This novel is another attempt to challenging the Tale, the ancient literary form by Junichiro Tanizaki, a writing of aesthetism. Setting the Japanese Warring States Period as the background, the author placed a fictional character into the history material mixed with truth and imagination, revealing the unique charm of fictional writing. The Lord of Musashi , as the son of the Kiryu Family who were the Guardian of Musashi area, had been kept as a hostage in the Stag Mountain City since his childhood. When he was thirteen, during the besiege of the Stag Mountain City, The Lord of Musashi witnessed a weird picture of a young girl holding a severed head of her enemy, and since then had an abnormal and life-long sexual addiction......This book features the 38 illustrations by Kimura Shohachi, the famous painter during the Taisho and Showa period, which have thoroughly shown the sensual beauty of Tanizaki's works.
