    'Once again Mishima displays all the gifts which made him by the time of his death one of the few writers whose greatness was unquestionable. The shattering beauty is still there, the humour, eroticism, sensuousness, the fusion of passion and imagery…Mishima's greatness transcends cultural barriers' – Sunday Telegraph
