling of the Church The hypocrisy the selfishness and the ever moving tides of power who are never reluctant to swallow a few middle men who never had a chance to survive in this game Again great great book Well written Read itPS Although the author was Catholic and there s a lot of discussion on the nature of Christianity which is very interesting btw it is not proselytizing It s not a book about how cool Christianity is it is not a book about redemption or how samurai convert into Catholicism because Western values are so much better It s nothing of the sort I thought the author scharacters thoughts on religion on the image of the Christ and why some people believe were very meaningful very interesting but in no way imposing themselves

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 coming together of their points of view to some degree What disappointed me was the fact that although written by Japanese writer the writing felt very Western It showed none of the slow development attention to physical detail nor focus on family that all attract me to Japanese writers Some of this may be attributed to the translation but I would argue that Sh saku End has very much mastered a Western writing style so much so that for me he does not create those sensations that I turn to Japanese literature for that palate cleansing that my Friend Marita describes

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 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 simp

    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

    DNF 56% I decided to DNF this when I noticed that I wasn't looking forward to carrying on at all but was just forcing myself to because I'd chosen it for a challenge book I think I need a break from reading challenges while my life is challengingThis feels very similar to Silence which I read last year but without the same emotion
