Seventeen Syllables pdf; A Collection Of Short Stories By Hisaye Yamamoto

Seventeen Syllables pdf

Seventeen Syllables is the title of a collection of short stories, a book by Hisaye Yamamoto. Seventeen Syllables features interesting short stories that permeates the generational discord amidst Japanese parents and children during and the post world war and other trivial issues that were prevalent. Such as ethnic oppression, patriarchy etc. 

Hisaye Yamamoto's Seventeen Syllables is her most popular short story and as such, captures the scenery of the lives of a Japan immigrant mother or Iseei and her Neisei daughter. The mother is passionate about the Japanese poetry, haiku which usually contains Seventeen syllables. On the contrary, her daughter doesn't understand this. 

The short story permeates through interesting subjects matter such as, the recognition of Japanese women as second class citizens and the divide generated through ethnicity. These were both highlighted by the daughter's hideous romance with a Mexican boy, the mother winning a poetry contest and the father's resentment of her wife's success.

What is Seventeen Syllables and Other Stories About?

Have you ever, while reading a book, felt like a clear, undiluted recaptured of the events in the society. Is being outplayed. Just plain, as it is. If you have, then Hisaye Yamamoto Seventeen Syllables will definitely interest you. If you haven't, then you should try reading the book.

The whole short stories contained in Hisaye Yamamoto Seventeen Syllables were summarily captured by Publisher Weekly where it described the book as that which is:

"Imbued with the serenity of authority, these stories ably conduct the reader through the Japanese experience in America, from the oil fields of Redondo Beach to the internment camps of WW II, through the lives of young and old as they confront American customs, manners and culture. Yamamoto's stories also depict the stained relationships between Japanese immigrants and the nisei (American-born Japanese). Yet the author does not confine herself to ethnic issues. In ``The High-Heeled Shoes: A Memoir,'' for example, the subtle forms of sexual harassment are delineated; a woman's obsession with expressing herself through the condensed poetry of haiku, and her husband's objections are explored in the title story. The inexplicable tragedies of everyday life an inconsolable mourner, a desertion by a friend, the endless quest for an illusory prosperity (as in the stories ``The Brown House'' and ``Las Vegas Charley)are underscored by a forlorn nostalgia for a history and a culture that fails to be transmitted from one generation to the next"
