Die Utopie des Miyazawa Kenji: “gescheiterte Hoffnung”


Watanabe, T (2011). Die Utopie des Miyazawa Kenji: “gescheiterte Hoffnung”. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 65(2):479-494.

Abstract

Miyazawa Kenji always considered his own literary achievements, comprising numerous poems and fairytales, as amateurish. This was because in his view, every human being ought to be poet as well as farmer and craftsman. At the same time Miyazawa Kenji aimed at founding an ideal world within the capitalist society he was living in, inspired by autarchical structures. The path towards this utopia was arduous and burdensome. Miyazawa Kenji collapsed right at the beginning of this path, and died before reaching his goal.
