The journeys of a French merchant in late middle ages lead to Japan in order to acquire silkworms. He falls in love, an ethereal, spiritual and yet erotic love with a young woman living with his Japanese business partner. Conversation is dangerous, touch can lead to catastrophe. Silk. by: Baricco, Alessandro, ; Waldman, Guido. Publication date urn: acs6:silk00bari:epub:c83ccf2cac-8a1bcfa47ae. Alessandro Baricco is a popular Italian writer, director and performer His novels have been translated into a wide number of languages, and include Lands of.
Shelves: literary I never imagined I would like a book where the main character makes a living by buying silkworms. But I did. In fact, I not only liked it, I loved it. SILK is easily one of the top ten books I have read in the past eighteen months or so. It has a sparse writing style, and passages are repeated almost verbatim in no less than three different spots.
I would have really liked that. But Baricco had other ideas.
He knew that if he heaped detail upon detail, during this part, the mystery and intrigue of the story would become lost. Instead, Baricco uses only the least bit of detail to convey such a tumultuous time of Japanese and world history.
And it is done in such a beautiful and remarkable way that this reader never felt as if important aspects of the novel were only glazed over.
It is while in Japan that Herve has a realization of love. I wish I could tell you about the woman and the impact she had upon Herve, but that would ruin the story for you.
Herve replays this journey four times. Three of them are peaceful.
On the fourth time, Japan is in the midst of a civil war. A young boy appears and gives him the glove that he had dropped on the pile of Hara Kei's mistress's clothes.
He follows the boy to the place where the refugees from Hara Kei's village are camping. Hara Kei denies Joncour welcome but Joncour refuses to leave. The next morning, Joncour sees the body of the boy hanging from a tree; Hara Kei has executed him for carrying the glove to Joncour and bringing him back to the village. Joncour hastily procures a supply of eggs but leaves far too late in the season to transport them to France.
