and music by Don McLean
"Leighton's magnum opus"
Accompanied by Bach's Adagio
Painting Seppuku by Pejac
Today, I better understand this poem, so I'm sharing author's take:
" Japanese tradition is not based on suicide, but on honor and purity. If someone committed meanness and lost honor, he can return it through seppuku instead of being executed with shame. Modern society is more hymn to the criminal than to the victim, so too many vile people continue to live and create their meanness. Therefore, although the traditions of Japan, the Caucasus or other similar old cultures seem too brutal to us, they still have a certain meaning. Of course, my song does not call for suicide, but only describes seppuku in a historical context and rather in an ironic manner using the popular Russian song."
Music of Beethoven is the perfect accompaniment to the painting by Van Gogh The Old Tower in the Fields https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Van_Gogh_-_Der_alte_Friedhofsturm_...
Poem and translation are deeply moving.
