Women in the Halite

Yasunori Kawamatsu

Novel of Women in the Dunes is story about Men who was caught by women. She lives in Dune. Women forced to Men to rake out sand. such a sand as women, such a women as sand. She(sand) robbed his something, before he knows. His mind which swung for a while is absorbed smoothly by the woman. He will penetrate routine work, and will discover the meaning of his life on dune, at the same time. ‘rake out sand’ is meanless. but I felt this is symbol about psyche of Japan. that’s the generation of a meaning which takes place by a meaningless act, and pleasure of alive. Since it is man, something will be found out there (meaningless). I wished to express this beauty. It dispels believing the importance of an act simultaneously.
