人間失格 SYNOPSIS 4 MASHI-SENPAI

 yup!! Mashi-senpai, here's the  人間失格 synopsis 4 you.. douzo~

"No Longer Human" paints the portrait of the life of Ōba Yōzō (大庭葉蔵), a troubled soulself to others and who is instead forced to uphold a facade of hollow jocularity. The name of the main character, Ōba, is actually taken from one of Dazai's early works, "Petals of Buffoonery" (道化の華). incapable of revealing his true
Ōba refers to himself throughout the book using the reflexive pronoun "Jibun" (自分), whereas the personal pronoun "Watashi" () is used both in the foreword and afterword to the book by the writer, whose name is unclear.
Dazai might have been a sufferer of Complex post-traumatic stress disorder whilst writing the book. Mike Lew has praised the book for expressing male sexual trauma.

PLOT OUTLINE

The novel is composed of three chapters, or "memorandums", which chronicle the life of Ōba from early childhood to late twenties.
  • First Memorandum - Overcome by an intense feeling of alienation and finding it nearly impossible to socialize with those who surround him, Ōba can't but resort to buffoonery in order to establish interpersonal relationships and engage in a vain attempt to forget the abuse he was subjected to by a female servant during his childhood.
  • Second Memorandum - Ōba becomes increasingly concerned over the potential penetrability of his cheerful facade. He neglects his university studies. Under the influence of a fellow artist he meets at a course, Horiki, he descends into a vicious cycle of drinking, smoking and harlotry, culminating in a one-night stand with a married woman with whom he intends to commit double suicide by drowning. Though he survives, she dies, leaving him with nothing but an excruciating feeling of guilt.
  • Third Memorandum - Several years later, Ōba is expelled from University and falls into a relationship with a young and naïve woman. Ōba stops drinking and things seem to work out well until Horiki shows up, turning Ōba to self-destructivity again. Feeling distant from his wife, Ōba is once again driven to the verge of committing suicide, but unable to do so, he becomes an alcoholic and a morphine addict. He is eventually interned in a mental institution, and, upon release, moves to an isolated place, concluding the story with numb self-reflection.
MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS:
  • if tgk secara kasar may be owg akan tgk Yozo sebagai 人間失格 (failed as a human) cuz he's an alcoholic, womanizer, addicted to drug.. etc.. tp dr sudut pandangan kouhai as a sociology student, Yozo jd cmtu pn sbb cara dia disosialisasikan. means cara dia dibesarkan. dr kecik g dia dh ada trauma dsbbkn sex abused by his servant during his childhood. then ms kt skul pn dia cm dipinggirkan dgn mmbr2. tp dia ttp maintain ok je dgn diowg sme. walaupun kt lua dia nmpk cm ok / happy but deep down inside he was so depressed. then lg teruk bila ade bad influence from his friend~ Horiki. dr situ r dia mula tlibat dgn alkohol, prmpuan, etc.. kalau nk ikotkn, Yozo sbnanya sowg y innocent gk r.. tp dsbbkn pngaruh mmbr la dia tjebak dlm lifestyle y teruk. kalau la dia dpt kwn y baik da tntu r dia x kn jd cmtu. kesimpulannya, antara sbb Yozo failed as a human dsbbkn dia x dpt kwl emosi becuz of his trauma + cara dia disosialisasikan + bad influence from his fwen.
  • for me, cter ni de msg y t'sendiri. x leh tgk dr 1 sudut je cz kte xkn nmpak pe sbnanya y nk dsmpaikan olh Dazai in his novel (since diz novel is semi-autobiography y ceritakan bout Yozo tp de ckit kena mngena dgn Dazai.)
  • 4 me, jahat or teruk mana pn sesowg tu, kdg2 kna fikir gk knp dia leh jd cmtu. may be sbb owg tu mmg da jht so datz why la dia cmtu tp y sstgh tu may be de sbb len r. cth cm pe y blaku kt Yozo / Dazai. 
  • jd.... sbna-bnanya, x leh r nk judge ssowg tu ske ati je.. everything happens 4 a reason rite?? de la sbb ttntu owg tu jd cmtu. lw mmpu utk bntu, try la bntu owg cmni. lw dia x nk, kte pn x leh r nk wt pe. tp y plg pntg, tlg r diowg slagi mmpu. dlm kes Yozo ni mslhnya, dia da tpengaruh dgn Horiki so mmg ssh r utk tlg dia.
  • dsbbkan trauma n depresi y truk, dia bbrp kali nk bunuh diri. laz2 mmg dia mati sbb bunuh diri r. sama la cm Dazai. lps dia ciapkan novel NINGEN SHIKKAKU ni, x lama lps tu dia pn bunuh diri gk. datz why la novel ni antara his masterpiece. huhu.. dasat kn?? 
 p/s:
