Mishima's Sense of Humor

Yukio Mishima, the Japanese novelist who was considered for the Nobel Prize, had a great sense of humor. He commissioned a professional photographer to make some racy photographs of himself in outfits that resemble adult diapers. In one photo he is shot with arrows. In others he holds a samurai sword in the snow. The photographs have a decidedly erotic and homosexual overtone, and yet they also have a sense of the absurd about them that is rarely addressed. To see them simply Google Mishima in image search mode. (Photo: Mishima posing as Saint Sebastien.)
