Haruki Murakami ” Listen to the wind song»

“Listen to the wind song” is Haruki Murakami’s first work. But I don’t want to go into the details and details of who this writer is, I hope you are very familiar with him yourself. At the moment, I have read many books by the Japanese, but the story “Listen to the song of the wind” somehow still did not have to deal with. When a person is already an established writer, and thousands of written pages have accumulated behind him, it is always interesting to retrospectively plunge into his past and get acquainted with his debut work.
Murakami himself said that he personally did not like his first works (including the second book in the series the Rat Trilogy – “Pinball-1973”). I can assume that every writer is familiar with this feeling, but the whole point is that you will never have this “first” work again, and each subsequent work will be a refinement and honing of the skill. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but we won’t look for them now. It is natural and natural to grow as a writer, over time, gradually, and then look back at the time when you first started. So you shouldn’t be surprised that Murakami – such a prolific writer – looked back, remembered his first work, and called it rather weak.

Note that in the introductory paragraphs, we did not talk directly about the book. The thing is, there’s not much to talk about. A young man drinks a lot of beer and leads intricate, and sometimes even strange, conversations with a young and strange girl who just recently met. People who have read his other works will say with confidence that this is a typical Murakami. But here it is much more interesting to trace the origin of his famous style. It is very difficult to follow the meaning of conversations in the work, but it is suspected that part of the problem is the huge difference between the Japanese language and any translation of it. For example, a simple pronoun “I” in different forms in Japanese can directly indicate the gender of the speaker.

“Listen to the wind song” is a very small story. In fact, nothing serious happens in it, except that we meet a mysterious narrator. The narrator tells about his life and who he is in fragments, so it is difficult to put together a complete picture. But many Murakami fans will definitely like this story.
