The Act – “Confessions of a Mask” – Yukio Mishima

August 3rd, 2011 · No Comments · Homosexuality, Literature, Philosophy

My “act” has ended by becoming an integral part of my nature, I told myself. It’s no longer an act. My knowledge that I am masquerading as a normal person has even corroded whatever of normality I originally possessed, ending by making me tell myself over and over again that it too was nothing but a pretense of normality. To say it another way, I’m becoming the sort of person who can’t believe in anything except the counterfeit.
