The Heart Of The Hunter

Is is imprisonment in one moment of time, confinement in one sharp uncompromising deed or aspect of ourselves. Death is exclusion from renewal of our present-day selves. Neither heaven nor hell are hereafter. Hell is time arrested within and refusing to join in the movement of wind and stars. Heaven is the boulder rock unrolled to let new life out. It is man restored to all four of his seasons rounding for eternity" p.

This is great, I loved the flowery and lengthy descriptions and most of the book was very captivating although the last section of the book i e the last story really fell flat for me and felt incredibly dated.

The religious overtones became a bit annoying at times, also it isn't so much a novel than it is a collection of three distinct stories with some interlinking characters and themes.

It was interesting to see how the filmakers of Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence managed to tie and cleverly merge these stories into a single work. I have to say that i found the movie, overall, to be superior to the book. Oshima took the best aspects of the book, elevated them, and left them with his own particular style and tone.

The book and the movie are very different pieces, and both are perfectly enjoyable reads on their own. Aug 04, Jason Prodoehl rated it really liked it Shelves: history. There are times in this book you will wonder what kind of strange tangent the story is taking. It's worth it. This author is so incredible in his descriptions, and he finds a way to describe complex emotions.

It also makes me see beyond the moment and the action, to what is happening to the heart. Do note this book describes events during WW II. Even though the Japanese were the "enemy" of the Allied forces, I was surprised and pleased that the author describes those fighting against as human be There are times in this book you will wonder what kind of strange tangent the story is taking.

Dec 30, Milena rated it really liked it. Had I not learnt lately that death is not something that happens at the end of our life? It is imprisonment in one moment of time, confinement in one sharp uncompromising deed or aspect or ourselves. I guess the British, as well as the Japanese, having lived on their islands for such a long time, have developed a peculiar mentality codified by the rules of honour and ideals that might seem difficult to grasp. However, this book is a magni Had I not learnt lately that death is not something that happens at the end of our life?

However, this book is a magnificent portrayal of a few semi-fictional situations in Japanese war camps where the ideals from both sides are confronted on a daily basis. Boys will be boys , and when those boys go to war, every single one of them, may his name be Lawrence, Cellier, Hara or Yonoi, will have to find an answer whether his actions are liable to his own values or to those of his nation. Lawrence e devo dire che il libro, composto da tre storie indipendenti, mi ha consentito di approfondire aspetti solo accennati nell'opera di Oshima.

Assolutamente consigliato a chiunque desideri approfondire il tema dello scontro tra culture. May 04, Katherine Hebert rated it it was amazing. Elegant, philosophical, character-driven, truly horrific and historic plot involving the Japanese invasion of South Pacific islands and their POW camps. Well-written and a riveting story.

For the most part this is brilliantly written, the strong spiritual message all important but never overstated. The themes are complex, but at base describe the net of forces which oblige whole peoples, let alone inidividuals, to act in accordance with urges that seem stronger than themselves. Thus, in 'The Bar of Shadow' the Japanese officer practically in charge of the starved prisoners, Hara, is acting monstrously according to any humane standards, but by his own, he is beating them out of the For the most part this is brilliantly written, the strong spiritual message all important but never overstated.

Thus, in 'The Bar of Shadow' the Japanese officer practically in charge of the starved prisoners, Hara, is acting monstrously according to any humane standards, but by his own, he is beating them out of the shame they must feel throgh having allowed themselves to be allowed to be taken prisoner. Lawrence, tortured and kept in the dark for weeks, understands this and it is this that leads him - much to the disgust of his ex fellow prisoners, to plead for Hara's life when he is due to be executed by the Allies.

In 'The Seed and The Sower' we have the story of Jaques Celliers, brilliant warrior, handsome, bold, a success at everything he does, who feels that at heart he is 'nothing'. His courage is in part despair, for he hopes that he will be killed in action. This sense of worthlessness dates from the time when he knows:- 'I had a brother once and I betrayed him'. The story follows the odd synchronicities in the relations between Celliers,his disabled brother always unnamed and the scapegoat springbok Stompie and what Celliers believes to be his duty in sacrificing himself for the other prisoners at the camp in Java.

I thought the only weak story to be 'The Sword and the Doll'. This is ironical, in view of the fact that it is Van der Post's attempt to incorporate the female perspective, but I have to say I thought that some of the opinions here border on the absurd. Overall, though, a brilliant book.
