The Silent Cry traces the uneasy relationship between two brothers who return to their ancestral home, a village in densely forested western Japan. While one brother tries to sort out the after-effects of a friend's suicide and the birth of a retarded son, the other embarks on a quixoticmission to incite an uprising among the local youth. Oe's description of this brother's messianic struggle to save a disintegrating local culture and economy from the depredations of a Korean wheeler-dealer called "The Emperor of the Supermarkets" is as chillingly pertinent today as it was whenfirst published in 1967. Powerful and daring, The Silent Cry is a thoroughly compelling classic of world literature.… (mais)

A dark path into memory, both in life and generational, that digs into questions about politics, faith and self. A remarkable, unsettling novel. ( )
  ephemeral_future | Aug 20, 2020 |
I've thought long and hard about what to say concerning this modern Japanese novel. I ought to have loved it or at least admired it because it was written by a prominent Nobel prize winner, praised by many. However, the book left me ambivalent. I cared not for the writing, which seemed to me to be a stream of consciousness with no purpose. I cared not for the story nor the characters. I probably "missed" the entire point of the novel although there are some simplistic themes: are the old days really better than modern day? can one really go home again? My question: will this book ever end? After 394 pages, it did; wrapped up in a tiny neat little package like 75% of other novels. 394 pages 2 1/2 stars ( )

Based on some reviews I read online, I was expecting this book to be hard work. Most reviewers complained that the book is miserable, the characters unpleasant and unsympathetic. While there isn't much in the way of joy or levity in the pages, I felt some sympathy for the main characters. Their lives are hung about with tragedy and hard decisions, and their relations with each other are corrupted as a result. Mitsu and his wife are struggling to make sense of their child's birth defect. Mitsu's remaining brother Taka is trying to find a place for himself in the world. He is angry and misguided, and the least likeable of the characters, but he stands as an example of those in Japanese society unwilling to accept their post war subjugation who seek to establish their relevance through violence. Mitsu is weak and floundering in depression. I wanted him to stand up to his brother, but could see why he didn't, in his self-imposed role of guardian of his family's heritage and shame. Largely set in the dying village of their youth in winter, the sense of claustrophobia mounts as Mitsu, prevented by snow from returning to Tokyo, retreats into isolation and Taka exploits the pent up frustration of the village's young men. As events escalate, Mitsu seems on the brink of losing everything, but then Taka makes an unexpected move.

From this novel, the only one of Ōe's I have read so far, it is clear to me why Ōe was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, while his contemporary Mishima wasn't. Ōe's prose, in comparison to Mishima's, is poetic and graceful. While there are political messages in the story, they aren't thrust down the reader's throat. The novel is an exploration of human fragility, of our responses to uncontrollable events, of the choices we make in life. It examines the stories we tell ourselves and the way we manipulate memory to both form our self-image and justify it. It considers the nature of truth and whether we ever truly know it or speak it. It documents events that demonstrate social compliance and the fallout when such compliance is exploited for ill. The Nobel judges cited The Silent Cry as a key work in the imagined world Ōe created across his writing, 'where life and myth condense to form a disconcerting picture of the human predicament'. Although it was a difficult read at times, I loved it. ( )

In this strange book form the japanese Nobel prize winner a miserable man, living in an unhappy marriage and have a disabled baby, travelling with his brother to their home village just to face the history of their family and his worthless life till the shocking end.
Too much typos in the hungarian edition. ( )
  TheCrow2 | Apr 25, 2014 |
Detta är en filosoferande roman som jag inte fullt ut har förstått, tror jag. Jag kan inte riktigt begripa vart författaren vill komma med den. Och så tycker jag att de eftertänksamma partierna blir alltför många och långa. Men det är skrivet på ett sätt att texten får en inneboende "mysticitet", och en dragningskraft som är svår att stå emot.
Så man vill läsa vidare och veta hur det ska gå.
Men hur gick det? Vad var det som hände? Och varför? Upprepade sig historien? För tredje gången, eller? ( )

In het duister vlak voor de dageraad lag ik wakker te worden. In mijn bewustzijn, waar iets van een pijnlijke droom was blijven hangen, tastte ik zoekend rond naar een gewaarwording van hete lust.
