    I love the randomness of this book One paragraph is a about how to wear your awesome samurai hat, and the next is about the proper way to decapitate someone.

    It irks me that people don t know the history of this book.A lot of people seem to read it assuming that it s some sort of rule book that the samurai class carried around in their kimonos so as to follow its writings without err This is not the case The book was written after 100 years of peace in Japan, when the samurai class was transforming into an administrative class.Yes, that s right the author was some pencil pusher for the state.This doesn t mean it isn t an interesting book Thinking about who Tsunetomo was can arguably make the book interesting it s his romanticized, idyllic vision of what samurai are or were supposed to be.

    Hagakure Ky jitai Shinjitai meaning Hidden by the Leaves or hidden leaves , 1 or Hagakure Kikigaki is a practical and spiritual guide for a warrior, drawn from a collection of commentaries by the clerk Yamamoto Tsunetomo, former retainer to Nabeshima Mitsushige, the third ruler of what is now Saga Prefecture in Japan Tashiro Tsuramoto ja compiled these commentaries from his conversations with Tsunetomo from 1709 to 1716 however, it was not published until many years afterwards Written during a time when there was no officially sanctioned samurai fighting, the book grapples with the dilemma of maintaining a warrior class in the absence of war and reflects the author s nostalgia for a world that had disappeared before he was bornThis was so interesting and gave the absolute weirdest look into feudal samurai society Review to come soon I m back everyone

    The definitive book of my adult life This book was popularized in the film Ghost Dog The Way of the Samurai, showing an assassin for the mob who lives according to the his interpretation of the principles of this book That is how I first came across the book, and since then the book has been a central part of my life The book is some 300 excerpts from a total of about 1,300 dictated to Yamamoto s attendant over the course of 7 years, between 1710 and 1716 Yamamoto was a samurai born some 60 years into the Tokagawa era, the beginning of peace in Japan that would force the samurai class to redefine their role in society Yamamoto holds strong to the principles, attitudes and teachings of an era of warfare before his own time, emphasizing extremism and fanaticism as an antidote to the mediocrity, laziness, foolishness and self interest of the fellow samurai of his time For all the criticisms I have read over the years about this book, most of them, while perhaps valid, overlook the wisdom and vitality of so much of his writing While at times he insists on brashness over hesitation and violence and capital punishment over cowardice, he also advocates repeatedly to live and act with a compassionate attitude and to lighten a punishment on a condemned man when fitting Several of the passages appear, at least at an initial reading, to contradict each other I doubt Yamamoto would be concerned with that criticism His main concern is investigating what it means to be a samurai all the complications and problems discussed are meant for consideration, not for finding straightforward answers Yamamoto offers no answers, but instead demands the proper attitude for a samurai This book is not for the general public I recommend it for anyone interested in samurai culture, military literature, Japanese literature, the martial arts, or philosophy.

    da consultare ,nel caso si voglia cercare di capire cosa puo passare per la testa ad un samurai o ronin che sia che poi questo,fondamentalmente Kezuke no Kubi si pu imparare qualcosa da un temporale Quando un acquazzone ci sorprende,cerchiamo di non bagnarci affrettando il passo, ma anche tentando di ripararci sottoi cornicioni ci inzuppiamo ugualmente Se invece, sin dal principio, accettiamo di bagnarcieviteremo ogni incertezza e non per questo ci bagneremo di pi Tale consapevolezza siapplica a tutte le cose.
