Abstract

Kawabata Yasunari's masterpiece Snow (ゆきぐに) is a unique blend of Japanese classical and Western modern literature, embodying rich tragic aesthetics. The work also possesses strong artistic characteristics with concise and refined language descriptions. Extensive narratives of psychology and dialogues reflect the author's emphasis on emotional rendering and expression. Additionally, the intentional portrayal of characters' emotions and destinies through changing seasons, coupled with the skillful use of the stream of consciousness technique from Western modernist literature, adds a layer of surreal beauty to the entire book.
