痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai Free read × 102 Promise to mold her into his ideal companion But as she grows older Joji discovers that Naomi is far from the naïve girl of his fantasies And in Tanizaki’s masterpiece of lurid obsession passion uickly descends into comically helpless masochis. The literal translation of the original would be Idiot s Love but this might not sound very attractive to English speaking people Idiotic Love or Foolish Love might work but using the main female character s name is an acceptable alternative I read this in Japanese and I am not familiar with any of the English translation It looks like there are several translations but I don t see translator s name on some editions here on GR so it s hard to tell I guess it s hard to appreciate a book that was written almost a century ago in another country I see the book intro says hilarious story but the book is not meant to be funny At least back when this was written the story was completely serious Silly foolish yes But not hilarious not comical Obsessive yes And sad Readers might benefit from reading the same author s In Praise of Shadows to better understand the background culture of this novel

痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai Free read × 102 Junichiro Tanizaki’s Naomi is both a hilarious story of one man’s obsession and a brilliant reckoning of a nation’s cultural confusion   When twenty eight year old Joji first lays eyes upon the teenage waitress Naomi he is instantly smitten. Naomi is Junichiro Tanizaki s stunningly evocative work exhibiting a man s romantic erotic obsession with his unfaithful wife I wanted to boast to everyone This woman is mine Take a look at my treasure This is a tale of agony emotionally and sexually Joji a successful professional almost in his thirties is bewitched by a modest and innocent eurasian waitress of fifteen so much so that the he propositions her and takes her guardianship as his own Initially unsure of what he wanted they start off being friends but as men and women often do when they live under one roof they become man and wife They start as the very image of happiness and he spoils her and educates her as one would do to a pet domesticated from the wild that is until the curtain drops and his pet bares her fangs and reveals the beast inside untamed His little pet his Naomi was never a pet but rather a puppeteer deploying her masterful strings of deceit and stringing him along with her lies The image of chastity shatters and out comes a harlot so wily yet so terrifyingly breathtaking In his contempt he falls further into depravity and a giant passion takes hold of him I realized that a woman s face grows beautiful the it incurs a man s hatred Joji becomes blinded by love and lust repeatedly experiencing suffering and betrayal at her hand he marches on unceasingly in his pathological desire for her beauty And so little by little he grows accustomed to the pain to the torment he becomes numb and he emerges a docile man completely under the spell of his little Naomi I ve known all along that she s fickle and selfish if those faults were removed she would lose her value The I think of her as fickle and selfish the adorable she becomes and the deeply I am ensnared by her It is difficult to ascertain what uality in Joji is to blame Perhaps lechery Maybe stubbornness Or is it self deception As an introverted person he knows he does not enjoy her personality especially when they are with other people He even admits that her level of intelligence is a disappointment to him However every time they escape the prying eyes of society when only her and him exist she transforms into the most beautiful creature he can ever imagine The Naomi that matters to him is the Naomi who is alone with him the Naomi of other people he does not care about Is this enough He envisions a closed off union with only the two of them like pet and master man and wife nobody else as if to say let the world burn but give me Naomi Romantic love is a fragile jealous and possessive concept that needs trust to blossom while in turn for trust to thrive it needs fidelity But what if fidelity is not there can romantic love transpire It might be possible The emotional and sexual aspects of a romantic relationship are two different but codependent functions Our cultural and moral upbringing has instilled in us the notion that these two are one function only but cases like Joji and Naomi present us with the probability that perhaps sexual and emotional can be separate Maybe copulation does not dictate emotion Maybe a woman is a woman first and she can be a sexual being without the label of wife Don t misunderstand my intentions I am not defending Naomi s actions I am merely trying to understand Joji s mindset and their unusual marriage unweighed by pride and compromised with acceptance There are a different number of ways to look at their relationship In the end all he ever wanted was to love her fully unconditionally Instead all he did was put himself deeper and deeper inside her pocket until he was barely felt at all as light as air as forgettable as innocence She was the master and he the little pet Well at least that s how society would see this However for Joji he has merely done what a husband in love would do accept his wife despite her flaws Is this folly or is this virtue Is he a victim or is he the victor For myself it makes no difference what you think of me I m in love with Naomi Bauhaus (BASIC ART) eight year old Joji first lays 404 - Document introuvable eyes upon the teenage waitress Naomi he is instantly smitten.

痴人の愛 Chijin no Ai Free read × 102 By her exotic almost Western appearance Determined to transform her into the perfect wife and to whisk her away from the seamy underbelly of post World War I Tokyo Joji adopts and ultimately marries Naomi paying for English and music lessons that. I write this with my experience as an Asian woman and my connection to South Korea in mind but the broader fascination of the West that presents itself in Naomi is something that piued my interest in this novel A cursory examination of Jun ichir Tanizaki s Naomi will undoubtedly perturb readers a novel that centres on the protagonist Joji s unhealthy obsession with 15 year old Naomi Yes people have likened it to Lolita This is thematically an easy way to draw parallels between the two works but this is not enough The two should be able to stand alone in their literary value Some may start to loathe both characters as a psychological tit for tat unravels between the two but I have come to realise that reading for pleasure might involve suspending your deconstructive skills However my English major and English teacher self couldn t help but analyse and read into all the intricacies of this novel And whilst I think it is okay to read for immersion eually it is the broader concepts and ideas that can be taken away from a novel that can only make us better readers and humans Naomi was Tanizaki s first fiction novel and the original title Chijin no Ai translates into A Fool s Love Very loosely the novel is about the protagonist s obsessive fascination with Naomi Naomi epitomises what Joji sees as the Western idealisation of beauty seeking to mould her into the perfect image of western influences through fashion beauty Western bodily ideals and form dancing and learning English Naomi has the majestic physiue of a Westerner her hands are not weak and fragile she has covetable white skin There is a laugh out loud section in the novel where Naomi talks of doing the laundry and if she was to engage in this her fingers would get fat I won t be able to play the piano What is it you called me Your treasure What ll you do if my hands get all fat And this is precisely what makes Naomi a stand alone It is the mocking and satirical humour of Tanizaki that I think gets lost in people s aversion to the content of the novel Much of the critiue that Tanizaki is alluding to is as important to understand what he is trying to achieve aesthetically in Naomi Joji as the narrator is self referential and metafictional he directly addresses his readers and preempts our reactions As the novel progresses the powerplay between Naomi and Joji amplifies and Joji realises the manipulation and deception of Naomi that he cannot fashion her into his own image and she cannot be pinned down so easily and arguably acts autonomously of Joji s flattery and objectification He oscillates from derision and aversion to enchantment which may irritate the reader but I think ultimately makes the novel so attune to the psychological I could continue to pick apart the novel and I have only brushed the surface but read this is you re interested in 1920s Japan power relations between the genders the psychology of relationships body fetishisation egos jealousy reconstructing and rethinking bodies
