[good point]
Overall it is easy to read, the first half has a lot of conversation with Ogata and Geisha and tempo is good.
.2 Conflict of conflicts is heavily used.
Thinking about the idea of 〓〓〓〓〓isengagement and the eternal life of mankind, going on a trip with a ship to change conversation with the belief or something somehow by yourself. Scenery from the ship. Just because I want to pursue about work and want to get peace and satisfaction, I am saying that I want to get an immortal job but I am busy and my life is monotonous or I do not see much work scenes. I went to Shioda. Walking around the middle of the night.
Do not think about being born with moral defects.
To feel nostalgic feeling through the seaside traffic, feel the clear feeling of loneliness. Thinking that myself is a child of sin and suffering.
To say that I am an idiot. But people forgive it. To say that it was loved by people more than that.
Reason why you can not marry Okae. Danger exists and it becomes double. Also consideration. Also saying that I am not unhappy.
Marriage is sudden but relationship is good and overcoming troubles.
I think that it is impossible to think about the point that it is compatible with pursuit of self and self - depreciation and work that leads to the happiness of the whole human race. But it gets pulled down.
To suffer about the relationship with his father.
[Bad point]
Expressing the prosperity and expression of its depression. I regret that I will not repeat such a life at a later date.
Children get sick.

[Comprehensive evaluation]

It was good to get over the trouble and regain the power to live in nature.

It is said that in Shiga Naoya's novel novel, "the highest peak of modern literature" "the apex of a mental novel", how many people in the real world will live a life like the hero of this work, When I was reading that people such as "Higher Ethnic People" continue to do such a depressed life, there are many things disgusted by fluke. However, I think that the depiction of each person is not so deep as a whole, and the composition of sentences was relatively mediocre. On the contrary, vivid sentences that can infer the conflict of Kensaku's feelings are delicate, with no complaints about psychological description.

Four Parts At the end, he was made to feel uncomfortable without understanding whether Kenshu died or survived, but dare to leave a reverberation without daring to write it, giving the reader a deep impression I think that it was a work that can show the extraordinaryness of the author's sentence expression also in a conclusion.

The hero.The situation of traveling destination was carefully drawn when Kensaku went to Kyoto and Kobe,
I felt like I was going to that place at that time.

[Bad point]
Because it is a long story, it may have been quite difficult to read.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
To put it simply, it is a work of a feeling that depicts the hero's half-life called Kensaku.
Among them, the scene of the main character, Kensaku departing to the coast such as Maiko of Kobe or a salt shop, and the scene of going out to the area of 〓〓〓〓〓ion in Kyoto etc was carefully drawn, the atmosphere there was conveyed well,
There was a part that made me feel like I was walking there.
Also, when he got married later, experienced hardships such as the early childhood of children, and had other hardships or eventually lost his physical condition, at that time his wife, Naoko, whatever happened, There was an expression of the feeling that it was decided to decide to follow, and that part also felt a part which was somewhat unnecessarily finally, probably, there was no other thing in the life of Kensaku,
And I guessed. And, finally, the couple and friends would have had a life after that.

* It was revised in October 2007.

I have read this work in the Shincho Bunko version.

[good point]

〓〓〓Is it never another strange thing?

My hero's Kensaku kept asking for my existence value, it was a novel work. The human environment in which he was located was very complicated, such as the secret of the birth and betrayal of the married wife.
At first glance Kensaku was the impression that he was making it somewhat literal without being able to feel the "strong will" of the introduction sentence,
Accepting all of them, I forgave my wife Naoko, Kenshin's strength was brilliant.

〓〓〓Easy to read normally

Compared with Kawabata Yasunari who was active in the same period,
There is no habit, it is beautiful and easy to read.

[Bad point]

There is nothing in particular.

[Comprehensive evaluation]

I am chased by time, such as work, and the opportunity to see myself is decreasing (?).
Modern people There are things to appeal, it is a masterpiece.
Evaluation will be changed to "very good".
