箱男Yukio Mishima and Japanese Literature

Kobo Abe's "Box Man" Synopsis and Impressions - A dazzling world if you wear a box? A major influence on MGS director Hideo Kojima!

今作『箱男』は何とも形容しがたい刺激的な作品です。

まず、そもそもタイトルが謎です。『箱男』って何だ?

私は阿部公房の『箱男』という作品について、これまで名前だけは知ってはいたのでありますが今回いよいよ実際に読んでみることになりました。

私はてっきりチェーホフの『箱にはいった男』のイメージで、何か観念的な物語かと思っていたのですが読んでみてびっくり、物理的に本当に箱をかぶった男の話だったとは!

ぜひぜひおすすめしたい作品です。三島由紀夫を学ぶ流れで読んでみた作品でしたが、その作風の違いなども感じられてとても楽しい読書になりました。
