Ba Ra Kei by Yukio Mishima
Book DescriptionBa-ra-kei is the fierce and lyrical testament to the legendary Japanese writer Yukio Mishima, who shocked the world when he committed ritual suicide in 1970. The year marked Japan's new economic confidence, and Mishima accused the country of being 'drunk with prosperity.' Many in Japan regarded the suicide as a sensational act. However, with the publication of Mishima's final cycle of novels - conceived eight years prior to his death-it was revealed that his suicide was a carefully considered act, a gesture of historical implication in accord with the morbid and esoteric aesthetic that pervades his writing.

Author Biography - Yukio Mishima
Eikoh Hosoe is a leading Japanese photographer with an outstanding international reputation. His work is included in major collections throughout the world. In the early 1960's he was a member of the pioneering group VIVO, who transformed modern Japanese photography by asserting their own unique Japanese style. His first book, Man and Woman, and Embrace, which followed, both radically changed the possibilities of nude photography. His more recent book, The World of Gaudi, is equally as innovative in the realm of architectural photography. He is currently a professor at the Tokyo Institute of Polytechnics.
