Yukio Mishima, the internationally famous Japanese novelist, committed hara-kiri on November 25, 1970, in protest against the World War II Japanese constitution which forbids war. His tragic death startled Japan and the world, and left many unanswered questions about Mishima's extraordinary act of supreme sacrifice. Here is Mishima's testament which gives us many answers to this puzzling man's philosophy and his art, and which strangely forecasts the traditional samurai ritual suicide by which he was later to take his life. Translated into English from the Japanese by John Bester. (Key Words: Yukio Mishima, Essays, Japanese Literature, John Bester, Hara-kiri, Ritual Suicide).
