Overview

The story of a man trapped between the modernity of the Western world and the traditions of Japanese society, this masterpiece from acclaimed author Natsume Soseki illustrates the conflicts of the Meiji era in Japanese history. Daisuke is the educated son of a wealthy family who returns to his parents’ home after graduating from a prestigious university. Detached and apathetic, Daisuke turns down his family’s offer to support him financially so long as he marries a woman of their choosing, and he sinks into laziness. But his refined indolence is shaken when he unexpectedly falls in love with the wife of his best friend and is forced—for the first time—to make a choice that will determine his destiny.

 

La historia de un hombre atrapado entre la modernidad del mundo occidental y las tradiciones de la sociedad japonesa, esta obra maestra escrita por el autor aclamado Natsume Soseki ilustra los conflictos de la era Meiji en la historia japonesa. Daisuke es el hijo educado de una familia rica que regresa a la casa de sus padres después de graduarse de una universidad prestigiosa. Distante y apático, Daisuke rechaza la oferta de su familia para apoyarlo financieramente—siempre y cuando se case con la mujer que ellos escojan—y se hunde en la pereza. Pero su indolencia refinada se agita cuando, de modo inesperado, se enamora de la esposa de su mejor amigo y por primera vez tiene que tomar una decisión que determinará su destino.
