In contrast to the I novel's privileging of intellectual ruminations, Mishima's novel
is an action-filled romantic quest, while Oe's stories are striking examples of a
young boy's initiation into manhood through a series of trials. In addition, since all
three stories deal in such obviously fairy-tale discourse, they exemplify a
sampling of the most comprehensive features of each author's alternative to the
wasteland. FESTIVAL DAYS: THE SOUND OF WAVES Because Mishima's

Wave by wave, human consciousness is jostled awake by sound. Your whole self
