Meetup Twenty Nine: No Longer Human

Osamu Dazai is considered one of the foremost Japanese author's of the 20th century, producing a variety of offbeat and interesting works during the course of the early part of World War II. No Longer Human is his last and most-often translated work, which explores his own problematic and complex viewpoint towards the world as he contemplated taking his own life. Written as a lightly-veiled novel with mostly an autobiographical inspiration, this work is particularly interesting as the author committed suicide only shortly after it's final part was published in 1948. There bound to be a great deal we can discuss from the work regarding the author's troubled life and the often-encountered concept of the "plight of the artist".
