Description
Kenzaburo Oe, winner of the Noble Prize for Literature, is one of the world's finest writers, and in Rouse Up, O Young Men of the New Age he delivers a virtuoso novel of extraordinary power, touching on his familiar themes of family, responsibility, the nature of literary inspiration, and the unique experience of parenting a disabled child. K is a famous writer living in Tokyo with his wife and three children, one of whom was born with a brain anomaly that has left him mentally disabled. A highly cerebral man who often retreats from real life into abstraction -- in this case, the poetry of William Blake -- K is confronted by his wife with the reality that this child, Eeyore, has been doing disturbing things: behaving aggressively, asserting that he's dead, even brandishing a knife at his mother. As K struggles to understand his family and assess his own place in it, he must also reevaluate himself -- his relationship with his father, the political stances he has taken, the responsibilities of artists and writers in society.

display_descriptionWise and illuminating, Rouse Up O Young Men of the New Age! is a masterpiece from one of the world's finest writers, Kenzaburo Oe -- winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. K is a famous writer living in Tokyo with his wife and three children, one of whom is mentally disabled. K's wife confronts him with the information that this child, Eeyore, has been doing disturbing things -- behaving aggressively, asserting that he's dead, even brandishing a knife at his mother -- and K, given to retreating from reality into abstraction, looks for answers in his lifelong love of William Blake's poetry. As K struggles to understand his family and assess his responsibilities within it, he must also reevaluate himself -- his relationship with his own father, the political stances he has taken, the duty of artists and writers in society. A remarkable portrait of the inexpressible bond between this father and his damaged son, Rouse Up O Young Men of the New Age! is the work of an unparalleled writer at his sparkling best.
