  1. Mornings are torture Glasses are like ghostWords don t come easy out of your mind and those exact ones which may express what we actually feel are even harder to come by to have congruity between our thoughts and our words is a rare skill However, one may not able to put forth the exact words but one may use simple, harmless, docile words to create an atmosphere of enigma to express one s feelings It may sound quite simple but had it been so then we might not have been reading Dazai Schoolgirl i [...]

Good night I m Cinderella without her prince Do you know where to find me in Tokyo You won t see me again.Twenty thousand winks under the sea Twenty thousand plus one stars above twinkling their twinkle little star how I wonder who you are The house plants are not safe except for the fuchsias that are easily drawn towards the dark than to the light groans Mary had all of her little lambs to count to quite contrarily not go to sleep Tug on the fishing line as if it were a morse code two pulls fo [...]

  3. Mornings are grey Always the same Absolutely empty.What is this book A teenage girl eats breakfast, goes to school, eats dinner, goes to sleep A short and tense day in the life of unrelenting bleakness I yearned for everything long gone.She s just a kid She s a hypocrite She s bleeding She s drowning She hates everyone, she wishes for everything The world revolts her, but the world is beautiful, but the world is sad, but the world is glittering and peaceful But the world is pain Our schoolgirl c [...]

  4. Whenever i put pen on to a paper or I type words I think of Osamu Dazai The craft of his writing with the mixture of his character equals a major influence on me, and I suspect on contemporary Japanese literature as well For instance, Mishima s major influence was Dazai Well, sort of He didn t want to be a Dazai, in fact, he hated his work But the truth is hatred of Dazai s character and work was a sign of love and respect to the great decadent literary figure and Dazai was extremely decadent in [...]

  5. Es una belleza este libro Cada cuento es una joya, impredecibles y cercanos a la vez Todas las protagonistas, o narradoras, son mujeres, pero no existe ninguna obviedad, todo lo contrario, cada personaje, y cada historia tienen una delicadeza muy especial, el autor parece tener alma femenina, y todas son grandes personajes Muy recomendado, no conoc a a Dazai, a quien seguir leyendo encantada.

  6. 3.5 I go about saying how pained and tormented, how lonely and sad I feel, but what do I really mean by that If I were to speak the truth, I would die Dazai s pain is on these pages His mental anguish and hatred of social s are shown through this discourse of depression and sadness in the eyes of an adolescent his state of mind constantly on display Sometimes happiness arrives one night too late All throughout his life, happiness either arrived too late or never came at all.This is Dazai, stripp [...]

  10. From the field across the yard, a child s voice called out tearfully, Sis It startled me The voice wasn t calling for me but I envied the sister whom the child was crying out for If I were her, with such a beloved and cossetted little brother, then I wouldn t live my life so shamefully day after day This reminded me of one of my favourite Dazai stories It s called The Garden Lantern in Lane Dunlop s translation in Late Chrysanthemum and Magic Lantern in a translation from Tomone Matsumoto in The [...]

  11. Schoolgirl takes you on the emotional rollercoaster that is a day in the mind of a teenage girl The girl might seem like a regular teenager on the outside, whining like a spoilt child and preoccupied by mundane things, but on the inside she lays bare her personality It is slightly voyeuristic to read as we are privvy to her most intimate thoughts The girl is on the verge of womanhood and you can feel how desoriented she is by the whole process of growing up and dealing with her isolation and gri [...]

  12. 4.5 A couple of people on my friendslist who have very good taste love this little book, and Dazai generally I m not so enthusiastic he usually seems to be the wrong kind of depressing for me but reading this was an interesting experience I wanted to work through some of the unread books on my Kindle before they got out of hand This one was short but could be difficult and today felt like a day I d be prepared for it The first few lines, I remembered, had a joyful, thoughtful playfulness that br [...]

  13. Almost a short story than even a novella, but still a dense and powerful work I have been inspired to read of his novels and most definitely understand why he is such a cult favorite in Japan.

  14. Genuine beauty is always meaningless, without virtue.RatingI ve opted to give Schoolgirl a 5 5 rating GenreI am very unsure of the genre of this book, and therefore can only label is as Japanese Culture, and Japanese Literature About the BookSchoolgirl follows the typical day of a young Japanese school girl We are introduced to a lot of her inner feelings, including grief, mourning, happiness, and are shown her realism With further revision, I have found out that this novella describes the socia [...]

  15. This book was written in 1939 but it s only recently been translated into English It s surprisingly contemporary The only things it really lacked were mobile phones Or maybe it s not the slightest bit contemporary and I ve no idea what life is like for schoolgirls in Japan these days I certainly have no idea what it s like to be a girl but I do remember what life was like as an angst ridden teenager and I think Dazai s pretty much nailed that Of course we never learn exactly how old our young na [...]

  16. SchoolgirlPlastic GirlSchoolgirlPlastic GirlThe books were intertwined in my head Perhaps because they both echoed the same theme and their styles were not very different no plot, only collection of thoughts And I admired Dazai s ability to portray the mind of a teenage girl Really, how can you dislike these fragile naive self hatred and finally self acceptance qualities I want to love everyone, I thought, almost tearfully If you stare at the sky, it changes little by little Gradually it turns b [...]

  18. I liked this, and it definitely makes me want to read of Osamu Dazai s work I like the narrative framework of the novella, focusing on one day in the life of a schoolgirl living in Tokyo in 1939 There s a lot going on here, from the obvious impacts of fascism and war that influence the daily life of this girl, to the relatable yet detestable negativity and self loathing that she experiences I see where Dazai is coming from and I understand why so many people love it, but there was something mis [...]

  20. It was so interesting to get tangled in the young girl s thoughts Although, her insecurities, woes, grief, and everyday anxieties aren t unique by any sense of the word, the mode in which she tells of them are quite interesting.She spoke about how she d put on facades in order to appease others, but in all actuality she felt she was the entire opposite of what people were allowed to think of her Overall, the reader is allowed in this young girls head space who is also trying to come to grips wit [...]

  21. A personal perspective of a school girl Her endless musings are relatable She talks all throughout the book One topic to another flows normally like a liquid changing its form When a part seems to become inconsequential, she reels me back in to a meaningful point It s my first time to read an Osamu Dazai s work and definitely not the last.

  22. Written in 1939 but only now translated into English for the first time, Osamu Dazai s Schoolgirl a slim, precocious novella narrated by a schoolgirl of indeterminate age was stylish and provocative in its time Almost three quarters of a century later, its prescience seems eerie hardly anything about this book seems to have aged, least of all the narrator herself, who is perfectly preserved somewhere along the road to adolescence Though she s still young enough to entertain herself with nonsensi [...]

  23. Leerlo me produjo la misma sorpresa que lo fue leer a Poe por primera vez, en el sentido de que pasan mas cuestiones internas que externas, y por esta razon habia consideraso seriamente dejar de leerlo, pero al final no lo hice y me alegro por eso.Estas historias son intimas y personales, quizas demasiado para mi, pero el ejercicio, si se le da la oportunidad es bastante gratificante, puedes obsevas como Dazai trata de darle sentido a su mundo, como lidia con el desde una perspectiva casi voyeri [...]
