“Was it death he was now waiting for? Or a wild ecstasy of the senses?” For the young army officer of Yukio Mishima’s seminal story, “Patriotism,” death and ecstasy become intertwined. With his unique rigor and passion, Mishima hones in on the body as the great tragic stage for all we call social, ritual, political.
