Sobre l'autor

Shusaku Endo was born in Tokyo in 1923 and, with his family, converted to Catholicism while he was still a child. Much of his writing centers on the conflict this conversion engendered as he struggled to develop faith in a deity foreign to Japanese culture. His writings also reflect on his mostra'n més experiences during World War II during the bombings and the subsequent shortage of basic human necessities for the Japanese people. He explores the suffering endured and the inevitable shock wave upon human relationships and the human psyche. Endo graduated from Keio University and then journeyed to France after the war to continue his studies, but was forced to return to Japan because of illness. After a period of convalescence Endo decided on a writing career, publishing his first novel, Shiroihito, in 1955. His novel The Samurai, published in the United States in 1996, is considered one of his finest works. His novel Silence, was made into a major motion picture and premiered in November 2016. Endo's reputation is due in part to his exploration of moral dilemma as it relates to divergent cultures. Endo has won many literary awards. In 1982 he was elected to the Japan Arts Academy. Shusaku Endo died in 1996. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

One of the greatest books ever written. A must read.

Pretty bleak. Sort of 1984, but set in 17th century Japan, and the main character is a Portuguese priest/missionary.

"Endo's graceful life of Christ ranks with Francois Mauriac as one of the great volumes of its kind written in this century" (Harry James Cargas)

"He knows the land. His descriptions of the Judean countryside and the little towns that dot it, and of the incredibly bleak and empty desert, are among the most real and poetic I have ever read." (The Catholic Review)

"Endo is consummate writer who, as a master photographer, brings intense sentimant, character, and movement out of the subtle light and shadows that he focuses around his subject." (Choice)

" Shusaku Endo is considered one of Japan's greatest modern writers. His novel Silence is acknowleged as a masterpiece and has been translated into many languages. The Final Martyrs, published in English just before his death in 1996, reinforces his reputation as a major literary figure. Endo was born in 1923 and concerted to Christianity as a boy. His stories and novels attempt to integrate his religious faith with Japanese culture." (Publisher, back of book)

Japanese novelist Endo combines a harsh critique of the emptiness in modern lives with a religious vision of spiritual rebirth. (Publishers Weekly)

"This novel is a fascinating study of cultural truths revealed through a rich and varied cast. Endo, one of Japan's leading writers, skillfully depicts the small details of life, investing them with universal significance. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
