This is an interesting love triangle! Etsuko is a woman whose husband has died so she is invited to and moves to the home of Yakichi, her father-in-law, where she resides as a mistress while secretly being in love with Saburo, the young household man-servant.

I found this story very intriguing as I was trying to piece together the relationship of the various individuals living within the household. The story seemed very Japanese in the way in which it was told (for instance, the hierarchy within the household and the festival observance), but the feelings were universal. Etsuko tried to deal with what she thought was a secret love, but, more importantly, both she and Yakichi were trying to deal with their individual jealousy.

I liked the tone of the story and its gentle flow as well. I could not guess what would happen so it kept up my interest to the end. This is the second book by this author I've read, and I look forward to reading more of his work. ( )

It was very fleeting. It was very cold; sterile almost like Etsuko. There are some funny points, but I was mostly disappointed.

Though lacking his potboilers, I think it would be interesting to contrast and to compare "Thirst for Love" with "After the Banquet," in terms of the characterizations of Mishima's female protagonists.

Interestingly, I found the 1967 B&W film adaptation by Koreyoshi Kurahara, which is available through the Criterion Collection, to be superior to the original novel. If I could take a guess, I'd say that the most vivid passages and the tension that run throughout could only be truly realized through film. Fortunately, there was this one—which I absolutely recommend—and fortunately for Mishima fans there are film and TV adaptations of almost all of Mishima's novels.

Verhaal van een jonge Japanse weduwe die de minnares is van haar schoonvader; beklemmende naturalistische inslag; jaloersheid overheerst. Sterk psychologisch beschrijvend, zeker naar het einde toe: voor elke gesproken zin een pagina beschrijving van de emoties en de omstandigheden. ( )

Mishima's only female protagonist comes alive with startling clarity. Thirst for Love is one of the quieter, less twisted, of his early novels that I've read, though it is still very dark and uncompromising. There's still lots of forbidden love and murder. Mishima returns to the themes of obsessive love, of a futile search for salvation, or desperate acts. ( )
  kougogo | Jan 17, 2010 |
This early work by Mishima has passion aplenty, a narrative sweep with an amazing sense of inevitability where you're like "yes, it's exactly that kind of emotional torrent that makes it seem natural and/or liberatingly unreal to SPOILER ALERT totally mattock a dude." It also has crystalline moments, a deep and abiding sorrow, and at least one transcendent jewel of an observation, when Etsuko wakes up in the middle of the night: "an extended period of sleep was a duty she still owed the coming day."


The most interesting thing about it to me, though, is the way it's illuminated by a personality - the strength with which, in other words, the author's selfhood shines through. Mishima-in-popular culture is so twisted, septic, tragic at very best and fascist at worst - but this is a quiet person, a serious person, a person who is heartbroken at the brokenness of this old world and yearns to bursting after something purer and full beyond belief with moral clarity; frantic, if the world doesn't allow for snowflake bishonen clarity, that it at least incorporate katana-like acts of self-destruction, that it allows the self to be cleaner than the universe. So much of what was appealing and awful about old Japan, so desired and so impossible. He didn't use the "snow" kanji in "Yukio," but he feels like the kind of person who might have. Carry a mirror next to your heart; take it out often, look in your eyes and gauge the state of your soul. That's what it feels like to read this book, a little. ( )

The mob behind her pushed again, causing her fingernails to gouge into Saburo's back.
Etsuko felt his blood dripping between her fingers.
His was an ageing process that worked from the inside out—an ageing process like that which might attack a stuffed eagle, its insides hollowed by white ants.
Beggars show you their wounds to make you sorry for them. They're horrible. Madam is like some kind of proud beggar.
She reached out her hands and held it off. It was Saburo's back. She savored the touch of his flesh. She savored the majestic warmth of him.
