Pofile of Sahori Nobuya

Born in Osaka in 1933. Grew up in Nara Prefecture, and graduated from Tezukayama High School. Presently, he is enrolled in the Medical Department of Kobe University. By the influence of his father, who is an ophthalmologist, and embracing high esteem for the distinguished doctors such as Takagi Kanehiro, and Nakai Hisao, and having interest in life, he aspired to learn medical science. On the other hand, he opened his eyes to nihilism through witnessing the polluted water of former Yodo-river, and having the awareness to the problem, he began to focus himself to literary works. He began reading the literary works of Shigyo Sosyu from 18 years old, and during his entrance exam preparation period, he thoroughly read [Ikuru (To Live)], [Tomo-yo (Dear Friends)] and [Kongen-e (To the Origin)]. Afterword, mainly reading Shigyo Sosyu related books and he enthusiastically read Mishima Yukio, Origuchi Shinobu, Akutagawa Ryunosuke, Abe Kobo, Uchimura Kanzo, Shakespeare, Nietzsche, Cioran, Camus and others. In the summer of 2016, taking his inner imbroglio as the opportunity, he visited Memorial Gallery of Toshima Yasumas and began the exchange with Mr. Shigyo Sosyu.

[The Christ of Velázquez] (Written by Miguel de Unamuno) Translation supervised by Shigyo Sosyu will be published.

To celebrate the Friendship of the 150th Anniversary of the Establishment of Japan―Spain Diplomatic Relations, and the 800th Anniversary of Foundation of Salamanca University, one of the oldest University in Europe, in 2018, the religious poem by Miguel de Unamuno [The Christ of Velázquez] (Translation supervised by Shigyo Sosyu / Translated by Abe Misaki / Comment by Juan Masiá) will be on sale with the complete translation accomplished for the first time in Japan. This religious poem is the one, which Unamuno himself highly valued among his works. It is consisted of 89 cantos of religious poems, which Unamuno created meditating in front of [Christ Crucified] painted by the leading Spanish painter Velázquez. In these poems, the quintessence of religious spirit deriving from the Spanish mystic thought such as John of Cross, Saint Teresa of Ávila, and the soul of the Spanish Race are hidden within them. We would be delighted if you would take it in your hands.

[The Christ of Velázquez] (Written by Miguel de Unamuno) Translation supervised by Shigyo Sosyu will be published.
