痴人の愛 Chijin no AiThe literal translation of the original would be Idiot s Love but this might not sound very attractive to English speaking eople Idiotic Love or Foolish Love might work but using the main female character s name is an acceptable alternative I read this in Japanese and I am not familiar with any of the English translation It looks like there are several translations but I don t see translator s name on some editions here on GR so it s hard to tell I guess it s hard to appreciate a book that was written almost a century ago in another country I see the book intro says hilarious story but the book is not meant to be funny At least back when this was written the story was completely serious Silly foolish yes But not hilarious not comical Obsessive yes And sad Readers might benefit from reading the same author s In Praise of Shadows to better understand the background culture of this novel 1 foolish starWhat the hell did I just readNo Why the hell did I even bother to

marries Naomi and takes charge for her care and upbringing and the two set up a household that is chaste though not without sexual tension in which the two or less Mansfield Park play house rather than assume the traditional Japanese roles expected of husband and wife There seems to be an emphasis on western style conspicuous consumption and the Joji spoils Naomi with clothes and such the difficult she becomesI won t spoil the story by telling you what happens to Joji and Naomi other than to say that Naomi becomes a bit of a nightmare and Joji a bit of a wimp whose strong hand becomes weaker as the storyrogresses There are elements of other books in this story Leopold Sacher Masoch s Venus in Furs Pierre Louys The Woman and the Puppet the movie The Blue Angel etc at least in terms of Joji s downfall as a ussy whipped male Joji ends up creating the monster that he wants in the be careful what you wish for veinThe book is written in fairly simple terms and I wouldn t exactly agree with Booklists s testimonial on the back of the Vintage edition that the book is in a class with Lady Chatterley s Lover and Lolita certainly not in terms of literary skill but the comparison to Lolita is sometimes apt in spots I never was sure if Joji and Naomi ever actually had sex It s kept retty vague I would have liked that to have been stated a little directlyThe book kept my attention the whole way though and its insights into the changing culture of Japan were fascinating to me I loved the description of Joji s nervousness and the environs of the dance studio as he approached his first dance lesson with NaomiOverall I found this odd romance and cautionary tale very satisfying though I liked Tanizaki s sexually explicit and complex story of kink and marital misunderstandings The Key far This novel is Flash Crash pretty commendable for a first effort I write this with my experience as an Asian woman and my connection to South Korea in mind but the broader fascination of the West thatresents itself in Naomi is something that 언더프린 piued my interest in this novel A cursory examination of Jun ichir Tanizaki s Naomi will undoubtedlyerturb readers a novel that centres on the rotagonist Joji s unhealthy obsession with 15 year old Naomi Yes eople have likened it to Lolita This is thematically an easy way to draw Black Tupelo parallels between the two works but this is not enough The two should be able to stand alone in their literary value Some may start to loathe both characters as asychological tit for tat unravels between the two but I have come to realise that reading for leasure might involve suspending your deconstructive skills However my "English Major And English Teacher "major and English teacher couldn t help but analyse and read into all the intricacies of this novel And whilst I think it is okay to read for immersion eually it is the broader concepts and ideas that can be taken away from a novel that can only make us better readers and humans Naomi was Tanizaki s first fiction novel and the original title Chijin no Ai translates into A Fool s Love Very loosely the novel is about the rotagonist s obsessive fascination with Naomi Naomi epitomises what Joji sees as the Western idealisation of beauty seeking to mould her into the erfect image of western influences through fashion beauty Western bodily ideals and form dancing and learning English Naomi has the majestic hysiue of a Westerner her hands are not weak and fragile she has covetable white skin There is a laugh out loud section in the novel where Naomi talks of doing the laundry and if she was to engage in this her fingers would get fat I won t be able to Light In Darkness play theiano What is it you called me Your treasure What ll you do if my hands get all fat And this is Star Wars Be More Vader precisely what makes Naomi a stand alone It is the mocking and satirical humour of Tanizaki that I think gets lost ineople s aversion to the content of the novel Much of the critiue that Tanizaki is alluding to is as important to understand what he is trying to achieve aesthetically in Naomi Joji as the narrator is self referential and metafictional he directly addresses his readers and Latin America in the World preempts our reactions As the novelrogresses the owerplay between Naomi and Joji amplifies and Joji realises the manipulation and deception of Naomi that he cannot fashion her into his own image and she cannot be inned down so easily and arguably acts autonomously of Joji s flattery and objectification He oscillates from derision and aversion to enchantment which may irritate the reader but I think objectification He oscillates from derision and aversion to enchantment which may irritate the reader but I think makes the novel so attune to the Hain: El mundo selk'nam en poesía e historieta psychological I could continue toick apart the novel and I have only brushed the surface but read this is you re interested in

removed she would lose her value The I think of her as fickle and selfish the adorable she becomes and the deeply I am ensnared by her It is difficult to ascertain what uality in Joji is to blame

fidelity is not there can romantic love transpire It might be Disowned by Memory Wordsworth's Poetry of the 1790s possible The emotional and sexual aspects of a romantic relationship are two different but codependent functions Our cultural and moral upbringing has instilled in us the notion that these two are one function only but cases like Joji and Naomiresent us with the robability that erhaps sexual and emotional can be separate Maybe copulation does not dictate emotion Maybe a woman is a woman first and she can be a sexual being without the label of wife Don t misunderstand my intentions I am not defending Naomi s actions I am merely trying to understand Joji s mindset and their unusual marriage unweighed by Sapphire Battersea pride and compromised with acceptance There are a different number of ways to look at their relationship In the end all he ever wanted was to love her fully unconditionally Instead all he did wasut himself deeper and deeper inside her Cold Shoulder Road pocket until he was barely felt at all as light as air as forgettable as innocence She was the master and he the littleet Well at least that s how society would see this However for Joji he has merely done what a husband in love would do accept his wife despite her flaws Is this folly or is this virtue Is he a victim or is he the victor For myself it makes no difference what you think of me I m in love with Naomi. Descends into a comically helpless masochismA literary masterpiece that helped to establish Junichiro Tanizaki as Japan's greatest novelist Naomi is both a hilarious story of one man's obsession and torment and a brilliant evocation of a nation's cultural confusio.
