Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabata‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s Thousand Cranes is a luminous story of desire, regret, and the almost sensual nostalgia that binds the living to the dead.
While attending a traditional tea ceremony in the aftermath of his parents‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_ deaths, Kikuji encounters his father‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s former mistress, Mrs. Ota. At first Kikuji is appalled by her indelicate nature, but it is not long before he succumbs to passion‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√¨a passion with tragic and unforeseen consequences, not just for the two lovers, but also for Mrs. Ota‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s daughter, to whom Kikuji‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s attachments soon extend. Death, jealousy, and attraction convene around the delicate art of the tea ceremony, where every gesture is imbued with profound meaning.
