Дата смерти: 16. Апрель 1972

Ясунари Кавабата — японский писатель, офицер французского ордена искусств и литературы , лауреат Нобелевской премии по литературе .

В работах Кавабаты, глубоко укоренённых в национальной художественной традиции Японии, но в то же время свободно использующих приёмы современной литературы, большое значение придаётся подтексту, недосказанности и суггестивности. К основным сочинениям относятся романы «Тысячекрылый журавль», «Снежная страна», «Старая столица», «Стон горы» и др. Своей ключевой работой сам Кавабата считал роман «Мэйдзин». Произведения писателя переведены на многие языки мира.

Скончался у себя дома в Дзуси в 1972 году из-за отравления угарным газом. В качестве одной из версий называют самоубийство, в качестве другой — несчастный случай в результате алкогольного опьянения, однако фактические причины смерти до сих пор остаются невыясненными. В 1974 году издательством «Синтёся» учреждена литературная премия имени Ясунари Кавабаты.

‘You sometimes even feel sentimental for it.“

„Time passed. But time flows in many streams. Like a river, an inner stream of time will flow rapidly at some places and sluggishly at others, or perhaps even stand hopelessly stagnant. Cosmic time is the same for everyone, but human time differs with each person. Time flows in the same way for all human beings; every human being flows through time in a different way.“ Beauty and Sadness

„But even more than her diary, Shimamura was surprised at her statement that she had carefully cataloged every novel and short story she had read since she was fifteen or sixteen. The record already filled ten notebooks.
"You write down your criticisms, do you?"
"I could never do anything like that. I just write down the author and the characters and how they are related to each other. That is about all."
"But what good does it do?"
"None at all."
"A waste of effort."
"A complete waste of effort," she answered brightly, as though the admission meant little to her. She gazed solemnly at Shimamura, however.
A complete waste of effort. For some reason Shimamura wanted to stress the point. But, drawn to her at that moment, he felt a quiet like the voice of the rain flow over him. He knew well enough that for her it was in fact no waste of effort, but somehow the final determination that it had the effect of distilling and purifying the woman's existence.“
Snow Country
