Novelist and playwright. Includes bibliographies of translated and critical works, a brief biography Category Arts Literature Authors A Abe, Kobo......Abe Kôbô (pron. AH upbringing. Abe grew up in Manchuria, or Manchukuoas the Japanese leasehold/puppet state was known at the time.
Abe (pron. "AH-bay KOH-boh") (1924-1993) stands out dramatically from his contemporaries in postwar Japanese literature. His works bear no resemblence to the subjective, ultra-realistic and autobiographical style that characterizes a great deal of postwar literature in general and postwar Japanese literature in particular. The reason for this, it has become customary to point out, probably lies in his relatively unique upbringing. Abe grew up in Manchuria, or Manchukuo as the Japanese leasehold/puppet state was known at the time. As such he presumably did not develop the deep ties to such concepts as furusato (hometown) and the emperor , both of which play large roles in the works of contemporaries Mishima Yukio and Nobel laureate Oe Kenzaburo. Furthermore, Abe did not undergo formal training in literature as did so many of his contemporaries. Instead he followed in his father's footsteps, studying medicine at Tokyo Imperial University. Unlike another famous medical doctor in Japanese literature, Mori Ogai, Abe did not excel in this field, nor did it seem that he had any particular enthusiasm for a life in medicine. It is said that he was allowed to graduate only on the condition that he never practice medicine. After the war Abe began experimenting with various radical social and artistic theories. Abe joined a small literary/artistic/philosophical group called

When I say that being a stick is excessively ordinary, I speak in the qualitative rather than the quantitative sense.

    The Face of Another (1966) is both a psychological study and an existential allegory. The protagonist is again a scientist, "the section head of a respectable laboratory," whose face has been disfigured in a chemical explosion. This disfigurement creates a rift between the scientist and everyone he encounters particularly his wife. The source of this rift is due less to others' repulsion at his face than to the scientist's self-disgust

    Abe Kobo: Writing From Nowhere By Jennifer Uhlich Abe Kobo, novelist, playwright, and essayist, is often referred to as "Japan's Kafka." Though the phrase may seem complimentary, it also reveals an inherent schism in his writings. To relate authors across national borders is to imply two separate meanings: one, that there are themes in their respective works that transcend cultural contexts; two, that they are lacking some aspect of those contexts, something inherently "Japanese" in Abe's case. To transcend is also to leave behind. What is the relationship between Abe and Kafka? On one level, there is certainly a direct influence on Abe's subject matter. Kafka-esque themes such as transformation, absurdity, and surreal situations abound in Abe's stories. In the short story "Dendrocacalia," a man finds himself becoming a rare species of shrubbery, a direct homage to Kafka's Metamorphosis ; the connection is also present in The Face of Another , where Abe's protagonist undergoes horrific facial scarring and subsequently changes psychologically. The surreal, frustrating, frightening developments of Kafka's

    By David Lurie
    Contributing Writer
    Monday, May 1, 2000
    Mainichi Shimbun Abe Kobo A s meditations on the absurdity and alienation of modern life, the writings of Abe Kobo are frequently compared to the work of authors like Kafka and Beckett. In novels like "The Face of Another" (trans. E. Dale Saunders; Kodansha, 1992), about a man whose attempt to mask his badly scarred face has unexpected consequences, and "The Ruined Map" (trans. E. Dale Saunders; Kodansha, 1993), the eerie story of a detective whose pursuit of a missing man leads to the dissolution of his self, Abe treats loneliness and the loss of identity with a dreamlike internal consistency that is both terrifying and strangely reassuring. Though they are often very funny, his novels and stories are also bleak and sparely written. The detachment that is fundamental to this style is not a pose; unlike Murakami Haruki, a popular contemporary author deeply influenced by him, Abe's deadpan is never cute. Philosophical depth underlies the coldness with which he treats his characters and the ease with which he transforms their bodies and identities: in his work, objects begin talking, move on their own, and even plot against humans; people, on the other hand, are liable to change into plants, articles of clothing, or even walls. The twelve elegantly translated short stories in "Beyond the Curve" (trans. Juliet Winters Carpenter; Kodansha, 1993) are an excellent introduction to the beauty, mystery, and humor of Abe's work. An excerpt from an early, award-winning novella, "The Crime of S. Karma," features the unforgettable scene of a man discovering that his business card has taken human form and begun impersonating him. "The Life of a Poet" is a starkly (perhaps ironically?) allegorical account of the value of art, memorable for images of a jacket made of human thread and snow of crystallized dreams so cold that it freezes time. Other stories showcase typical Abe themes like puzzling crimes (the hero of the darkly funny "An Irrelevant Death" blunders into implicating himself in the murder of a corpse he finds on his carpet), metamorphosis (in "Dendrocacalia," a man turns into a tree) and loss of identity (the title story features a severe case of amnesia).

    Abe Kobo My novelist for August, in this series of 20th-century Japanese novelists, is Abe Kobo (1924-93), who is as different from the authors I have already introduced as he can be, but he has belonged to the set of the "big five" for me ever since I first met them in reading the five novels assigned in the course in Modern Japanese Literature I took from Father William Currie at Tokyo's Sophia University in the summer of 1973, when I read Soseki's Kokoro , Tanizaki's Some Prefer Nettles , Kawabata's Snow Country , Mishima's Temple of the Golden Pavillion , and Abe Kobo's The Woman in the Dunes . For years I had a flyer (from Berkeley Press, I think) that I passed around in classes that showed that each of those five Japanese authors (and no others) had at least five novels translated into Englishall available in paperback from that press. A good friend here in Topeka, Dr. Tetsuro Takahashi (whom I will feature later as a Kansas author in his own right, with a book for sale), also pointed out to me that all five of these authors, over the generations, had graduated, as he had, from Tokyo University. But, working chronologically, we came to Abe Kobo last, of course, and discovered that he was different from those other four novelists in four important respects. First, he was still alive in 1973 (three of the others might well have been, having died within the previous eight years, two by suicide) and was very active in avant-garde theatre right there in Tokyo that very summer (though, I'm sorry to say, I did not know enough to seek him out at the time, but did finally meet both Abe and his wife at a reception in St. Louis after a production of the play
