Yukio Mishima and his legacy in Mexico

Relations between Mexico and Japan have taken a vertiginous course in recent decades, which propose the need to understand the nation of the Rising Sun not only from a commercial point of view but also from a political, religious, aesthetic and fine arts point of view. In this sense, Yukio Mishima stands as a spokesperson par excellence that, through literature, theatre, film and even modelling, is a parameter in Mexico to understand our partner on the other side of the Pacific.

In this work, he offers different perspectives from Mexican and Japanese experts who, summoned by the University Program of Studies on Asia and Africa (PUEAA-UNAM), from literature, diplomacy, hermeneutics, psychoanalysis, translation, peace studies and politics offer interpretations of Mishima's legacy while allowing us to know and understand Japan from the second half of the 20th century.
