Autograph letter signed "Yukio mishima" to dominique aury s. L, March 28, 1970, 2 p. In-4 oblong, in English traces of folds. Trouble letter of mishima written less than a year before his suicide by seppuku. He welcomes the welcome critical reception of his new patriotism in france and wishes to be particularly informed of the Malral dandré opinion.
He then evokes the beginning of the writing of the last volume of his novelist tetralogy that the sea of fertility develops on the explosive balance that he seeks to inspire his mind. He ends with an allusion to the equivocal tone of his fate.Dominique aury, I am delighted to learn from your letter that your son, Mr. Philippe dargila, plans to visit Japan in the near future. Thank you for letting me know his itinerary as soon as possible so I can arrange everything he needs in advance. I can't wait to meet him. I am pleased to know that your wonderful translation of patriotism has been warmly received by your friends. In particular, I would like to know the reaction of Mr. André Malreaux (perhaps poorly spelled) on this subject, and at the same time, if possible, his reaction to film adaptation. As for your private projection, I am sure that the French must be too sophisticated and would pass away by looking at it. I will now begin the last (fourth) volume of my long novel. To write, I always need a balance between the critical moment of society and the essential malaise in my mind, but the present Japan does not seem to me to be conducive to being written in the current circumstances, since the social crisis is probably already resolved and becomes too silent. My novel can reach the highest tension when I feel my inner bomb and the outer bomb as a critical balance.
I do not intend to assassinate anyone, on the other hand, I have no possibility of being murdered, since no one considers me worthy of being murdered! Spend a beautiful and charming spring betting, as always yukio mishima".

I whose intention to assassinate anybody, on the other hand, i have no possibility to be assassinated, since nobody considers me worth to be assassinated!
