review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Junichirō TanizakiThe Key Diary of a Mad Old Man

The Key Diary of a Mad Old Man review º 3 These two modern classics by the great Japanese novelist Junichiro Tanizaki both utilize the diary form to explore the authority that love and sex have over allIn The Key a middle aged professor plies his wife of thirty years with any. The Key is perhaps the ideal point of entry to the world of Tanizaki the perfect encapsulation of his themes and style Employing a twin diary format The Key oscillates between the private diaries of a middle aged man Kenmochi and his beautiful wife Ikuko revealing the perverse relationship they share along with that of their comparatively unattractive adult daughter Toshiko and her would be lover Kimura the true love interest of Ikuko Kenmochi is getting on in years and no longer has what it takes to satisfy his wife conseuently he finds himself subtly creating situations where she is liable to cheat on him He doesn t believe she actually will being a self described traditional woman who abides by traditional values but the very prospect of it excites him The jealous he becomes the higher his libido rises as does his blood pressure The perversity is both obvious eg Kenmochi takes nude photographs of his unconscious wife and then asks Kimura to develop them and subtle eg Ikuko slyly exposes the bare toes on her feet arousing her husband s foot fetish but the complexity of these entangled relationships is by and large handled subtly with the layers of deception piling into their respective diaries each of which they suspect the other to be secretly reading thus making the veracity of the contents extremely suspect forcing the reader to ponder the truth right along with the characters Tanizaki s characters are mostly masochists and The Key exemplifies this A uote from the novel suggests how convoluted these masochistic feelings and actions become in his work I m the one who lent your husband the Polaroid camera he told me I suppose he wanted to search out every detail of your body but than that I think he wanted to make me suffer I think he likes having me develop the films he likes exciting me and making me fight a terrible temptation And he relishes the thought that my own feelings are reflected in you till you re as tormented as I am It s cruel of him to do this to us but I still don t want to betray him I see how you are suffering and I want to suffer with you I want to suffer and deeply The mother and daughter are essentially vying for the same man and here Tanizaki adds a common theme in his work the tension between the traditional and the modern The mother wears traditional Japanese garb kimonos and such while the daughter wears strictly western clothes Interestingly as Ikuko begins to see Kimura she too begins to dress in western clothes thus the corruption of her fidelity is linked to the modern western culture Tanizaki like many of his contemporary writers held a nostalgic longing for traditional Japanese culture and as such I believe this reading is consistent with his worldview I would be all set to proclaim The Key one of Tanizaki s very greatest novels were it not for the final 15 pages For reasons I won t begin to fathom he decided to explain everything away in extreme detail thus destroying the mysterious tone he had created through the many layers of deceptions Certainly some of the conclusions are fascinating but they were already implicit in what he had previously written By comparison Ichikawa s film adaptation Odd Obsession changes the ending drastically or to be precise it looks past the ending of the novel and imagines what might happen to these characters It s a devilish finale in keeping with the layered deceptions found elsewhere in the novel and a satisfying conclusion to the story than the one Tanizaki has supplied Nevertheless the film never gets into the psychologies of its characters with the same relish that Tanizaki s diary form allows but that is in keeping with Ichikawa s mode of adaptation which relies on the concrete and external than the psychological

    PDF KINDLE (The Key Diary of a Mad Old Man) By Junichirō Tanizaki 25 stars Personally i prefer the key over the diary of a mad old man For me it is interesting to read on the key as it plays on the dynamics of a married couple and it is twistedly heartwarming to see a married man trying to ignite passion in a very unconventional way The diary of a mad old man on the other hand is plain perverse There is nothing to like or relatable for me in it
