商品の説明

内容紹介

The eight stories that comprise this collection were all written in the 1970s and 80s, yet vividly evoke early 17th-century Japan, when peace finally reigned after centuries of warfare. It was a period of upheaval and change as the rulers carved out their territories and clan politics were full of intrigue, rivalry and betrayals. The samurai were still valued for their swordsmanship, and were a cut above the peasants, artisans, and merchants in the social hierarchy. Without battles to fight, however, they struggled to retain their sense of pride and meaning in life as they devoted themselves to mundane jobs, marriage and family. The occasional flash of the sword and samurai discipline were tempered by the unexpected intrusion of human interaction. Sympathies, conspiracies, kindnesses, enmities-all kinds of odd relationships were formed and conflicts resolved in surprising ways. These tales are colorful, atmospheric, exciting, tender, violent and gently ironic.

The Bamboo Sword and Other Samurai Tales is published as part of the Japanese Literature Publishing Project (JLPP), which is run by the Japanese Literature Publishing and Promotion Center (J-Lit Center) on behalf of the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan.

5つ星のうち 3.0 藤沢ワールド  2007/1/10
形式:ハードカバー
 私は藤沢周平の小説をアメリカ人の主人にもぜひ味わってもらいたくてこの英文版を購入しました。情熱的に愛を表現する文化とは違い、日本の武士家庭、または町人家庭の穏やかな、静かな夫婦愛、家族愛が英語版でも楽しめました。

 悲哀、ささやかな幸せ、苦悩、また「そうそう」と思わずあいづちをうつ日常の喧騒... それらを身近に感じながらこの本の作品を新鮮な感覚で読むことができました。ぜひ他の作品もこの本のGavin Frew氏によって翻訳されればと願っています。

5つ星のうち 5.0 An exciting and engaging collection of remarkable samurai stories 2006/5/3
By Midwest Book Review - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
The Bamboo Sword And Other Samurai Tales by Shuhei Fujisawa is a superb collection of eight intrinsically interesting and truly evocative stories inspired by two popular Japanese films: "The Twilight Samurai" and "The Hidden Blade". These tales of the samurai include: A Passing Shower; All For A Melon; Kozuru; Shinza, The Samurai; Out Of Luck; The Runaway Stallion; Dancing Hands; and the title piece, The Bamboo Sword. Shuhei Fujisawa has written an exciting and engaging collection of remarkable samurai stories. that will grasp and hold the readers total attention from beginning to end. The Bamboo Sword is very highly recommended to all readers intrigued by tales of the eastern regions and the orient in general, and those who enjoy Japanese samurai lore in particular.

5つ星のうち 5.0 War and Peace and Love 2009/10/1
By Zack Davisson - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
There has been a renaissance lately in the samurai genre, from directors like Yamada Yoji (The Twilight Samurai, The Hidden Blade, Love and Honor) and Kurotsuchi Mitsuo (The Samurai I Loved). All of these films have something in common, in that the stories and style are drawn from the same source, namely the short stories of Fujisawa Shuhei.

Fujisawa was something of a romanticist, writing stories of a distant past that he never personally experienced. Born in 1927 and dying in 1997, Fujisawa was a personal witness to the rise and fall and rise and fall of Japan, both in WWII and the Bubble Economy era. As opposed to these eras of conflict, Fujisawa's stories generally take place in the 200-year span of peace known as the Edo period, a time when the military ideals of the samurai had faded, and when only a few still held on to the principals of the aristocratic warrior class.

"The Bamboo Sword and Other Samurai Tales" collects eight of Fujisawa's short stories in this genre. It was the sixteenth collection selected for the Japanese Literature Publishing Project, a Government-funded project that encouraged the translation and publishing overseas of works of literature that were considered to be core to the understanding of the Japanese people and contributed to world culture. The title story of the collection, "The Bamboo Sword" became the basis for the Oscar-winning "Twilight Samurai."

Instead of the great movers and shakers, the power players, Fujisawa focuses on the low-ranking pawns, the members of construction crews and horse groomers, those who technically held samurai status but without the money and prestige of their lords. He has the ability as an author to take us back into this time, to open the hearts of characters torn between their stated duties and the need for personal honor and integrity. There are comedic stories (All For a Melon) and touching stories (Kozuru), and stories of honor lost and regained (The Runaway Stallion).

Translator Gavin Frew has done and excellent job here, and deserves props as well. Like the very best of translated works, one quickly forgets that this was not originally written in English.

Every story in the collection is, in a world, brilliant, and some of the finest Japanese literature that I have ever read. I have been impressed by the recent movies I have seen based on Fujisawa's work, and I am even more impressed by the original stories themselves.

The only sad footnote to this collection is the holder of the rights to the remainder of Fujisawa's stories is refusing to allow translation and publication, for whatever reason. Hopefully, as the renaissance in Fujisawa-based samurai films continues to gain popularity in the West, they will see the benefit in releasing these beautiful works of fiction to an appreciative audience, regardless of nationality.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Lovely Peeks Into Another Time 2007/6/28
By Mouldy Pilgrim - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
Fujiawa's collection of short stories "The Bamboo Sword and Other Samurai Tales" is a simply lovely book with lovely stories. Collected from a variety of other collections published in the Japanese, this present work forms a sort of introduction to Fujisawa.

The stories look at life during the Edo Period, (under the Tokugawa Shoguns), from a variety of angles, not only from the viewpoint of the samurai, (although they are certainly the main focus). The viewpoints include even a day in the life of a knife sharpener who moonlights as a burgular, (one of the more interesting stories for me).

Each of the stories is deeply human in its quality, taking in such elements as a samurai's problem with his wife and so on. They are touching windows on a domestic world often glossed over in other works and the movies. However, don't be fooled: there is plenty of action with swords and fighting in the book to satisfy the more martially oriented.

At only 253 pages, I found the book far too short and can only hope that more of Fujisawa's stories get translated into English. He is a gentle though energetic writer. This is onle of the best books I have read in some time.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The Bamboo Sword 2011/7/20
By matt - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazonで購入
Here is an engaging collection of eight stories set in the early 1600s during a time when Japan's Sengoku period, a very long era of civil wars, has recently ended as Tokugawa solidified his powerbase as the supreme ruler, the Shogun. The samurai class, while still needed by the Shogun but to a lesser degree, have found themselves trying to readjust to peace and, in a more personal context, trying to find their own place of pride and meaning, often resulting in great personal angst. These touching stories are more vignettes upon interpersonal relationships than anything else, and I found myself totally engrossed. I also found myself reflective on some of my own foibles, as these characters face life's challenges in a society that has clear winners and losers.

You may also find these worth looking into: Warriors of Medieval Japan (General Military), Sword and Brush: The Spirit of the Martial Arts and the excellent series by teh Hoobler's, one of which is In Darkness, Death (The Samurai Mysteries).

5つ星のうち 5.0 Outstanding Stories 2010/8/11
By See Em Gee - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー|Amazonで購入
I haven't read that much "traditional" Japanese stories so this was a first for me. I have read a lot of Yukio Mishima but since I watch many period piece Japanese movies, I've been wanting to understand those eras better. I am reading "Everyday Life in Traditional Japan" for a non-fictional viewpoint and since I love the movies "The Hidden Blade" and "Twilight Samurai," I thought this the perfect fictional viewpoint to read. The stories are clever and ones that I want to read again. This is a keeper. I wish more of this author's works were available in English.
