Summary
Silence is Shusaku Endo’s most highly acclaimed novel. It is the story of an idealistic Portuguese Jesuit priest, Father Sebastian Rodrigues, who in the 1640s sets sail for Japan determined to help the brutally oppressed Japanese Christians and to discover the truth about his former mentor, who is rumoured to have rejected ‘glorious martyrdom’ and apostatized. But once faced with the reality of religious persecution Rodrigues is himself forced to make an impossible choice: whether to abandon his flock or his God.
About the Author
Shusaku Endo(1923-96) is widely regarded as one of the finest novelists of the twentieth century. Writing from the unusual perspective of being Japanese and also a practising Catholic, he won many major literary awards and was nominated for the Nobel Prize several times. His novels, which have been translated into twenty-eight languages, include The Sea and Poison, Wonderful Fool, Deep River and Silence. He died in 1996.
