Nippon Culture   º 

A lecture by Dr. Christian CHAPPELOW

Yukio MISHIMA (1925–1970), an author and a colorful personality from the post-war era, attempted an unsuccessful coup d’état in 1970 with the goal of restoring the emperor’s power in Japan. MISHIMA’s public persona and his demands for imperial tradition continue to raise questions today. In an annotated reading of the author’s texts, Dr. Christian CHAPPELOW addresses the complex “MISHIMA” phenomenon.
