Secret History of the Lord of Musashi

by Junichiro Tanizaki

Secret History of the Lord of Musashi Synopsis

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.
