It is often said that women deceive men But from my experience I d say that it doesn t start with the woman deceiving the man Rather the man without any prompting rejoices in being deceived when he falls in love with a woman everything she says whether true or not sounds adorable to our ears I know what you are up to but I ll let you tempt me J ji s LolitaJ ji is a salaryman He grew up on a wealthy farm in the country and has no desire to return He enjoys the benefits of living in a city He is obsessed with breaking from tradition and adopting Western ways He is twenty eight when he first sees the beautiful fifteen year old siren working as a caf hostess Naomi is docile and meek and a plan begins to formulate in J ji s mind He will sculpt her into what he desires He visits her family and is shocked by how easily they agree to allow him to take her into his home Naomi reminds him of the silent screen actress Mary Pickford Her skin is pale much lighter than most Japanese girls He encourages her to fix her hair like the actress He buys her western clothes and begins to train her to be the perfect modern girl Mary Pickford is the prototype for NaomiSo in the beginning he has complete control There are certainly Pygmalion elements to J ji s obsession with this sculpted creature He is a man of honor even though the circumstances do warrant a raised eyebrow He does not debauch her He bathes her He enjoys watching the burgeoning woman emerge from the slender reed he first brought home For me Naomi was the same as a fruit that I d cultivated myself I d labored hard and spared no pains to bring that piece of fruit to its present magnificent ripeness and it was only proper that I the cultivator should be the one to taste it J ji s desire grows as he continues to deny himself the pleasures her body has been so carefully designed to administer to him There is a shift in power that begins very subtly but then becomes a full revolution Naomi is embracing her modernization and has discovered that men find her desirable Naomi embracing her modernization in the 1967 movie adaptation called The Love of an Idiot The precious sacred ground of her skin had been imprinted forever with the muddy tracks of two thieves The Shimizu white peach has been bruised His investment has been stolen mere moments before he intended to finally enjoy the fruits of his labor He has been deceived He has all the normal reactions to finding this out I realized that a woman s face grows beautiful the it incurs a man s hatred He hates her He despises her He misses her He loves her Night is usually associated with darkness but to me night always brought thoughts of the whiteness of Naomi s skin Unlike the bright shadowless whiteness of noon it was a whiteness wrapped in tatters amid soiled unsightly dusty uilts and that drew me to it all the The complexity of desire It is impossible to have control as long as a coveted passion exists Does J ji adapt or does he snap like a dry bamboo twig It is fascinating watching this shifting of power and what he is willing to do what he is willing to put up with just to stay in Naomi s presence The doll slave becomes the master Junichiro Tanizaki spurred the Westernization of JapanThe novel is set in 1924 but the book was published in 1947 right in the midst of a radical shift in Japanese culture from the traditions that had governed their behavior for centuries to a westernized version Junichiro Tanizaki s book had an enormous impact on Japanese women who were just beginning to reject the traditional housewife role and embrace the Western idea of female freedom The absurd aspects of the Japanese male tendency to dream of being seduced by a siren is examined with a certain level of sympathy There are several abnormal situations in the book but what I have come to know with knowing people that what may seem abnormal actually exists in very normal circumstances People define relationships very differently The expanded status aspect of a Facebook account shows the complexity of defining our connections with people Is there a moral to this story If you think that my account is foolish please go ahead and laugh If you think that there s a moral in it then please let it serve as a lesson For myself it makes no difference what you think of me I m in love with Naomi Ultimately wouldn t we all be happier if we didn t let people outside of a relationship dictate our own feelings for the person who for better or worse is the person we love This is a Japanese spin on a Nabokovian theme though published before Lolita of the love and desire of forbidden fruit and the potential for that love to prove toxic What will you do to be with the one you loveIf you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

review 痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai 痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai Free download ´ 104 Read & Download Ö PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook â Junichirō Tanizaki Y from the seamy underbelly of post World War I Tokyo and to mold her into his ideal wife But when the two come together to indulge their shared passion for Western culture Joji discovers that Naomi is far from being the naïve girl of his fantasies and his passion. 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 that presents itself in Naomi is something that piued my interest in this novel A cursory examination of Jun ichir Tanizaki s Naomi will undoubtedly perturb readers a novel that centres on the protagonist Joji s unhealthy obsession with 15 year old Naomi Yes people have likened it to Lolita This is thematically an easy way to draw 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 a psychological tit for tat unravels between the two but I have come to realise that reading for pleasure might involve suspending your deconstructive skills However my English major and English teacher self 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 protagonist s obsessive fascination with Naomi Naomi epitomises what Joji sees as the Western idealisation of beauty seeking to mould her into the perfect image of western influences through fashion beauty Western bodily ideals and form dancing and learning English Naomi has the majestic physiue 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 play the piano What is it you called me Your treasure What ll you do if my hands get all fat And this is precisely what makes Naomi a stand alone It is the mocking and satirical humour of Tanizaki that I think gets lost in people 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 preempts our reactions As the novel progresses the powerplay 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 pinned 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 ultimately makes the novel so attune to the psychological I could continue to pick apart the novel and I have only brushed the surface but read this is you re interested in 1920s Japan power relations between the genders the psychology of relationships body fetishisation egos jealousy reconstructing and rethinking bodies
