LE “DECLINAZIONI” DELL’AMORE NELLA LETTERATURA GIAPPONESE MODERNA


Abstract


This article deals with the relationship between love and marriage in three Japanese
authors. At the end of 19th century, the introduction of the idea of monogamy in Japanese
culture created two opposite points of view. On one hand there was Kitamura Tōkoku
(1868-1894) with its romantic ideal and the resulting disillusionment; on the other
hand, Izumi Kyōka (1873-1939) always condemned the institution of marriage as
oppressive to women. Both these views have flown into the vision of marriage proposed
by Tanizaki Jun’ichirō (1886-1965), a great master in exploring and painting conjugal
love and its various aspects.
