OE, KENZABURO - The silent cry

Title: The silent cry
Description: Kodansha International, 1974, (First edition), 274 blz., Porto 6,00 euro NL, ISBN 0870112325, Dikke linnen gebonden hardback. Stofomslag lichte slijtage. Ex libiris en aantekening op schutblad. Binnenwerk verder onberispelijk. 1e druk., 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..
