Example text

The commitment was shared by Endo, whose determination to fathom the psychology of his characters is, with the arguable exception of Shimao Toshio’s portraits of his protagonists struggling to come to terms with the concept of the previously unconscionable ‘future’ following his aborted kamikaze mission, unrivalled within the group. 6 27 TOWARDS RECONCILIATION The portrayal is of the individual as representing an amalgam of conflicting forces, the implicit challenge to Endo, as author, being the need to seek a literary reconciliation of the conscious and unconscious elements within human nature.

There was, however, another generation of writers, that which would subsequently be labelled as the Daisan no shinjin, whose literary productions in the aftermath of war stood in stark contrast to the above responses. 64 There was, however, one other latecomer to this grouping, Endo Shusaku, whose delayed assimilation into the coterie was in part attributable, as we shall see, to his physical absence from the Tokyo literary scene during the group’s formative years.
