As the friendship grows and the narrator learns more about the man he so admires, he is increasingly intrigued by his hidden history.

    Limelite: Another dark psychological novel sharing the theme of isolation or loneliness told mostly through the two main character's thoughts, but more beautifully written.

Kokoro is one of those books that takes on a different meaning every time - when you read it in your teenage years, your adult life...or when you are on the verge of Death. You may recognize yourself, or some aspects at least, in the characters portrayed - such is the ubiquity of the human condition - if you ever take up the challenge. Are human beings really truly unique?

Everyone should own a copy of this, full stop. ( )

Japanese author Natsume Suseki, published 1914, Translation by Edwin McClellan. The translator talks about the translation before the story starts. I found this nice and wish more translators comment on their translations. The story starts with a friendship between a young man and an older man. The next part is a letter that the older man writes to the young man. The title means heart or the heart of things or feelings. A theme is isolation. It also looks at changes in Japan and changes in roles of women and generations. There is a exploration of loneliness, isolation, and suicide. ( )

Delicate in addressing issues such as the indignity of death, sin and redemption, existentialism, self-recrimination and misanthropy, it is a narrative of tragedy that unfolds against the backdrop of the Meiji era. An obsolete way of life rigidly handcuffed by years of self-imposed isolation, a hesitant Japan embraces the welcoming embrace of the modern while waging an inner war with itself.

A mysterious middle-aged man, Sensei, meets the protagonist casually and maintains a protected mentoring bond. Sensei confesses the mistakes of the past in a letter to the young man, his protégé learns to look beyond the horror of delaying bodily death and accepting the natural order of things. A spiritual investigation into the corruption of the human soul. ( )

This book left a somewhat bad aftertaste. Different time, culture, and belief system, yes. However, all characters either keep to themselves (our storyteller, K, and Sensei), or kept in the dark in a sad excuse of preservation of their happiness (Ojōsan and Okusan, two women). Deeply affected by their own choices- to keep all the feelings to themselves, - K and Sensei lead themselves down the "inevitable" path of ending their lives. Frustrated and struggling for years, unable to share their feelings even with those who they consider their friends, or, in case of Sensei, his wife, they suffer. I was disturbed by the sheer amount of assumptions and inner thoughts they deliberately trap themselves in. But again, I cannot judge a different culture, but it was hard for me to understand it. ( )

Could that delicate and complex instrument that lies in the human breast ever really produce a reading that was absolutely clear and truthful, like a clock's hands pointing to numbers on its dial?
