This book remarkably succeeds in revealing the meaning of Mishima's intention in his life and work. To many people Mishima's aestheticism may seem to be nothing but perversion, and his political attitude reactionary. But John Nathan goes beyond stereotyping Mishima's achievements in his life and work as such, and gives a very balanced overview of Mishima, not just as a Japanese literary author (bungo, as you may call him in Japanese), but as a global artist. It is also interesting to find his personal episodes with Mishima, as a translator of Mishima's work.
