Silence (沈黙, Chinmoku) is a 1966 novel of theological fiction by Japanese author Shūsaku Endō, published in English by Peter Owen Publishers. It is the story of a Jesuit missionary sent to 17th century Japan, who endures persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan ("Hidden Christians") that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion. The recipient of the 1966 Tanizaki Prize, it has been called "Endo's supreme achievement" and "one of the twentieth century's finest novels"
SHUSAKU ENDO has been called the Japanese Graham Greene. I HAVE outlined the historical background, without which Silence might not easily be understood.
SHUSAKU ENDO has been called the Japanese Graham Greene. If this means that he is a Catholic novelist, that his books are problematic and controversial, that his writing is deeply psychological, that he depicts the anguish of faith and the mercy of God-then it is certainly true. For Mr. Endo has now come to the forefront of the Japanese literary world writing about problems which at one time seemed remote from this country: problems of faith and God, of sin and betrayal, of martyrdom and apostasy.
In my opinion one of the finest novels of our time. He examines Christ and Christianity and "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
70 quotes from Shūsaku Endō: 'Every weakness contains within itself a strength. 'Sin, he reflected, is not what it is usually thought to be; it is not to steal and tell lies. Sin is for one man to walk brutally over the life of another and to be quite oblivious of the wounds he has left behind. and 'Christ did not die for the good and beautiful. It is easy enough to die for the good and beautiful; the hard thing is to die for the miserable and corrupt. Christ did not die for the good and beautiful. Shūsaku Endō, Silence. When you suffer, I suffer with you.
