Genre/Form: Poetry: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Martin, Herbert Woodward. Forms of silence. Detroit: Lotus Press, (OCoLC) Silence is a 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 that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion.

The recipient of the Tanizaki Prize, it has been called "Endo's supreme achievement" and "one of Author: Shūsaku Endō. In Ruta Sepetys’s latest, The Fountains of Silence, I was taken to a sepia-toned summer in s Spain. The entire time I was reading (which wasn’t long, since I flew through the page novel in three days), I felt as if I, too, were walking the cobblestoned streets of /5.

Though God does indeed break his silence by the end of Silence (har har), it's not quite in the way Father Rodrigues expects.

As a Jesuit missionary of Portuguese descent, Silence's Father Sebastien Rodrigues experiences a lot of crazy new things during his time in Japan. In the previous chapter, I argued that silence and speech form a continuum of indiscrete items.
