From the author of Silence this powerful novel of ideas is also a sensitive and moving depiction of the trials of old age set in the central region of Jap. This was a melancholic book which I had some trouble connecting with despite its interesting depictions of Japanese culture What I did enjoy was the symbolism of the volcano linking it to human life The two protagnonists Jinpei and Father Durand were both pretty pathetic characters Jinpei was uite horrible to his wife and sons and was obsessed with the volcano Father Durand was relatively tyrannical too and spent most of the novel trying to prove that Japanese culture and Christianity were incompatible Not the best Japanese novel I ve ever read but it wasn t too bad

I loved Volcano and finished it in just a few days End uses beautiful language to tell a story and delve into 2 men s reflective gaze into their lives Central to the story are the issues of compassionate love or better the lack of it aging death and self worth I found the two main characters fascinating and well brought to life In the character of Jimpei Suda End perfectly captures the fears and dread of a person s whose life s work is on the line and who when looking back on his life sees it was mostly devoid of meaningful relationships In Durand a man who also sees his life s work as a failure and a desire to watch it all burn to the ground The exploration of the inner worlds of these men was the novels greatest element I also enjoyed the use of the volcano itself as both a metaphor for aging and a plot device ever working building up towards an explosive ending Having lived in Japan and visited Kagoshima the city on which the setting borrows from I greatly enjoyed this window into the Japanese experience Another great work by End

Al work in Endo's oeuvre charts the conflicts between them which have explosive results This is the first paperback edition of one of Endo's greatest work. A volcano resembles human life In youth it gives rein to the passions and burns with fire It spurts out lava But when it grows old it assumes the burden of those past evil deeds It turns deathly uiet as we now behold it Nevertheless a human being is not entirely like the volcano When we grow old will cast a backward glance upon our lives becoming fully aware of our mistakes Dr KoriyamaSome people fear no death they even challenged themselves off the limit But for most getting old is like a dream we want to avoid a nightmare You d aware lots of efforts are taken to stay young such as facelifts botox plastic surgery seeking for immortality It s like seeking a bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow Oh come on do you really want to stay alive when your dear friends are gone one by one When the world is getting crazier and crazierI d say just enjoy your old age days think of it as fall season when the leaves are fallen from the trees and the colour has it own beauty which distinguished itself from the other seasons Vulkano itu mewakili kehidupan manusia Saat muda begitu bersemangat dengan nyala api dan muntahan lava yang keluar dari dalam perutnya Namun saat usianya menua begitu diam dan menyepi seakan menangung semua tindakan perusakan yang ia lakukan di masa lalu Walau begitu manusia tidak selalu seperti sebuah vulkano Saat kita beranjak tua kita tidak henti hentinya melihat ke belakang dan menyadari semua kesalahan yang kita perbuat Dr KoriyamaAku kagum pada orang orang yang sepertinya tidak takut pada kematian mereka bahkan menantang sang kematian itu sendiri Merek yang suka olahraga ekstrim atau almarhum Steve Irwin misalnya Namun rasanya ketakutan tersebesar bagi kebanyakan orang adalah menjalani masa tua Tak heran banyak yang rela melakukan apa saja agar tetap muda facelifts botox bedah plastik dan banyak hal lain Menurutku sih ngapain takut dengan masa tua dinikmati saja dan bayangkan masa tua itu seperti musim gugur di luar negeri Warna keemasan ketika daun daun berguguran Warna yang memiliki keindahan sendiri dan membedakannya dari musim musim yang lain
