No Longer Human By Osamu Dazai

No Longer Human is the second novel by Osamu Dazai, a famous postwar Japanese writer. It depicts the tragic and fascinating narrative of a young man stuck between the dissolution of a northern Japanese aristocratic family’s traditions and the impact of Western ideas. As a result, he believes he is “disqualified from being human” (a literal translation of the Japanese title).

The author’s work has been praised by Donald Keene, who translated this and Dazai’s debut novel, The Setting Sun: “His world evokes Chekhov or possibly postwar France, yet the material is chosen and presented with a Japanese sensibility. A Dazai novel is both instantly understandable in Western terminology and completely unlike any other Western book.” His writing has been compared to that of Rimbaud, and he has been dubbed a predecessor of Yukio Mishima.

About Osamu Dazai

Osamu DAZAI (real name Shji TSUSHIMA) was a Japanese author who is regarded as one of the greatest fiction writers of the twentieth century. Several of his most popular works, including Shay (The Setting Sun) and Ningen Shikkaku (No Longer Human), are regarded as modern-day classics in Japan.

Dazai’s stories have piqued the interest of many readers due to their semi-autobiographical style and transparency into his personal life. His books also raise awareness about a variety of important issues, including human nature, mental illness, social relationships, and postwar Japan.
